 MG 0883

February 6, 2017

PERKINSTON – The Copiah-Lincoln Community College Wolves suffered a 74-63 loss Monday night to the Bulldogs of Mississippi Gulf Coast. The loss moves the Wolves to 9-9 on the season and 3-6 in the MACJC South Division. Co-Lin takes the floor again Thursday, Feb. 9 as the Wolves travel to Utica to face Hinds. Listen to the game live at colinathletics.com or WMJU 104.3 FM in Brookhaven.

“We just could not shoot the basketball tonight,” said head coach Kenny Bizot.  “We weren’t scoring consistently, and we didn’t have a flow to our offensive. That’s something we have to have with this team…we just weren’t ourselves.”

In the first half the Wolves struggled finding points, as the three-pointers were not falling. Co-Lin found some success in driving to the basket, but the opportunities were slim. After trailing by six early, the Wolves cut Gulf Coast’s lead to just one midway through the half. The Bulldogs scored three straight to regain a seven-point lead just one minute later. Co-Lin refused to stop battling and once again cut into the lead before tying the game at 29 with 3:24 remaining. Gulf Coast took a six-point lead into intermission.

The Bulldogs continued to hit the three-pointers throughout the second half of play as Gulf Coast stretched their lead to as many as 22. Co-Lin was simply unable to overcome the impressive shooting.

Jonathan Floyd led Co-Lin with 15 points, while Anthony Jones came of the bench and netted 14. Youry White finished the night 11 points and 13 rebounds to record a double-double. Lamarcus Lee finished with seven points and six rebounds.

Winston Morgan led the Bulldogs in scoring with 23. Tedrian Brisco added 16, while Zach Parker put in 13.

Co-Lin shot 34 percent (24-for-66) from the field, 20 percent (5-for-25) from three-point range, and 67 percent (10-of-15) from the free throw line. The Wolves brought down 39 rebounds. Gulf Coast shot 45 percent (26-for-58) from the field, 46 percent (12-for-26) from three-point range, and 56 percent (10-for-18) from the foul line. The Bulldogs posted 43 rebounds.
