PRCC advances, JCJC ousted from region tournament

CLINTON, MS (WDAM) -

The Pearl River Community College men's basketball team is moving on by the skin of their teeth, while their rivals down I-59 are headed home. Jones County Junior College only trailed by six at the half to Northwest Community College, but could never gain enough steam to change things in the second half.

The Bobcats fell 83-68, while the Wildcats, thanks to two free throws from Xavian Rimner with :14 seconds left, held on to win 64-62 over Southern University of Shreveport.

"It was an ugly game, and I didn't think it was very well played by either team, but they were a bad matchup for us," said PRCC head man Richard Mathis after the win, "I don't want to complain too much, because we're going on the second round, and that's what we're trying to do.

"We're trying to win the next game and maybe the next game, and see if we can't make the national tournament."

PRCC and Northwest will meet at 2:30 on Friday in the Region 23 semi-final.
