Gulf Coast takes on Jones

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast has, in theory, a simple path to the MACJC South title: Win twice to clinch at least a share.

The first difficult step will come Monday night, when Jones visits the Weathers-Wentzell Center on Sophomore Night. The Bobcats are in the three-way tie for first in the division along with Pearl River.

Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., with ceremonies honoring the sophomores taking place before the game. The game will be streamed at https://livestream.com/MGCCCBulldogs/events/8568545.
