Thomson basketball teams have long week

Last week was a tough one for Thomson basketball. Both the boys' and girls' teams lost all three of their games.

The Richmond Academy boys came to the Doghouse and went away with a 62-57 win on Jan. 10. Deltrick Sneed was the only Bulldog in double figures with 14 points in the game.

"It was a good defensive game by LaQuinton Fort and Nathaniel Jones on their guards," Thomson coach Michael Thomas said.

On Jan. 13, the boys (9-7) traveled to Harlem, who barely held them off for a 66-65 win over Thomson. Harlem senior Sean Hackshaw sank two free throws in the game's final minute to seal the come-from-behind win.

Fred Johnson led the black and gold Bulldogs with 19 points. Sneed had 17, and Tim Daniels added 11.

Daniels' 22 point performance wasn't enough to hold off ARC on Jan. 14. Thomson fell 80-69 in Augusta. Johnson put up 18 points, and Sneed had 14. Coach Thomas said it was "not good defense the last four minutes of the fourth quarter," that contributed to Thomson's downfall.

The Lady Bulldogs (3-11) also fell to ARC in Thomson on Jan. 10, 53-39. At Harlem, Domonique Reese's 18 points, all from three-pointers, couldn't bring Thomson a win. Coach Eric Rogers' team lost 49-41.

"She's a good shooter, and she's just starting to play consistently," Coach Rogers said. "We're still a young team, but we got some good experience tonight."

Thomson had already lost to Harlem by 12 during the two teams' previous meeting in December, but the visiting Lady Bulldogs led 33-30 after three quarters of play in the Jan. 13 game. Thomson's lead quickly dissolved as Harlem freshman Nicole Wells scored six points in an 11-0 Harlem run to start the fourth quarter.

The next night, the Lady Bulldogs faced a rematch with ARC. The Lady Musketeers came away with a 52-33 win in Augusta.

Both Thomson teams will end a five-game road swing with their next home game on Jan. 27 against Cross Creek.
