The Neshoba Central Lady Rockets picked up their first Region 2-5A victory over the season last week as they took a 38-29 win over Yazoo City in prep basketball action.
The Lady Rockets now stand at 12-6 overall and 1-3 in the region standings. They have two region games left as they visit Canton Friday and host Starkville on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
"We need to win our last two games to avoid being the No. 4 seed in the region tournament," coach Fred Morris said. "We played better against Yazoo City but we still have a ways to go."
Neshoba Central led 16-8 at the half. The Lady Rockets outscored the Lady Indians 16-9 in the third quarter and held on for the win.
Breona Foster led Neshoba Central with 13 points and T'keya Backstrom added nine.
A game with Kosciusko was canceled. The Neshoba Central boys lost their game to Yazoo City.
