MADISON â€“ Ask Starkville boys basketball coach Greg Carter about his teamâ€™s game on Friday night and he will quickly tell you it was just not the Yellowjackets night.
After getting down early, the Jackets did all they could, but it was not enough as Madison Central picked the Class 6A, Region 3 championship with a 57-39 victory.
â€śWe were not very good defensively or offensively in the very beginning,â€ť Carter said. â€śWe didnâ€™t guard very well and once we adjusted to that, they had already built a bit of a lead. We played uphill the rest of the game. We never got over the hump, but my hats off to them.â€ť
