The Moberly Area Community College women's basketball improved to 5-0 on the season with a pair of victories in the Lady Greyhound Classic held at the Fitzsimmons-John Arena this past weekend.

On Saturday the Lady Greyhounds turned a 10 point, 37-27, halftime lead into a 38 point victory with a decisive third quarter performance.

MACC connected on 11 of 19 field goal attempts, including a blistering four of six from the three point line, and also converted all seven of their free throw attempts in the third quarter. The Lady Greyhounds outscored Rend Lake 33-9 in the process to take a commanding 70-36 advantage heading into the final quarter of play.

Thirteen players reached the scoring column for MACC as they won by a final score of 90-52. Sophomore Nia Flowers led the way with 18 points, knocking down four three pointers, while freshman Angelica Wiggins came off the bench to tally 16 points, making three trifectas off her own. Flowers added four rebounds and three assists to her stat line.

Carnethia Brown turned in a solid all-around performance as well as she scored 11 points, grabbed four rebounds, dished out three assists, and notched four steals. Brianna Perry and Anna Stewart scored eight points each, while Tinon Hunter recorded a team high seven rebounds. Alisha Vinson had five rebounds and four blocked shots.

The Greyhound women shot just under 50 percent from the field in the contest, while making 10 of 19 three point attempts and 16 of 19 free throws. MACC recorded 21 assists on 32 made field goals and outrebounded Rend Lake 43-32.

"We had some great ball movement throughout the game," said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. "When we take care of the ball, make the extra pass, and look to attack the paint we create a lot of good scoring opportunities for each other."

On Sunday the Greyhound Women hosted John Wood Community College and overcame a sloppy first half to earn a 68-57 win.

The teams were tied at 27 at halftime, but Perry connected on four three point field goals over the last six minutes of the third quarter and the first possession of the fourth quarter to give MACC a 51-40 lead.

The Greyhound Women led by as many as 17 points before settling for the 11 point margin of victory. "We didn't finish the game as strong as I would've liked," said Killinger. "We have to do a better job of managing a lead late in a game and that is something we will be able to work on and improve upon as the season progresses."

Perry led the offensive attack for MACC with 14 points, she also had four rebounds. Wiggins and Brown also reached double digits with 11 and 10 points. Brown added four assists. Anisha George scored eight points, grabbed six rebounds, and blocked five shots, while Hunter had seven points, seven rebounds, and four steals.

The Greyhound Women were outrebounded for the first time all season as John Wood held a 40-37 advantage in the rebounding category, but managed to shoot 44 percent from the field while limiting John Wood to just 36 percent shooting. “We work on rebounding every day,” said Killinger. “We understand how important rebounding is to our success and we will continue to address that as the season moves forward.”

MACC will travel to Quincy, Illinois this coming weekend to participate in the Town & Country Inn Suites Classic hosted by John Wood.
