Alcovy girls in position for first region title
Alcovy teams complete 3-0 week
Alcovy's boys put the finishing touches on a perfect week with a 61-52 win over Woodland-Henry. The Tigers looked much different than the first time they played Woodland. Instead of scoring a season-low 35 points, Alcovy broke the 60-point barrier for the fourth straight game.
Alcovy (13-6, 6-2 Region 3A-AAAA) has rebounded from its three-game losing streak in mid December to win six straight. The Tigers have two three-game losing streaks followed by a seven and six-game winning streak respectively.
Alcovy sits second in the region standings with a half-game lead over Union Grove. They visit the Wolverines Monday for the first time this season. Monday's game is a rescheduled region game.
Alcovy's girls also capped a stellar week with a win over Woodland-Henry. The Lady Tigers took the contest 68-58.
Alcovy (18-2, 8-0) is the lone team without a region loss. On the other side of the region (subregion 3B-AAAA), it's Fayette County leading the charge at 6-0. Should both teams keep it going, they could meet in the region championship next month with a top seed at the state playoffs on the line.
Alcovy closes out the season with two games against Union Grove and home games against Dutchtown and Jones County. Alcovy's final three games are at home. Eastside girls miss chance to even standings
Eastside's boy's fell to 2-9 in Region 4-AAA play after a 67-61 loss to Sandy Creek Friday.
Since opening the season 4-2, Eastside has fallen on hard times. After Friday's loss to, the Eagles have won just one of their last 13 games.
Eastside has four games remaining to turn things around and earn a higher seed for the region tournament which starts next month.
Eastside's girls were also unable to knock off Sandy Creek and pull even in the standings. Sandy Creek completed the season sweep with a 49-45 win.
After falling to the Patriots earlier this month, Eastside's girls could have tied them for the top spot with a win. Instead, they'll look to secure the second seed with a home game against Stockbridge Tuesday and three road games to finish the regular season.
