Coahoma Wins Two Significant Games Over Holmes

4/18/14

CLARKSDALE – A Saturday night make-up game with Holmes produced two significant victories for Coahoma with the Lady Tigers claiming a 71-64 overtime win, and the Tigers defeating the Bulldogs 75-68.

“This is the first time we’ve defeated Homes in Clarksdale since I’ve been coaching at CCC, and this was our first conference win this year,” commented Lady Tiger Coach LaCole Brooks.

Asked the reason for their 180-degree turnaround following a lackluster loss to Northeast Tuesday, the team replied from the locker room in unison, “working together.”

Praising his team’s intense, consistent play, Tiger Coach Ira Peterson defined the Holmes victory as “a big win,” and the team’s third conference victory.

Although the Lady Tigers and Lady Bulldogs were evenly matched, a three-pointer by Jasmine Brown catapulted CCC ahead 61-55 with 1.20 minutes remaining in the game when the Lady Bulldogs scored two more baskets and two free throws to tie at 61.

With 11 seconds in the game, Coahoma’s Breanna Wiley appeared frozen handling the ball, and Coach Brooks later said, “She thought there was one second only left and OT was automatic.”

However, in OT, Lady Tiger Tamora Shelton broke the tie immediately, followed by Bridgette Griffin’s basket and another two points by Shelton (67-61.)

Lady Bulldog Tamia Grady added three free throws for Holmes (67-64), and with .32 seconds remaining Jasmine Brown scored to cement the win.

In the first half of regulation play, the two teams tied at 9, 13, and 24 before Holmes went up 30-29 at halftime.

With the pattern continuing in the second period, Jasmine Brown nailed one triple followed by a near-triple to advance CCC 51-47 when Holmes added three free throws to tie at 51.

Lady Tiger Antoinette Mayfield and Tamora Shelton scored five points for CCC, and Grady and Jessica Miles added three for Holmes before the finale ending.

Scoring for Coahoma were Griffin with 19 points; Brown with 17; Shelton, 10; Mayfield, 9; Wiley, 8; Krystal Pearson, 6; and Azanda Collier, 2.

Leading the scoring for Holmes were Grady with 26 points; D. Dillard, 9; Miles and Karla Levy, 8 each; Dasha Adams, 7; Krystal Baker, 4; and Jasmine Edwards, 2.

CCC sharpshooter Stacy Regular opened the second game with his signature – a three-point basket, and the Tigers mounted a scoring barrage with points by Alan Morris, Patrick Brown, Rigueson Desorvil, and a Brown triple to lead 15 -4.

Seven unanswered points by DeAndrew Scott, Daveon Slaughter, and a triple by Cody James advanced the Bulldogs to 11 before CCC’s Alex Thompson and Jonathan Ankston swished baskets.

With Coahoma leading 13 points (31-18), (34-21), and (37-24), Bulldog Daniel Francis sank a three-point goal (37-27). However Patrick Brown answered immediately with a trey (40-27), and at halftime, the Tigers were ahead 42-27.

Bulldog Demarcus Lewis and Scott opened the second period with hot hands and reduced the Holmes deficit 45-38 until CCC’s Alex Thompson’s slam dunk (49-38) resounded in the Pinnacle and was followed by a long distance three-pointer by Ankston (53-42).

A trey by Okoye Riley moved Holmes within six points of the Tigers (53-47), and the scoring rocked along with Coahoma maintaining a 10-point lead.

With 1:15 seconds remaining, Scott scored a three-point basket (72-66) for Holmes; Ankston and Thompson hit three free throws for CCC, and time ran out.

Leading the scoring for Coahoma was Ankston with 15 points; Thompson, 14; Brown and Desorvil, 11 each; Alan Morris, 10; Tavin Askew and Darcee Carson, 4 each; Regular, 3; Stanley Haywood, 2; and Morris Adams, 1.

Scoring for Holmes were Scott with 18 points; Lewis, 11; Tamarico Wilson and Okoye Riley, 9 each; Francis, Kelvin Smith, and Slaughter, 4 each; James, 3; Donnell Nicholas and Enitial Rucker, 2 each; and Travis Johnson, 1.

The Coahoma Tiger teams travel to East Mississippi Monday, Jan. 28, and will return home Thursday, Jan. 31, to play Northwest.
