MOBILE - A close game at halftime turned into a blowout for the Copiah-Lincoln Lady Wolves on Thursday night at Bishop State Community College in Mobile. The Lady Wolves only led 25-20 over the Lady Wildcats at the break, but held Bishop State to 10 second half points in a 58-30 victory. The Lady Wolves (3-2) started the game sluggishly after the long bus trip to Mobile. Although they never trailed in the game, Co-Lin gave up a 3-pointer just before halftime that cut their lead to five. Coach Gwyn Young saw his team create turnover after turnover via their full-court pressure in the second half and steadily push the lead out past 20 points.

Co-Lin was led in scoring by Claresa Banks with 16 points. Freshman forward Brittany McDuffey scored eight points off the bench.

Imani Kirksey was the top scorer for Bishop State (1-3) with 12 points off the bench.

The Lady Wolves will be off from game action during the week of Thanksgiving. Co-Lin returns to play on Monday, Dec. 2 at home as they host Mississippi Delta. The women tip at 6:00 p.m. with the men’s game to follow. Both games will be streamed live at or listen at WMJU 104.3 FM in Brookhaven.
