Brianna Perry, a 5-9 guard from Alpharetta, Georgia, became the fourth member of the Moberly Area Community College women’s basketball program to reach 500 career points. Perry achieved the mark as the Lady Greyhounds defeated State Fair Community College 74-51 on Saturday night, clinching the Missouri Community College Athletic Conference championship in the process.
Over the course of two seasons Perry has started in all but one game for MACC. As a freshman she was the second leading scorer, averaging ten points per contest, on a team that posted a 23-8 record and appeared in the NJCAA Top 25 national poll near the middle of the season. She was named first team All-MCCAC for her effort and is currently among the top five scorers on this year’s team and is second on the team in three point field goals made.
“You couldn’t ask for a better kid than you will find in Bri,” said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. “She has done a great job for us over the past two seasons, not only on the court, but in the classroom as well. It’s not easy to play over the course of two seasons and only miss one start, but that is a great indication of the type of worker she is and the contribution that she has made to our program.”
In addition to her accomplishments on the basketball court, Perry has been recognized on the program’s Academic Honor Roll all three semesters that she has attended MACC and was named to the Dean’s List on one occasion.
