McAdams’ 13-game winning streak and hopes for a state championship came to an end Monday with a 62-30 loss to Biggersville in the MHSAA 1A semifinals at the Mississippi Coliseum.
In reaching the semifinals, the Bulldogs scored 80, 75 and 73 points in victories over Sacred Heart, Mt. Olive and Leake County. But against Biggersville it was a case of cold shooting that resulted in the season’s lowest point total.
McAdams actually took leads on two occasions in the first quarter — 3-2 on a three-pointer by Jaylan Perteet and 5-4 on a basket by Jalena Greer. A layup Tyrick Davis off a feed from Perteet made it 7-4 midway through the first quarter, but the Bulldogs then went scoreless for more than six minutes as Biggersville took control with a 13-0 run.
It was 26-11 at the half and 43-15 through three quarters.
Perteet, one of only two seniors on the team, finished with 13 points, giving him 69 in four playoff games.
Zae Davis had a game-high 17 points for Biggersville before leaving the game in the final minute of the third period.
Biggersville (25-4) will play Ingomar or McEvans in the championship game Thursday.
