MGCCC faces must-win at PRCC

Mississippi Gulf Coast games against archrival Pearl River are always intense, but Thursday's renewal of the series is game of vital importance in the MACJC South race.

The 5:30 p.m. tipoff will launch a game the Lady Bulldogs desperately need to solidify their position in the division playoff chase. Gulf Coast and PRCC are tied for second with Copiah-Lincoln, and East Central is just a game behind.

Quotable

"If we get this win, I think it will go a long way to securing a spot in the state tournament. The main thing we're focusing on is trying to figure out is why we gave us so many open shots in the first game. We're a better team defensively now, and we're better offensively watching the film. Everybody understands their roles." – Gulf Coast coach Hope Adams
