The win pushes the Bulldogs' record to 9-4. The Lady Bulldogs are now 3-8 on the season.

Rodney Roberts had a solid performance for the Bulldogs with a double-double, 13 points and 11 rebounds. Tim Daniels led the way in scoring with 15 points, and Deltrick Sneed was close behind with 14.

"Our team is continuing to improve, especially in the area of defense and rebounding," Boys' Coach Michael Thomas said.

Nikosha Hudson led the scoring efforts in the Lady Bulldogs' win with 13. Nicole Kendrick pulled down 13 rebounds.

Girl's Coach Eric Rogers said during the weekend's games, Hudson showed some senior leadership and put up some great numbers like 12 steals and six assists in two games.

Thomson's LaQuintin Fort slices through two defenders for a layup.

On Friday, that leadership and Kim Johnson's 11 points couldn't put the Lady Bulldogs over the top of a tough Glenn Hills team. The Lady Spartans came away with the 51-31 win.

The boys, however, beat Glenn Hills 72-64 behind 16 points from Roberts and 14 from Sneed. Last Tuesday, Jan. 3, the Bulldogs fell in Augusta to Cross Creak 67-63 despite four players scoring in double figures, including 23 points from Daniels.

Cross Creek's girls also beat the Lady Bulldogs, 60-44. Johnson had 18 points in the loss. Dominque Reese added 11 points and five steals. Hudson had six steals of her own, and Chiquita Kendrick dished out 7 assists.

"We came out and didn't play too bad during the first quarter.We struggled to hit any shots, had plenty of opportunities but nothing would drop," Coach Rogers said."We fought our way through and had some chances in the second half but just couldn't get over the hump."

Tomorrow, both teams will travel to Harlem. On Saturday, Richmond Academy will play host to both Thomson teams.
