Guards pave the way for road win

Guards pave the way for road win

Two guards led the way for Mississippi Gulf Coast on Thursday in Wesson, as the Bulldogs pulled away from Copiah-Lincoln 75-59 with another strong defensive effort.

 

Point guard LaRaymond Spivery (So., Lucedale /George County) had 16 points, and Dillyn Neely (Fr., Biloxi/Biloxi) hit four 3-pointers off the bench on the way to 14.

 

"We played really, really well on the defensive end," Gulf Coast coach Wendell Weathers said. "We had to keep them in front of us and keep them out of the lane, and we did a pretty good job of that all night long."

 

Spivery helped keep the smaller Co-Lin guards in check in addition to his offensive performance.

 

"He's probably the key to what we do," Weathers said. "When he's rock solid, then we're rock solid. That's what it amounts to."

 

Gulf Coast (10-1, 2-0 MACJC South) lost both games against Co-Lin (7-4, 1-1) last season. Neely helped make sure that didn't happen again.

 

"He's a difference maker in what we do," Weathers said. "It's hard for you to go zone on us to shut us down inside when he's on the outside. We're not one-dimensional like we've been in the past. We're pretty multi-faceted right now, and hopefully, we'll just get better."

 

DaJuan Moorer (So., Pensacola, Fla./Pensacola Catholic) had 12 points for the Bulldogs, and Tafari Simms (Fr., Hamilton, Ontario/Lincoln Prep) added 10.

 

Gulf Coast returns to action Monday with a trip to Southwest. Tipoff in Summit is at 5:30 p.m.
