Minden vs. Huntington (boys)
SHREVEPORT – The Minden Crimson Tide (10-14, 1-4) fell to Huntington 65-50 Friday night at the Raiders’ Gym.
“I was really encouraged with the effort our guys gave against a top-3 team is our district,” Bailey said. “We were down by as many as 20 in the fourth quarter but cut it to 10 late. We showed some resolve and that we won’t quit.”
Sophomore Jalen Teal came off the Bench to lead Minden with 11 points.
“He gave us a lift by making some shots,” Bailey said. “I thought Kelcey Miller did a good job tonight from an offensive standpoint; Adrian Flournoy came off the bench and gave good minutes. I see signs of growth, and as a coach that’s what you want.”

Minden vs. Huntington (girls)
SHREVEPORT – The Minden Lady Tiders saw their 16-game winning streak snapped Friday night against the Huntington Lady Raiders in a 59-39 rout.
Minden (22-3, 5-1) and Huntington each came into Friday night’s contest unbeaten in district 1-4A, but the Lady Tiders faded in the second half against the Lady Raiders.
Minden trailed 13-8 after one quarter of play and 25-18 at halftime. Huntington’s size began to wear on Minden as second and third chance opportunities led to foul trouble for Jacob Brown’s team and points for the Lady Raiders.
“We needed to play aggressive tonight,” Brown said. “But I thought we were on our heels. We settled for perimeter shots and didn’t ever get any second chance opportunities.”
The Lady Tiders stayed in the game despite their shooting woes thanks to their touch at the free-throw line, going 9-11 in the first half.
Huntington extended their lead with a 20-13 third quarter and cruised to the finish in a low-scoring fourth.
“The streak is over,” Brown said. “It’s time to start a new one. This was a tough overall game, but I feel like this team will rebound from what took place. We have three of our final four ball games at home; the district race is not over.”
Sha Whiting led the Lady Tiders with 16 points, followed by Strawberry Batton with 15 points.
