Kelsey Jones came out slow in her first home game of the season for the Starkville Lady Yellowjackets Tuesday night.
She only had six points in two quarters of play against the Louisville Lady Wildcats and SHS coach Kristie Williams knew Jones could play better.
The Starkville Yellowjackets wore t-shirts in warmups that had the message on the back that coach Greg Carter has preached for years to his teams â€“ "defend and rebound."

After leading 25-17 at halftime, Hebron pulled away in the second half and won a 67-46 decision.
Mississippi State's mantra was "We Believe" heading to Alabama at 7-0 in 2012.
It didn't work out too well for the Bulldogs, as they dropped a 38-7 decision to the Crimson Tide and lost four of their last five games to end the season.Â
Hard work pays off no matter what the sport.
Week in and week out there is a crop of high school athletes that go out and give their all to make their school proud or even to catch the eye of watching college scout.
When it comes to the Eupora Eagles, Will Bowen brings that trait to the field.
The Mississippi State women who patrol the post this season had better get ready to receive the basketball.
