Hattiesburg hoops primed for second-round matchup

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg Tigers are back in the playoffs. HHS hosts Wingfield on Saturday at 7 p.m.

The goal is to return to the Coliseum where the Tigers fell in the quarterfinals last season. A tough region and non-region schedule prepared Hattiesburg for the postseason.

“Well, our area is so strong,” said Hattiesburg head coach Ernie Watson. “The teams that we play east and west of us – Petal and Oak Grove – they help us get prepared for this. They do a great job, they’re in the playoffs, second round of course. Our district is tough as well, three of the four teams still in the playoffs. We’re just fortunate to have that great of basketball here.”
