Rebel basketball sweeps Richwood
Monroe freshman and junior varsity boys basketball swept a pair of games versus Richwood on Monday.
In freshman action, the Rebels defeated the Rams 45-38.
In the JV game, Kennan McGarr poured in 15 points while Charleston Simpkins added 11 points in a 47-35 win over Richwood.
“We played hard,” West Monroe JV coach Lonnie Cooper said. “That is the key to this year. If we play hard, and we defend, we have a chance to win every game.”
A 6-0 run toward the end of the first quarter by West Monroe set the tone for the rest of the game. By halftime, West Monroe led 27-10.
The Rebel JV team and varsity are back in action Tuesday, hosting Neville at 5 p.m. The varsity game will begin immediately afterwards.
