Green Sea Floyds basketball battling inexperience

 Nichols – With rosters loaded with underclassmen, the 2019-20 basketball teams at Green Sea Floyds High are saddled with inexperience and looking to find late season success.

Neither team has had much success through the early stages of the season but have enough games remaining to salvage a solid campaign.

The girls team has been a perennial class A playoff participant in recent years but has very little in the way of senior leadership as coach Tracy Kienast rebuilds the roster.

There is very little in the way of consistent offensive production on the team, which has resulted in a 3-10 start. The Trojans will have two region games each with Lake View and Hemingway in the final two weeks and those games will determine any playoff possibilities.

One of the few seniors, Keyonna Ridges, is leading the team on the floor. Ridges is averaging 6.4 points and 5.0 rebounds per game early on. Sophomore Shireona Johnson adds about 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per contest. Senior Brieonna Gore is one of the top rebounders with 5.8 boards per game. Jyshae Pope is contributing 5.1 points and a team-leading 6.6 rebounds per game.

Rounding out the roster this winter are Michavelyn Richburg, Jamya Elmore, Alissa Arocho, Tydaysha Brown, Jayana Tippins, Laquza Martin, Shaquay Richardson, Janiya Richburg, Deanjhane Oliver, Caroline Davis and Hannah Becker.

The boys team got off to a late start due to the successful state championship run of the football team. Several members of the basketball team also played football and the Trojans, as could be expected, struggled to find a win in the first month of the season.

The team has only two seniors on its roster – Jajuan Arocho and Ethan Damron. Arocho is averaging 7.8 points and leads the team in rebounding at 8.0 caroms per game. Damron adds 3.5 points per game.

Sophomore Dalton Stroud is having a very good season to date, scoring about 15 points per game. Another sophomore, Jaquez Williams, is adding nearly 10 points per outing with 4.2 rebounds per game.

Junior Jaquan Dixon is contributing nearly six points and five rebounds per game, while junior Da’shan Scott is adding nearly four points and five boards per game.

Rounding out the roster are juniors Dayshawn Davis and Cael Kienast, and sophomore Austin Damron.
