Meridian defeats the Wolves in Wesson

 MG 3056

February 22, 2017

WESSON – The Wolves were unable to defeat Meridian at home Monday night as the Eagles shot lights out. The 84-74 loss moves the Wolves to 10-12 on the year and 4-9 in the MACJC South Division. Co-Lin travels to Poplarville Thursday, Feb. 23 to play Pearl River for the final game of the season. The game is set to start at 7:30 p.m. Listen to the action live at colinathletics.com or WMJU 104.3 FM in Brookhaven.

 

“This was a really bad loss for us,” said head coach Kenny Bizot. “I’ve looked really hard into why we keep getting off to such rough starts, and my only answer is simply that we aren’t shooting the ball well…credit Meridian on making shot after shot tonight. It’s just hard to come back from that.”

Co-Lin never seemed in control of the game as the Eagles climbed to an eight-point lead in first four minutes of action Monday night. Freshman Lamarcus Lee led the Wolves on a brief comeback. The 12-2 run gave the Wolves their first lead of the game with 9:55 remaining in the half.

Action was back and forth until Meridian went on a scoring run and took a nine-point lead into the half.

The Eagles lead grew early in the second half and stretched to as much as 17 with 16:06 left in the contest.

The Wolves made several small runs in an effort to cut the Eagles lead but all fell short as Meridian quickly recovered and pulled the lead back to double digits.

Lee led the Wolves with 26 points in the game. The freshman also had six rebounds and five assists. Anthony Jones, a Wesson native, came off the bench and scored 17 for the Wolves and grabbed five rebounds. Jonathan “Biscuit” Floyd scored 15 for Co-Lin and Youry White led the team with 12 rebounds.

Mike Woodard led the Eagles with 20 points, while Johnny Knox added 17.

Co-Lin shot 38 percent (24-for-63) from the field, 43 percent (9-for-21) from three-point range, and 68 percent (17-of-25) from the free throw line. The Wolves brought down 40 rebounds. Meridian shot 56 percent (30-for-54) from the field, 54 percent (7-for-13) from three-point range, and 61 percent (17-for-28) from the foul line. The Eagles posted 40 rebounds.
