There was no questioning that Starkville showed up to ready to play on day two of the Travis Outlaw Slam Dunk at the Hump tournament.
After day one of competition saw the Yellowjackets defeat Parkview on Thursday, they posted a convincing 51-18 victory over Lausanne Collegiate from Memphis on Friday.
“They did a great job,” Lausanne head coach Kenneth White said. “They are well-coached and very athletic. They got in the paint entirely too easy on us (Friday night) which opened it up for them late to hit some 3s on us. They limited us to one shot and they were right back down the floor. They did a great job.”
The first period was all about defense and getting out in transition for Starkville. Highlighted by a Richard Evans rebounded ball, which he took coast to coast, a Zeb Rice 3-pointer from the left wing and put back from Raphael Leonard to end the period, Starkville enjoyed a 17-0 lead.
