In a day and age where defense is largely an afterthought in basketball, it hasn't been lost on the Starkville High School boys' basketball team.
The Yellowjackets have opened up the young season on a good defensive tear and it showed again on Saturday night. 
SHS limited West Point's offense as it rolled to an easy 73-48 victory inside the Beehive.
"The defense played well," SHS head coach Greg Carter said. "That's four games where our defense has showed up and played pretty well. We defended and rebounded a little better than I thought we would." 
"I knew this was going to be a physical game, (and) hard fought game. It always is (between) us and West Point."
