PC entered the second half of conference play with a home opener against
Jacksonville College and came out with a 78-62 win.
What seemed to be a repeat of the first time around, PC easily took the
victory from the Jaguars for the second time this season. The Fillies are
now sitting at 7-4 in conference and 16-5 overall.
From the jump, Panola had control of the game. The closest Jacksonville
would get was within 1 after their first basket, but the Fillies pulled
away quickly. The Fillies outscored Jacksonville every quarter and caused
20 turnovers playing solid defense and shooting 45% on the night.
Sophomores Genesis Rivera and Denasia Watson both had perfect games from
the field. Rivera would shoot 5-5 with 2 three's, while Watson went 3-3
with 2 three's as well. Rivera finished the night with 18 points and 6
points, leading the Fillies. Freshman Patience Okpe added 14 and Sophomore
Charlynn Perry added 13. This is the 14th game this season that the Fillies
have had 3 or more score in double figures.
The next game will be on February 1st, at 5:30 against Angelina in Lufkin,
TX. The last time the two teams met, the Fillies won 97-85.
