Published 11:37 pm Friday, February 9, 2024

Ridgeland continued to be Vicksburg High’s Kryptonite.

The Titans used a big third quarter to pull ahead of Vicksburg and then stayed there to beat the Gators 57-48 in the MHSAA Region 2-6A boys basketball tournament championship game on Friday.

Ridgeland (21-9) beat Vicksburg (21-6) in all three meetings this season, making it responsible for half of the Gators’ losses — and all three of its losses since mid-December.
