Both the Belhaven men’s and women’s basketball teams suffered tough losses in their last games Tuesday, Nov. 26.

The women fell to Rhodes College last night in overtime 93-92. The loss would be the lady’s first loss of the season, and some players still managed to put up impressive numbers. Mariah Collins had 27 points in the night along with her eight rebounds. Keke Lyles also had good numbers by scoring 19 points to go with her nine rebounds.

The men also struggled last night as they played the Rhodes Lynxes in a heated battle that resulted in 108-98 Blazer loss. The Blazers were only down by three at halftime but at the end of the third quarter, they were down by 23 points. Both Brosnan Cooks and Ryan Dupree had 22 points for the Blazers. Kelvin Pruitt added 16 points for the Blazers, but the team still fell short to the Lynxes.

Warren Central football player Taylen Smith wrapped up his senior season of football with the Vikings on a high note.

Smith holds the record for all high schools in the Vicksburg Warren School District for defensive sacks this season. He helped lead the Vikings to the playoffs under head coach Josh Morgan, finishing with eight sacks on the year, and he was a key reason the Vikings had a successful 9-3 season.

Smith’s talent was apparent early in the season when he had 15 tackles in the Red Carpet Bowl against Vicksburg High School. By the end of the season, he finished with an impressive 43 tackles.

Smith’s skills aren’t limited to tackling. He also made two interceptions and returned them both for touchdowns.

His high school football career may be over, but Smith announced Wednesday that he had received a scholarship offer from Coahoma Community College.

He has not officially committed to any school, yet, as he could be receiving more offers soon.

Vicksburg natives DeMichael Harris and Malcolm Butler went head to head again Sunday night when the Indianapolis Colts took on the Tennessee Titans.

Butler led Titans to the 45-26 victory over the Colts, but both teams are having a great season.

Butler finished the game with four tackles and one interception for the Titans. Harris rushed one time for 2 yards and caught one pass for 1 yard for the Colts.

The two Vicksburg natives met for the first time last month when the Colts defeated the Titans 34-17, but this time it would be Butler and the Titans who took home the win.
