ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Jones County Junior College will head into the new year unscathed.

The No. 25 Bobcats remain undefeated after beating Coahoma 90-73 on Monday night. JCJC won’t return to action until January 9, 2017 when it hosts Southern-Shreveport.

JCJC (9-0) was led by Bruce Stevens of Bay Springs who had 18 points while Laurel’s Rickey Holden tallied 14 points.

The Bobcats had five players score in double figures.

"When you have as many players as I think that we do, I think if you keep the pressure on them it gives more guys opportunities to play,” said Jones County head coach Rahim Lockhart. “It also wears down the other team's starters and they're better players’ legs. We have ten compared to other teams who may have six, seven or eight. I think every one every year, their goal is to win their last game. No one wants to finish their season a loser. I think every year we want championships. This year I think we have one of those teams that has a feasible opportunity to make a run at the championship."

Jones County hung its last NJCAA Division I Championship banner in 2014.
