In a game featuring two teams with identical 16-2 records the Moberly Area Community College Greyhound Women came up on the short end of a 59-54 score against visiting Three Rivers Community College as they lost their first home game of the season.

MACC led 12-10 at the end of the first quarter as Anisha George scored eight points, but found themselves trailing 26-21 at halftime. George had 13 points at the break.

Both teams struggled to start the second half, but Three Rivers eventually built a 10 point, 31-21, lead with 7:22 remaining in the third quarter. However, the Greyhound Women used an 8-0 run to close to within two points at the 4:15 mark and trailed 38-37 at the end of the quarter.

Carnethia Brown connected on back to back baskets to begin the fourth quarter to give MACC a 41-38 lead, but a 10-3 run by Three Rivers allowed the visitors to take a 48-44 advantage. Brown then drilled a three point field goal to pull the Greyhound Women back to within a single point near the midway point of the quarter. Angelica Wiggins made two free throws as MACC took the lead, but Three Rivers managed to score the next two baskets to take a 53-50 lead with 2:33 remaining in the game.

The Greyhound Women got a basket by George with just 21.9 second remaining in the game to trail 56-54, however Three Rivers converted three out of four free throws to seal the five point win.

“Three Rivers came into the game with some positive momentum after winning at State Fair the previous day,” said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. “They have played in a lot of close games this season and while we had some opportunities late to try and get the game into overtime we just came up a little bit short.”

MACC came into the game shooting nearly 45 percent from the field on the season, but managed to shoot just 33 percent and made just one three point field goal after averaging five three’s per game in their previous 18 contests. Three Rivers shot 47 percent from the field, including two of 12 on three’s, and both teams were just 11 of 22 from the charity stripe. MACC held a 53-29 rebounding advantage.

“We had some breakdowns defensively throughout the game that led to some easy baskets for them,” said Killinger. “And, other than us just not shooting the ball as well as we normally do, that was the difference in the game.”

George recorded the first double-double of her career with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Brown also reached double figures with 13 points, she also added four rebounds and three assists. Wallace grabbed a team high 14 rebounds, while Wiggins finished with eight points, four assists, and and three rebounds. Tinon Hunter had six rebounds for MACC.
