The sting of defeat can be a tough thing.
It will especially be felt hard with a loss in the first round of the North Class 6A Tournament boys game tonight between the Starkville Yellowjackets and Greenville Weston Hornets.
Despite having an extremely successful season, where they have collected an overall record of 23-4 to this point, the Jackets know all of that work could come to a crushing halt if they do not take care of business in Greenville.
"This is the most important game of the year," SHS boys coach Greg Carter said. "It's a win or go home game. It's an elimination game. This one and the next one are like that, but you don't get to the next one if you don't win this one."
