Crossett Eagles Basketball Coach Dominic Lincoln said the Eagles are working to get healthier and better after losing two consecutive games.

 The first game was against McGehee on Friday, and the second game — against Watson Chapel — followed the weekend.

“Some of it is us not having some key guys available for us right now, but we will get healthier and continue to get better,” Lincoln said. 

When the Eagles hosted the McGehee Owls, they dropped the game by six points, ending with 54-49 on the board in the Owls’ favor.

“We didn’t play with enough sense of urgency to win a basketball game,” Lincoln said. “McGehee just outplayed us and was more physical.”

Jackson Moore led the offense with 16 points and Jaylon Brown came in behind him with 13 points.

Dewayne Ashford scored 10 points.

On Monday night the boys hosted Watson Chapel and took a hard loss when Watson Chapel bested them by more than double, closing out the game with a score of 56-22.

Jaylon Brown lead the offense with nine points.

“Watson Chapel is a really good team, and well-coached,” Lincoln said. 

The Eagles won’t play again until after the break when they travel to Monticello. Lincoln said that Crossett should have its full team back at that time.
