The Starkville Lady Yellowjackets built a huge lead early against rival West Point at home Saturday night and gave coach Kristie Williams a chance to see some of her younger players in action.
One of those players seized the opportunity.
Freshman post player Kelsey Jones recorded a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds as the Lady Jackets defeated the Lady Green Wave 62-26.
Williams has been pleased with the development of the young Jones.
"She came in and gave us a big lift," Williams said. "We knew she had it in her and was the reason why we moved her up after her 8th grade season. We know she has the potential to be a great post player and she showed some of those signs (Saturday night). I was very pleased with her effort throughout the game."
