ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - Thursday night's 'Catfight' in Ellisville produced everything worthy of a high-stakes basketball game. Pearl River Community College, mere seconds away from a three-point loss, instead hung on for a 83-79 double-overtime win over Jones County Junior College.
The Wildcats (14-1, 5-0) had a prayer answered with a bank-in, 25 ft jump shot to force the first overtime. With the win, the Wildcats take control of first place in the South Division, while the Bobcats (12-3, 4-1) suffer their first loss in the division, and fall to second place.
The two will meet again Feb. 18.
