Tuesday afternoon the Picayune Lady Maroon Tide basketball team fell to the West Harrison Hurricanes by 48-20.

“Effort was so much better than Friday night at PRC, coming back after getting beat by your rival that bad it can go ugly or it can be used as a spring board, and I’m proud of the girls. They used it as a spring board,” said Head Coach Toby Bush.

The Lady Maroon Tide were short a few player due to illnesses but the remaining players gave a great effort. They succeeded in Bush’s ability to rebound and make free throws.
