WINNSBORO — The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats split two games Thursday to open the Winnsboro Hoop Fest basketball tournament.
    The Lady Cats won over the Winnsboro junior varsity in morning action.

    In the second game of the tournament, Sulphur Springs saw their record drop to 5-1 with a 56-37 loss at the hands of No. 2-ranked  Class 1A, Div. I Martins Mill.
    The Lady Cats were defeated by a spirited Martins Mill team which took advantage of the Lady Cats playing their second game of the day. Point guard and leading scorer Desi Debase, who averages 18.4 points per game, was limited in her playing time. She just had seven points, leaving the game with a knee injury.
    "We were up and competing with Desi in the game. Then she hurt her knee and said she could not go and we took her out. We really don't know much about the injury," said Jeff Chapman, Sulphur Springs head girls basketball coach. "When we don't have her (Desi) in the game it puts us at a disadvantage. Not only is she our No. 1 (point guard) but she also brings the ball up and is our top scorer. The other players feed off her. So, we were using in experienced players against a tough team.  They did the best they could, they are just young and learning."
    Daieyshia Pruitt was high point for Sulphur Springs with 10 for the game. Destiny Wade and Desi Debase had seven points each. Chrissalynd Person added five with Kasey Moore scoring four each. Lexi Moore and Shakoja Debase had two points each.
    Chapman said, "Martins Mill played a man-to-man defense and then used a 2-2-1 zone. We were up early, but lost when Desi had to go out. Martins Mill is a good team. They had a strong inside game and we had trouble stopping them from catching and scoring inside. They doubled team Destiny Wade and that really hurt us. ”
