Bay High Lady Tigers Advance While The Picayune Maroon Tide Drop Out Of The 4A Title Chase

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) _ Kendra Reed scored 19 points to lead Bay St. Louis to a 67-60 victory over Jackson Provine in the MHSAA Class 4A girls' semifinals Friday night at the Mississippi
Coliseum.

The game was a rematch of last year's 4A final won by Provine.

Carmen Labat had 18 points and Stephanie Reed scored 17 for Bay St. Louis (34-1), which ended the regular season as co-No. 1 in the state along with Class 5A Columbus.

Keisha Carter led Provine (25-7) 17 points, Jessica Houston had 14 and Anesia McBride 10.

Bay St. Louis led 33-28 at half and it stayed close throughout.

The Lady Tigers, who have won 13 straight, will play the winner of Saturday's game between Canton and Yazoo City for the 4A title on Thursday.

4A Boys:  Charlie White scored 19 points and Jeremy Young had 13 as Jackson Provine defeated Picayune 44-37 on Friday night at the MHSAA Class 4A boys' state tournament.

The Rams (25-5) play the winner of Saturday's Jackson Lanier-St. Stanislaus game at the Jackson Coliseum on Thursday for the 4A championship.

Provine is the first Mississippi team to beat Picayune this season.

Earl Fortenberry scored 16 points to lead Picayune (31-3), which had its 20-game winning streak snapped. The Maroon Tide was looking for its second straight trip to the finals. They were the 4A
runners-up last season.

Provine led 19-17 at the half.

The Rams last played in the finals in 1999.
