As to be expected in a game between two ranked teams this one was close from the start and for the majority of the game, McComb led after the first quarter 15-14, the score was tied 32 all at half and again at 42 all after three quarters. A Tim Martin basket about a minute into the fourth gave McComb a 44-42 lead. Over the next four minutes Callaway outscored McComb 15-2 to forge ahead 57-46. Callaway's defense was key during this run as they held McComb to only two points over a six and a half minute stretch. Deville was especially big during this stretch, coming up with three big steals as well as scoring 8 of the 15 points in the run. From that point Callaway spread the floor and made McComb chase them to salt away the win by a final score of 61-52.
The stars shone brightly from the start as both Deville and "Snoop" scored 9 first quarter points. The rest of the game was a different story however, as White only tallied 6 more points for the game, finishing with 15, while Deville proved to be a constant force throughout tallying 8 more points through the end of the third quarter and then taking a strangle hold on the game in the fourth finishing with 27 points. McComb did, however receive a strong performance from 6-foot-5 junior TraDarrius Holloway who scored 17 points, 15 of them coming in the first three quarters before falling victim to the strong Callaway defense.
Callaway's record now stands at 11-5 while McComb slipped to 15-2 on the season.
