Huntington-Mansfield develop rivalry

For the third time in this tournament-laden prep basketball season, Huntington and Mansfield met in a tourney game, this one the semifinals of the Bossier Invitational.

In case you're scoring at home, the count now is Huntington 3, Mansfield 0.

But on Friday it looked as if it could go either way. Until a dominant third-quarter performance by Kendrick Washington, Mansfield was in the game.

Huntington coach Mack Jones praised the Wolverines while Mansfield coach Chris Thomas was looking to face someone other than the Raiders in a tournament.

Washington's duel with Mansfield's Chris Davenport should have local hoops fans salivating. Both are juniors. Both are a proverbial load to defend and both have yet to hit their peak.

Mansfield, meanwhile, is playing very well and looks like it has a chance to go deep into the Class 2A state playoffs based on its play against higher-classification schools thus far.
