PRCC dominates, JCJC falls in final seconds

There will be no PRCC-JCJC rematch for the MACJC tournament championship this season. In round one, Pearl River Community College dominated Coahoma Community College, while Jones County Junior College allowed a corner three-ball with :05 seconds left and lost to third-seeded Mississippi Delta 71-68 Tuesday afternoon.

The Bobcats, down 13 in the second half, came all the way back and took a 68-66 lead with under a minute and half to play. Delta's Jaimiason Hadley connected from the free-throw line to tie things up at 68 with :54 seconds left, and after the Bobcats missed a few chances from inside the paint, the Trojans' Nathaniel Watkins hit his first three of the ball game as time was running out, and gave his team a win over second-seeded JCJC.

The Wildcats, meanwhile, had no problem dispatching Coahoma 85-61, and will play Northwest Mississippi Wednesday at 7:00 pm.
