Lady Bulldogs ready for Round 3 vs. JC

Lady Bulldogs ready for Round 3 vs. JC

PERKINSTON — When Mississippi Gulf Coast takes the floor for the MACJC Tournament semifinals Wednesday, it'll be the third time they've played Jones this season. 

The Lady Bulldogs showed great improvement the second time they played the No. 13 Lady Bobcats. The first meeting was a 34-point loss; the second time, 12 points.

"Tomorrow night, we really have to do a great job of controlling Keyara Jones and Destiny Hamer," Gulf Coast coach Hope Adams said. "We did a great job doing that here, but we allowed their role players to have a good game. I think tomorrow if we can control them, and if we take care of the basketball, we've got a good chance."

Tipoff is set for 5:30 p.m. in Ellisville. The game will be streamed at http://jcjc.tv, and live stats will be available at https://nwccrangers.com/sidearmstats/wbball/summary.

Jones and Hamer combined for 43 points in a 91-57 win at Ellisville. They managed only 18 in an 80-68 win at the Weathers-Wentzell Center.

Breannah McCullah (So., Edwards/Raymond) had 18 points and five steals at Perk, and Kayla Simmons (Fr., Brandon/Brandon) and Shelli Thigpen (So., Wylie, Texas/Wylie) each had 16.
