Bulldogs go into break 8-1

Mississippi Gulf Coast had its worst long-range shooting game of the season but still defeated Delgado 78-62 on Wednesday in New Orleans.


Four Bulldogs finished in double digits, led by Davion Cole-Johnson's 19 points. Tedrian Brisco (6-5, 195, So., Porter's Chapel/Vicksburg) finished with a double-double.


"Our defense was good, and our rebounding was really good," Gulf Coast coach Wendell Weathers said. "But offensively, we were a little out of sync."


The Bulldogs improved to 8-1. They got 14 points and 10 rebounds from Brisco, and Zach Parker (6-2, 185, So., Biloxi/Biloxi) and Stacee St. Julian (6-0, 165, Fr., St. Martin/St. Martin) scored 13 each.


Cole-Johnson (6-4, 210, So., Pike/Glen Ellyn, Ill.) also grabbed eight rebounds and had four assists. St. Julian had five assists and four assists, with Parker grabbing eight boards as well.


Gulf Coast made only 4 of 20 shots from behind the 3-point line, the lowest percentage of the fall. It was the third-most shots behind the arc the Bulldogs have attempted.


"That's a big part of our offense," Weathers said. "We might have taken too many of those, but the ones we took were really good shots. They're ones we usually make."


Delgado falls to a deceiving 0-10.


"Delgado's way better than their record," Weathers said. "We had a chance to really move this thing out early, and actually got behind in the second half. It took us a little while to get this thing going the way we wanted to do."


Gulf Coast is finished until after the Christmas break. The Bulldogs entertain Delgado on Jan. 7 in Perkinston.


"The kids are ready for the break," Weather said. "They know we don't play any more until after Christmas. It's one of those deals where they have one foot on the floor and one foot out the door."
