Motlow College Athletic News

Lady Bucks look ahead after close contests last weekend

Jan. 20, 2015

The Motlow Lady Bucks continued to show improvement over the weekend despite dropping a pair of Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) contests on their annual road trip to west Tennessee.

The Lady Bucks (2-14, 1-8) went to Dyersburg on Friday and fell 68-59 to Dyersburg State, then traveled to Memphis on Saturday and came up short 80-75 to Southwest Tennessee. Both Motlow teams will continue conference play this weekend when they head to Gallatin to play Volunteer State. Tipoff for the women's contest is 2 p.m.

Friday night in Dyersburg the Lady Bucks only trailed by a point, 33-32, at halftime but were not able to overcome the Lady Eagles' lead.

Saturday afternoon in Memphis was similar in the first half as the Lady Bucks led the Lady Saluqis 32-30. Southwest Tennessee dominated the paint though, outrebounding Motlow 62-42. The game was marred by fouls, with the two teams combining to shoot 80 free throws. Each squad converted 27 of their attempts.

Sabrina Jackson led the Lady Bucks with 16 points and pulled down six rebounds with two blocked shots. Chelsea Holman came off the bench to score 15 for Motlow along with two steals. Lauren Brown scored 12 and had six rebounds, while Chloe Neil had 11 points, five rebounds and three assists.

Jadah Fite added eight points, five rebounds and three assists for Motlow, while Ashley Kee scored six points with three rebounds and two steals.

Volunteer State started the season winning five of its first six games but has lost six in a row since then, including falling to both Dyersburg State and Southwest Tennessee over the weekend.
