Greenville Lions' home finale moved to Saturday


GREENVILLE —   The Greenville Lions will honor seven seniors in today’s home finale against Royse City.

  The game starts at 3 p.m. with only the varsity scheduled. It was moved from Friday night because of inclement weather as the Greenville Independent School District called off classes.

  The seven seniors to be recognized in pre-game ceremonies are Jerry Dickeson, Collen Wilburn, Marlon Mack, John Franklin, Byron Redmon, Javontae Mitchell and Khy’re Veasley.

  “The Lions need to win their next two games and hope that Wylie East loses their next two games in order for Greenville to have a shot at making the playoffs,” said Greenville coach Marcus Smith. “I’m proud of my seniors and our parent support. Our seniors will truly be missed.”

  Royse City, 10-13 overall, ranks fifth in the District 13-4A standings with a 5-7 record that includes a 68-60 win over Greenville on Jan. 14 at Royse City.

  Greenville is 12-12 overall and ranks sixth in the district standings with a 4-8 mark.

  A Royse City victory today keeps the Bulldogs’ playoff hopes alive and eliminates Greenville from playoff consideration.

Campbell (girls) 52,

Bland 35

  MERIT — Haley Davidson played her first game in five weeks to help the Campbell Lady Indians to a 52-35 warm-up victory over Bland on Friday.

  Davidson, returning from an ankle injury, hit five 3-pointers to finish with 15 points. Sarah Taylor tossed in 12 points and Jordan Davidson added 11 for the No. 24 state-ranked Lady Indians, who improved to 23-5 for the season.

  Bailey Robichaux led Bland with nine points.

  Campbell will face Bloomburg in a bi-district playoff game starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Mount Pleasant.
