SHREVEPORT – Minden High School tipped off basketball season Tuesday night versus Southwood.

“I wasn’t happy with the loss, but I was happy with some things we did,” Shaw said. “I thought the kids fought hard. Considering we’ve only had a couple practices together I thought we played pretty well together.”
