Both Biscuit Floyd of Harrison Central and West Harrison's Ameshya Williams had monster weeks for their respective teams.

Floyd, helped get his Red Rebels back above .500 with a rivalry win over Gulfport and then a come-from-behind win over Bay High at Hoopsfest.

Against his former Admirals teammates, Floyd tied the game with 2:27 remaining and then had key assists late in the 64-55 win. He finished with a game-high 24 points.

Bay jumped out to an early 15-4 lead at Hoopsfest on Saturday, but thanks to a second-half explosion from Floyd, the Red Rebels pulled out a 58-35 victory. Sixteen of Floyd's 18 points came in the second half.

West Harrison pushed its winning streak to 12 games with a pair of wins last week against Gautier and Pascagoula. Williams averaged a double-double on the week. The forward scored 18 points with 11 rebounds against Gautier. Against Pascagoula, Williams dominated to the tune of 44 points -- a career-high -- and 15 rebounds.
