MERIDIAN —     Meridian High School received 19 points from Dennis Miles and lockdown defense from Jaricus Hubbard as the Wildcats upended top-ranked Callaway 46-40 at home Saturday night.

    Miles, a Dandy Dozen selection by the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, led Meridian in scoring but just as big to the 6-2 Wildcats’ success was the defensive play of Hubbard against Callaway’s sophomore star Malik Newman, who was held to just nine points.

    Torlorf Thomas added 14 points for Meridian, which also got seven from point guard Jevaughnte Harris.

    Meridian hosts South Jones on Thursday.
