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.

Despite the loss, Vicksburg still has advanced to the MHSAA Class 6A state tournament that begins next week and will host a first-round game.
The Gators will host Lake Cormorant on Feb. 17.
