Bulldogs getting back in shape

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast coach Wendell Weathers says don't be deceived by Delgado's winless mark.


The Bulldogs (8-1) handed the Dolphins one of their 12 losses this season on Dec. 7 in New Orleans, winning 78-62. The rematch is Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Weathers/Wentzell Center.


"I don't think they're going to do anything particularly different," Weathers said. "I think they're just going to come play really hard. They are a much better team than their record indicates. They've got good size, they run well, they score well. They are a team that's very capable of beating you if you're not playing well."


Gulf Coast had its poorest long-distance shooting night of the season against Delgado, making just 4 of 20. The Bulldogs still rank 13th in the nation by making 41.4 percent of their 3-point attempts.


Weathers has been trying to get his team's legs back underneath them with a heavy dose of practices this week before classes resume.


"I don't know how much we've accomplished," he said Thursday. "By this time next week, we'll be OK. Now whether or not we'll be OK for Saturday, I have no idea."


The Bulldogs have also spent a lot of time running through their offensive sets.


"We have got a lot of stuff in so far," Weathers said. "Taking three weeks off, they forget. What you're trying to do is get back where you were in five days when it took you 2-1/2 months the first time."
