Vicksburg High School boy’s basketball team improved to 6-0 on Tuesday after defeating Jackson Academy 61-50.

The Gators found themselves trailing 33-31 in the first half but their defense would step up late in the game.

Malik Franklin hit some key shots late in the fourth quarter along with 3-pointers by Markel Derby and Davian Williams to take control of the game.

Franklin finished with 22 points on the night and Williams pitched in 21 in the win. Jalen Banks also scored 14 and Kealon Bass added nine.

VHS will host Brandon on Thursday.
