MACJC All-States & team performances
The Mississippi Association of Community and Junior College (MACJC) has named two Co-Lin standout hoopster sophomores to its Second Team All-State after stellar seasons.
Carter, a Neville High School product led the Lady Wolves with 14.5 points per game, finishing the regular season with 334 points and a 42.2 shooting percentage from the floor. Along with her solid offensive play, Carter had 38 steals and 155 rebounds.
Davis, a Lawrence County High School graduate, started all 23 games for the Lady Wolves and scored 11.1 points per game on her way to 256 total points. Davis shot 45 percent on the year. Like Carter, Davis is not only explosive on the offensive end of the court, but left her mark on the defensive side as well, leading the Lady Wolves with 39 steals and pulling in the second-highest number of rebounds, with 166 off the boards.
The All-Staters had an opportunity to add to their resumes last week in NJCAA Region XXIII Tournament play at Mississippi College in Clinton. Although the Lady Wolves missed the MACJC State Tournament, the team earned a backdoor bid to the national regional. The tournament fields the winners of the first round of the MACJC State Tournament, th
e highest record of the Region XXIII team from Louisiana and the next three highest Region XXIII teams from Mississippi, which is how the Lady Wolves earned the nod.
Winners & Losers. So far in the new year, the Lady Wolves are outperforming Co-Lin men's teams in sports. In basketball, the Lady Wolves, in a less than stellar season with a 13-10 record, landed a bid to the NJCAA Region XIII Tournament as one of the three highest-ranking XXIII teams in Mississippi, even though they did not make the MACJC Tournament. Meanwhile, the men's hoopsters finished 7-16, with no post-season play.
