NE Mississippi 54
EMCC women 42
After trailing 25-17 at halftime and still down by eight points (36-28) midway through the second stanza, the EMCC women went on a 9-0 run over the next three minutes to grab their first lead of the game (37-36) on a Savannah Kimmons putback at the 7:25 mark. Kimmons, along with fellow freshman Charmane Tims (Clarkdale) and sophomore Dajah McCarty (Quitman) combined to score all 25 of EMCC’s second-half points on collective 11-of-17 field-goal shooting.
Unfortunately, the visitors could not sustain the momentum and faded away down the stretch.
Now 2-11 overall and 0-2 within the division, the Lions were led by Tims’ 12 points, including 11 in the second half coming on 3-of-5 3-point shooting. Kimmons followed with nine points — six in the second half on 3-of-4 shooting — to go along with her game-high 12 rebounds. All eight of McCarty’s points, on 4-of-5 field goals, came after the break.
