Hattiesburg High girls basketball team could play very soon

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A United States District Court ruled on Friday that the case brought against the Mississippi High School Activities Association by Hattiesburg High dandy dozen guard Tiaria Griffin and her mother will be brought back to the Chancery (or state) court.

What this essentially means is the complaint for injunctive filed by Griffin and her mother in the state court could be put back into effect, which may allow the Hattiesburg girls basketball team to play again.

The team is currently suspended for the remainder of the season for allowing Griffin to play, even after the MHSAA ruled her ineligible for residency issues.

Though the case is back in state court, a ruling is still pending. The tigers' next game is scheduled for Dec. 13 at Oak Grove.
