BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Biloxi dropped three games to Division 8-6A rival Harrison Central this season and the Red Rebelettes lost two games to Starkville. On paper you would say Biloxi doesn't stand a chance on Wednesday.
Championships are won with good coaching, talent, some luck and having the right attitude, believing you can do the impossible.
The Lady Indians won't back down from Wednesday's monumental challenge.
Biloxi head coach Devin Hill must come up with a game plan to stop Starkville, a team that stands tall inside the paint highlighted by a 6-foot-3 center.
Coach Hill will count on playmaker Breanna Riley to run the show. She's one of the most athletic players in the state and Breanna does-it-all. She's netting 13.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.2 steals and 3.2 assists per game.
Hill said. "She's just a dynamic playmaker. Very good athlete. A lot of teams are going to key on her and she does a good job of making that extra pass and getting the other girls involved."
Riley can be described as explosive. She's says growing up she competed with the boys in the neighborhood and that made Riley a better basketball player.
"When I was young I played in my yard., "said Riley. "My basketball goal with the boys and stuff and I've always been tough with the boys. I had a court around my house, so I played with a lot of guys. That's how I became the way I am now. More athletic.
Remember this is a game and any team can be beaten on any given day or night and Starkville is no exception.
