The West Ouachita boys basketball team fell in the nightcap of a doubleheader against Woodlawn-Shreveport 69-48 on Tuesday.
The Chiefs struggled offensively and had crucial turnovers that stopped scoring opportunities.
“This game showed us some things we are good at, and what we need to work on,” Coach Derek Lopez said. “We got beat on the glass. We had too many turnovers. If you give a good team like (Woodlawn) second and third chances then eventually that ball is going through the hole.”
Woodlawn led the entire way including 10-8 at the end of the first quarter and 29-17 at halftime.
“I like where we are at with our man-to-man half-court defense,” Lopez said. “(Woodlawn) just took advantage of some of the things we are not good at.”
Telvin Thomas had a hot hand from beyong the arc for Woodlawn. Thomas scored a game-high 25 points to lead the Knights. Willie Reed added 15 points for Woodlawn.
TR Masters scored 18 points to lead West Ouachita. Saxton Becker poured in 13 points for the Chiefs.
