Billies win big, build confidence
This has been a season to forget in many ways for Monticello, but a 79-54 blowout win over Lake Village Lakeside on the road Friday might have changed that.
The Billies drew within two games of the .500 mark for the first time all winter at 8-10—and have won four of their last five outings in preparation for the stretch run.
Seniors Jase Whitfield and Devario Ballard paced Monticello to the Desha County win with 19 and 16 points, respectively. A planned trip to Junction City on Tuesday to hopefully continue the momentum was snowed out, so the next time the Billies will take the court in Friday at home against McGehee.
