Trojans Split With Tigers

Mississippi Delta Community College split a pair of games with Coahoma Community College Monday night in Moorhead when the Lady Trojans defeated the Lady Tigers 77-63 while the Trojans dropped their game 72-69 to the Tigers.

The first few minutes of the women's matchup was a se-saw affair with Mississippi Delta leading most of the way. The Lady Tigers tied the game at 11-all at the 9:29 mark but that was the last time they would see the lead in the game. The first half ended with the Lady Trojans up 30-24.

Delta opened the second half with a spurt that saw their lead expand to 16 points in the first three minutes. MDCC pushed that lead to as many as 17 points, 62-45, on a three-pointer by freshman guard Aqueshia Kimble with 5:40 remaining and never dropped it below double figures in the second stanza.

Kimble and sophomore guard Krystal Nailer led the Delta women in scoring with 16 points each and Nailer recorded a double/double with 10 rebounds while sophomore forward Ashanti Spencer scored 14 points. In all, 11 of the team's 13 players scored points in the game.

The win raises the Lady Trojans to 7-2 in the North Division and brings them to 12-7 overall.

In game two, the Trojans seemed to have everything under control, especially in the first half which they lead the entire way ending with a 36-29 lead. At one point Delta led by 14 points, 22-8.

But, the Tigers kept chipping away and finally took a one point lead, 56-55, on one of their 10 three-pointers of the game at the 9:40 mark. The Trojans rebounded and pulled out to a four point lead, 69-65, with 1:50 remaining but were then outscored 7-0 to end the game down by three. A three point shot by Delta to tie the game at the buzzer fell short.

Sophomore center James Evans led MDCC in scoring with 15 points and earned a double/double with 10 rebounds. He was followed in double figures by sophomore Marquarius Boddie with 12 points, Kel'Drek Young with 11 points and Johnny Rucker with 10 points. CCC's Billy Jackson led the game with 24 points while Robert Jordan added 15.

The loss drops the Trojans to 2-7 in North Division play and 8-12 overall. MDCC will be on the road Thursday night at Northwest Community College in Senatobia with games at 5 & 7 p.m.

MDCC Falls To East Mississippi

The Mississippi Delta Community College basketball teams suffered twin defeats Thursday night against East Mississippi Community College at Scooba with the Lady Trojans falling 77-66 and the Trojans losing 86-45.

The EMCC Lady Lions went on an 11-0 run to open the game but the Delta women fought back to tie the game at 19-all. The Lady Trojans took a three point lead, 25-22, at the 6:10 mark but that was soon erased by one of seven three point baskets for the Lady Lions.

The East Mississippi women led by one point, 34-33, at the break and that’s as close as the Lady Trojans would come for the remainder of the game. Sophomore guard Krystal Nailer led MDCC in scoring with 16 points. She was followed by freshman guard Aqueshia Kimble with 14 points, sophomore forward Ashanti Spencer with 13 points and freshman forward Niya Head with 12 points.

The loss drops the Lady Trojans to 6-2 in the North Division and drops them out of the three-way tie for first place in the division race. They also fall to 11-7 overall.

The Trojans, who defeated the Lions 76-74 in their first encounter of the year, ran into a buzz saw at Scooba. The revenge-minded Lions scored big (seven treys in the first half) and often and had opened up a 31 point lead, 47-16, at the 2:10 mark in the first half. The half ended with EMCC up 47-21.

Tings only got worse in the second half as the Lions pushed out to as much as a 42 point lead at one point before ending the game up by 41 points. Only two Trojans, freshman forward Kel’Drek Young (11) and sophomore guard Marquarius Boddie (10) ended the game in double figures.

The loss drops the Trojans to 2-6 in North Division play and 8-11 overall. The Trojans and Lady Trojans will be at home Monday night as they welcome their counterparts from Coahoma Community College to the J.T. Hall Coliseum. Games begin at 6 and 8 p.m.

MDCC Sweeps Holmes CC

The Mississippi Delta Community College Trojans and Lady Trojans pulled off another North Division sweep Monday night at home as the women defeated the Lady Bulldogs 78-55 and the men edged their Holmes counterparts 65-61.

The Lady Trojans were ice cold in the early goings of the first half and soon found themselves in a six point hole before the ball started dropping. After that, it took six minutes to gain the lead and another three minutes to race out to a 15 point, 27-12 lead following a 13-0 run that included seven points by freshman guard Kalesha Williams and five points by sophomore guard Krystal Nailer.

The half ended with the Lady Trojans on top by nine points, 32-23 and the Lady Trojans opened the second half with a 14-4 run that put them up by 22 points, 54-32, at the 12 minute mark.

Delta put it in cruise control for the rest of the game leading by as much as 23 points while never letting the lead slip below 16 points. Nailer led the game in scoring with 24 points going 9/11 from the floor and 6/8 from the free throw line. She was followed by Williams with 14 points, and Mary Washington with 13 points. In all, 11 of the 13 players who saw action put points on the board.

The win brings the Lady Trojans to 6-1 in North Division play and 11-6 overall and still tied for first place in division play.

The Trojans didn’t have as easy a time with the Bulldogs and trailed all by a couple of minutes of the first half. Delta trailed by as many as eight points, at the 5:36 mark, but fought back to take a three point lead, 32-29, into the locker room at the break.

MDCC maintained their lead all throughout the second half leading by as many as eight points, 46-38, in the early going. But, the Dogs fought back to tie the game at 59-all with 1:44 remaining on the clock.

A bucket, and one, by freshman point guard Anthony Mabon gave the Trojans the lead again and the Bulldogs missed a three-pointer with three seconds left in the game that would have tied it all up again.

Sophomore guard Marquarius Boddie led the game in scoring with 16 points while sophomore guard Johnny Rucker recorded a double/double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. The win moves the Trojans to 2-5 in the North Division and 8-10 overall.

Mississippi Delta will be on the road Thursday in Scooba as they travel to East Mississippi Community College for games at 5:30 and 7:30.

Lady Trojans Regain Share of First Place

The Mississippi Delta Community College Lady Trojans went back to their winning way Monday night defeating the Northeast Community College Lady Tigers 76-72 at Booneville while the Trojans dropped another close contest 77-76 in OT.

The women’s matchup was a close game for almost the entire contest with the lead changing hands five times in the first half and another five times in the second half. The Delta women took the largest lead in the first stanza, 28-22, but the first half ended with the Lady Tigers up 32-28 following a 10-0 run.

The Lady Trojans battled back from that 10 point deficit to take a one point lead, 43-42, on the strength of a three-point shot by freshman guard Kalesha Williams at the 12:32 mark and took the lead for good at the 11:15 mark when freshman guard Aqueshia Kimble sank a pair of free throws from the charity stripe. MDCC took its longest lead of the night, 71-63, with 1:26 remaining when Kimble made two more free throws courtesy of a technical foul called on the Tigers’ coach.

Kimble led the game in scoring with an outstanding 27 points going 8/9 from the floor and hitting 11/12 free throws. She was followed in double figures by sophomore forward Ashanti Spencer with 13 points and Kalesha Williams with 11 points. In all, eight of the nine Lady Trojans who saw action scored points.

The win puts the Lady Trojans at 5-1 in the North Division (10-6 overall) and leaves them in a three way tie with East Mississippi CC and Itawamba CC at the end of the first round of division play. Round two for the Deltans kicks off Monday, February 3, at Moorhead when Holmes Community College comes to visit.

The Trojans and the Tigers spared for the first five minutes of their game Monday night before Delta caught first and ended the half up by 16 points, 40-24.

That lead held until the 8:25 mark of the game when the Tigers drained the third of their eight three point buckets for the half and tied the game at 58. The final eight minutes was a tit-for-tat struggle in which neither team could gain more than a five point advantage.

The Trojans held a one point lead, courtesy of two free throws by freshman forward Anthony Maben with 13 seconds remaining, when they sent the Tigers to the line for two shots with one tick left on the clock. Northeast made one of the two shots to send the game into overtime.

In OT the Trojans pulled out to a five point lead, 87-82 with 2:43 remaining, but Northeast again tied the game with two free throws at the 2:12 mark. Neither team could score, and in their final possession the Tigers ran the clock down to seven seconds before being fouled. They made one of two free throws and the Trojans were unable to score in the final seconds.

Marquarius Boddie was co-leading scorer in the game with 22 points and was followed in double figures by James Evans with 17 points and Johnny Rucker with 14 points. The loss drops MDCC to 1-5 in the North Division and 7-10 overall.

Mississippi Delta has the rest of the week off and will return to action Monday night as they host Holmes Community College in Moorhead at 6 and 8 p.m.
