Bulldogs close out successful road trip

Mississippi Gulf Coast couldn't have had a more successful road trip than the one the Bulldogs finished off Friday morning with a 60-48 win over Mississippi Delta.

Gulf Coast was playing its second game in the span of 18.5 hours in the Lady Rangers Classic in Senatobia.

"We're coming back 4-0, so that's good," coach Hope Adams said. "Ataliya Brown played good, and she was 12-for-12 from the free-throw line."

Brown, a freshman from Crestview, Fla., poured in 19 points and had six rebounds, five steals and three assists. Four Bulldogs added nine points in a balanced scoring attack: Amayla Sharif (Fr., Phoebus/Chester, Pa), Kelsi Jackson (Fr., South Jones/Moselle), Truth Taylor (So., Jim Hill/Jackson) and Daphane White (So., St. Martin/Gulfport).

White grabbed 13 rebounds and narrowly missed a third double-double.

Taylor and Whitney Johnson (So., Gulfport/Gulfport) also had six rebounds.

Gulf Coast never trailed in the game and pulled out to a 29-20 halftime lead. The Bulldogs saw Delta (1-4) make a run in the third quarter, but they held off the Trojans.

"We were a little fatigued," Adams said. "Daphane said she didn't have any legs, but we were able to pull together a win."

Gulf Coast plays at Coastal Alabama-South on Thursday, with tipoff set for 5:30 p.m. The Bulldogs return home Nov. 23 when Delgado visits the Weathers-Wentzell Center at 2 p.m.
