FULTON, Miss.-- Freshman Tyler Brunson and KeDorian Sullivan both scored 19 points apiece in last night’s north division match-up against the Indians but it wasn’t enough as the Tigers fell 68-64 in Fulton.
Deontaye Ewing led ICC with 19 points followed by 15 points by Jonathan McGee to help first year head coach Grant Pate to his first MACJC divisional win in front of a large crowd at the Davis Event Center.

Turnovers proved to be the key in the contest with Northeast turning the ball over 23 times while Itawamba limited their turnovers to just 12 on the night.

With the loss Northeast drops to 3-4 overall and 0-1 in the north division while the Indians moved to 5-3, 1-0, respectively.

In the opener Coach Alexander’s team played a hard fought first half trailing by one point at intermission 33-32, but ICC pulled away in the second frame to win 80-55..

However, in the second frame the Lady Tigers had a hard time getting things going from the floor shooting just 9-of-25 for 36-percent while the Lady Indians hit on 18-for-31 for 58-percent.

Rosedale freshman LaTonya Gadison had another solid performance for Northeast leading the way with 16 points and four boards followed by nine points and eight rebounds by freshman Talisa Boyd.

Top performers for ICC were Ty-Nita Baker with 21 points, Latoya Collins had 17, Ayanna Lynn added 15, while LyTia Coleman finished with 12.

Up next for Northeast will be Northwest Mississippi Community College at Bonner Arnold Coliseum for another north division match-up.
