Lady Bulldogs return home for 2

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast plays the first of its final two home games of the 2017 portion of the women's basketball schedule Wednesday when Delgado visits the Weathers/Wentzell Center.


First-year head coach Hope Adams sees her team making progress but with room to improve.


"We're still growing," she said. "We just have to get more consistent. I think we can be more aggressive, and we have to take care of the ball. Our biggest struggle right now is a bunch of unforced turnovers."


The Lady Bulldogs (4-3) tip off with the Lady Dolphins (1-7) at 5:30 p.m. They play again Saturday when Baton Rouge visits at 3 p.m.


Gulf Coast defeated Baton Rouge 66-54 in the team's first meeting in the first week of the season. The Lady Bulldogs pounded Delgado 54-19 last Thursday in New Orleans, scoring the first 22 points of the game.


MGCCC opened MACJC South play Monday night with a trip to Hinds, falling 74-66 in Utica.


"It hurt when we lost," Adams said. "That's the competitive nature. I told (Assistant Coach Stacy Malone) when we got on the bus, I feel good in our first year we're moving. Last year, this game was a double-digit margin."
