LaQuinton Ross, Rodney Hood and DeMarcus Cousins Update

DeMarcus Cousins' All-American Senior season transformed LeFlore into a National powerhouse. They finished the season ranked 9th in the Nation according to MaxPreps and 13th according to USAToday. The Rattlers finished the regular season with a 24-2 record and they weren't about to let their 11 game winning streak snap as they entered the Regional tourney this past Friday. LeFlore went on to win the Regional tournament by defeating Citronelle (2/6/09 -- 84-32) and Faith Academy (2/9/09 -- 114-59) by an average of 48.5ppg. LeFlore earned themselves a home game in the first round of the 5A Alabama State Tournament tomorrow night against Spanish Fort.

Meridian has had a heck of a season. They finished the regular season 24-4 and they just took down Oak Grove on Tuesday night in the first round of the Regional Tourney. Super Soph Rodney Hood scored 15 points in the 72-42 triumph.

Murrah finished the regular season off with a win over Warren Central last Friday night. LaQuinton continued to be the rock of this team by leading his team to a 89-74 victory with his 24 points. Murrah has had their ups and downs this season and have even persevered through the tragedy of losing one of their fellow teammates in a car accident. Murrah's other Dandy Dozen was involved in the wreck and was lost for the remainder of the season. Murrah finished the regular season on a 3 game winning streak and this helped propel them to a first round victory over Madison Central in their Regional Tourney this past Tuesday night. LaQuinton Ross had 26 points in the 73-52 victory. Murrah seems to be hitting their stride at the perfect time as they enter post season play.
