Due to severe winter weather — by South Mississippi standards, anyway — there was only one basketball game reported Tuesday night. St. Martin went on the road and defeated Long Beach 40-28 thanks in large part to a 15-0 run in the third quarter.

JaRonn Wilkens led the Yellow Jackets with 14 points, 12 rebounds and four steals. Jariyon Wilkens added 13 points and three assists for St. Martin (12-7).
