The Motlow Lady Bucks continued to use the balanced scoring formula successfully Tuesday night when they hosted and beat the Northeast Mississippi Lady Tigers 72-62 at Copperweld Arena. Motlow had four players score in double figures.
The Lady Bucks (6-4, 3-2) will take a week off for the Thanksgiving holiday before resuming play on Wednesday, Dec. 2, with a trip to Pulaski and a contest against non-conference Martin Methodist College JV. Motlow doesn't play another home game until Jan. 11, 2016.
The home team rode an early 3-pointer by Camecia Graham and a pair of buckets from Shakala Griffin to stake a 15-11 lead after one quarter. The Lady Bucks extended that lead to 31-22 at halftime, then blew the game open 51-36 after three quarters.
After the Lady Bucks stretched the lead to 23 points with seven minutes left to play, the visitors took advantage of Motlow turnovers to pull within 10 on the final scoreboard. The visitors won the rebounding battle 45-38 and each team had 16 steals.
