Gulf Coast falls at Bishop State

Bishop State defeated the Mississippi Gulf Coast Lady Bulldogs 74-71 Monday night in Mobile.


Azaria Howard (So., Richland/Richland) led Gulf Coast with 14 points and had six rebounds. Shelli Thigpen (So., Wylie, Texas/Wylie) had 11 points and seven assists.


"Our shooters just really couldn't find their rhythm," Gulf Coast coach Hope Adams said. "We played really hard, but we came up short."
