MDCC Improves to 2-0 With Wins Over Co-Lin

Both the Trojans and Lady Trojans of Mississippi Delta Community College scored significant victories Monday night at Moorhead against their opponents from Copiah-Lincoln Community College.

The Lady Trojans posted a 12 point win, 68-56, over what is traditionally one of the strongest women's teams in the state. Last year's Lady Wolves were the State Champs and winners of their second consecutive Region XXIII Championship and third consecutive South Division title.

It seemed that they would be equally as strong Monday night as they jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first two minutes of the game. But, the Lady Trojans regained their composure and reeled off seven unanswered points, three from sophomore forward Dominique Walker and four from sophomore forward Calmetta Greyer, to take a 7-6 lead with 14:28 left in the first half.

The Delta women never looked back from that point forward as they went on a tear, pushing their lead to 13 points on a basket by forward LaShunda Perkins and then to 15 points, 34-19, before taking a 34-21 lead into the locker room at the break.

The Lady Wolves opened the second half with a determined run and managed to cut Delta's lead to three points, 40-37, after five minutes, but that's as close as things would get. The Lady Trojans pushed their lead back out to 11 points in the next three minutes and maintained control of the game from that point on.

Calmetta Greyer led the Lady Trojans in scoring with 19 points while Dominique Walker was the only other Delta player in double figures with 11 points. The reason was that Coach Burnadette McDonald spread the playing time around giving all 12 Lady Trojans a chance to see action. The results, nine players scored points during the game.

Statistically, the MDCC women did not do well from the field or from beyond the arc, but they did manage to hit over 61 percent of their free throws and those 16 points proved to be the difference in the game.

In the men's game, the Wolves scored the first two points of the night, but it was all Mississippi Delta from that point on as the Trojans shot the lights out, 88-67, Monday night.

Delta took a double digit lead, 16-6, on the strength of a trey by sophomore guard Xzabian Ramiz with 13 minutes remaining in the first stanza and pushed that out to a 14 point lead, 34-20, at the 5:12 mark on a three by freshman guard Courtney Nixon before finishing the half up 39-30.

As in the women's game, the Wolves made a run to open the second half and cut the lead to six points, 40-34, before the Trojans warmed up. It was all over after that as MDCC took a 20 point lead, 61-41, on a bucket by sophomore forward Laquavis Cotton and lead by as many as 26 points, 61-83, on a field goal by freshman point guard Rashad Gaines.

Again, only two Trojans scored on double figures. LaQuavis Cotton pumped in 13 points while sophomore Andre Thomas followed with 11. But, as in the first game, Coach Derrick Fears played all 15 Trojans and 13 responded with points. Sophomore point guard Kwahmere Gredic also led the game with 10 assists.

The wins put both the Trojans and Lady Trojans at 2-0 overall. Both teams will be on the road for the first time Thursday night as they travel to Summit to take on the Bears and Lady Bears of Southwest Community College in another cross-divisional rivalry. Delta will be back home next Monday night, November 14, to host Pearl River Community College.
