GHS beats Rehobeth, heads to Mobile

The Greenville High Tigers will bounce on to the regional tournament after a 77-62 win over Rehobeth.

Greenville coach Bryant Marlow said despite the outcome, his Tigers got off to a rocky start.

“We just never fell into a real rhythm the first half,” Marlow said. “The shots just weren’t falling.”

The two teams went into halftime with the score knotted at 34-34.

Halftime provided the GHS Tigers with time to reflect upon and readjust their strategy. That, Marlow said, is when things started to go their way.

“We started taking it to the basket and scoring points there,” Marlow said. “We made a few more adjustments and never looked back.”

Jamie Williams lead the Tigers with a formidable 21 total points. Nick McHenry and Brently Hill had 17 and 11 points respectively.

“Rehobeth came out and played hard,” Marlow said. “We just had to match their intensity.”

Matching their intensity meant shutting down Rehobeth’s rebounds, which Marlow said cost his Tigers the most points.

From here, it is win or go home.

The Tigers play Faith Academy at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

If they win, they will face the winner of the Wilcox-Central and LeFlore game in the finals at 2 p.m. Friday.
