Lady Bulldogs entertain No. 4 JC

Lady Bulldogs entertain No. 4 JC

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast's push to make its first MACJC Tournament since 2012-13 has a stern test Monday when No. 4 Jones visits the Weathers-Wentzell Center on Sophomore Night.

The Lady Bulldogs have won four straight games and are tied for second in the South Division with Copiah-Lincoln, with Pearl River and East Central a game behind. Their magic number to clinch a playoff spot outright is a combination of two MGCCC victories and losses by either PRCC or ECCC.

Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., with ceremonies to honor the sophomores taking place afterward. The game will be streamed at https://livestream.com/MGCCCBulldogs/events/8568545.
