Coahoma Fans Cheer Perfect Homecoming With Two Victories Over Rival Hinds Utica

7/09/14

CLARKSDALE – For hometown sports fans, Basketball Homecoming at Coahoma Community College was perfect - sunny skies following a week of cold, grey days plus alumni reunions and two victories over arch rival Hinds Utica.

CCC’s Lady Tigers defeated the Lady Bulldogs 68-62, and the Tigers won 70-58 over the Hinds Bulldogs.

Coahoma seniors Bridgette Griffin of Lambert and Alex Thompson of Jackson were crowned Mr. and Miss Basketball between the two games.

Inducted into Coahoma’s Sports Hall of Fame were former Tiger football coach Oree Banks of Charleston, West Virginia; and basketball standouts: Lucille Seaberry Moore of Cleveland, and Charles Jones of Helena, Ark., a native of Friars Point.

CCC’s Krystal Pearson electrified the opening crowd with an instant triple, and the Lady Tigers continued to forge ahead until Lady Bulldog Mozetta Greenwood tied the game at 10 with Lady Tiger Jasmine Brown sinking a trey answered immediately by Shelley Griffith’s three pointer to tie at 13.

Treys from both teams swished the net and with less than five minutes remaining in the first half, Quin’meka Shaw hit a basket to bring Hinds within two points of Coahoma. (24-22).

Energetic rebounding by CCC’s Antoinette Mayfield fed Breanna Wiley’s scoring (27-22), and the Lady Tigers led at halftime 32-24.

Returning for the second period, an energized Lady Bulldog team displayed the fine art of stealing and scored six unanswered points to catch up almost with CCC (32-30).

Morphing into a scoring machine, Lady Tiger Breanna Wiley hit five consecutive free throws (37-30) before Greenwood made one point for Hinds.

Successful shooting by both teams produced a 44 tie with nine minutes left when the precision teamwork of Wiley and Griffin produced 57 CCC points to 49 for Hinds. A triple by Shaw reduced the Lady Bulldog deficit (59-57).

Free throws by Jasmine Brown and Krystal Pearson and a goal by Wiley put Coahoma’s victory in the bank.

Leading the scoring for CCC was Wiley with 25 points with 13 for Griffin, and 12 for Brown. Others scoring were Pearson, 7; Nekeia Evans, 5; Azande Colier and Tamora Shelton, 2 each.

Top scorers for Hinds were Shaw with 19 points; Greenwood, 14; Shelley Griffith, 12; T. Harris, 7; R. McDonald, 4; L. Mitchell, 3; L. Richmond, 2; and V. Dampier, 1.

Although Bulldog Marcus Hurn opened the second game with a pair of free throws, Coahoma responded with a slam by Alan Morris via a pass by Rigueson Desorvil who left his signature seconds later on a triple (6-2).

CCC’s Alex Thompson joined the scoring (10-4) that became a feeding frenzy with Desorvil, Thompson, and Charles Nash adding eight unanswered points (18-4) before Bulldogs J. Gaskin and G. Allen scored twice. (18-8).

A triple by Thompson catapulted Coahoma into a 26-9 lead with seven minutes remaining in the first half, and a three-pointer by Dominique Brown elevated the Bulldogs into two digit territory (28-12).

Swishing six consecutive points into the basket for Coahoma were Desorvil, Jonathan Ankston, and Alex Thompson (34-14) before Hinds began fine-tuning its aim, and the halftime score was 36-23.

A pass from CCC’s Morris to Carson Darcee for two points opened the second half, and the number kept growing to 11 more points (47-23) until Bulldogs Hurns and Carlo McDonald hit back-to-back treys. (47-32).

CCC’s Stacy Regular and Stanley Haywood unleashed triples in a row (55-37); the game tempo picked up a beat as the game announcer reported, “The tackle was made by ….”

With leading Bulldog scorer M. Hurn nailing two three-pointers, Coahoma led 61-49 with 6:20 remaining, and the game moved into fouls and free throw territory.

Hinds remained locked on 55 points while CCC (63-55) advanced six points via free throws (69-55) at 1.56 minutes remaining, and the final buzzer approaching.

Leading the scoring for Coahoma was Desorvil with 15 points followed by Brown with 11; Alex Thompson and Darcee, 10 each; A. Morris, 8; Regular and Haywood , 3 each; A. Alexander, Telvin Askew, C. Nash, and Norris Adams, 2 each.

With 21 points, M. Hurn led the scoring for Hinds followed by C. McDonald with 14; D. Brown with 9; D. Mayers and J. Gray with 3 each; G. Lee, M. Hurn, T. Cunningham, and G. Allen with 2 each.

Coahoma’s next home game is Tuesday, Jan. 22 with Northeast.
