Taller Gulf Coast prepares for Co-Lin

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast will try to improve to 2-0 in division when the Bulldogs travel Thursday to play Copiah-Lincoln.

Gulf Coast will have a distinct height advantage against the Wolves, who start four guards 6-foot-2 and under. The test will be whether tall can stop quick. 

Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The game will be streamed at https://www.colinathletics.com/general/live_stream.

Quotable

"One of the big keys tomorrow night is making these guys pay 5-on-5. They're small, but they're very, very quick. They get the ball up and down the floor very quickly and attack the rim. If we're going to be successful, we have to slow that down and stop that." – Coach Wendell Weathers.
