The first conference game in school history for the Moberly Area Community College women’s basketball program turned out to be a memorable one for the Greyhound Women as they defeated St. Louis Community College by a score of 74-54 on Tuesday night in Missouri Community College Athletic Conference play.

MACC led 29-24 at halftime as Brianna Perry and Nia Flowers led the way offensively with nine and seven points. Romekia Wallace helped the Greyhound Women stretch their advantage in the third quarter as she scored eight points and MACC took a 12 point, 49-37, lead into the final quarter of action.

Wallace continued to give MACC an offensive boost over the final 10 minutes as she scored nine points and the Greyhound Women connected on four three point field goals. Perry knocked down two trifectas and Carnethia Brown and Shauna Rinehart hit one each, as MACC scored 25 points in the fourth and enjoyed their largest offensive output in a half, with 45 points, since returning from Christmas Break.

“I really think our travel took a toll on us on Saturday night,” said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. “We took Sunday off, after getting back pretty late, and I think that day of rest helped us tonight. We generally have two days of preparation before most of our single games, but we were able to wear them down over the course of 40 minutes and our depth played a role in that.”

Wallace and Perry scored 19 points apiece to lead the Greyhound Women, who shot 47 percent from the field and outrebounded St. Louis 49-31. The visiting Archers shot just 25 percent from the field and were five of 25 from three point range.

Wallace recorded her fourth double-double of the season as she grabbed a game high 13 rebounds. Perry also contributed four assists and four rebounds, while Carnethia Brown joined them in double figures with 11 points, she also had four rebounds and three assists. Flowers finished with seven points, three assists, and three steals, and Lunden Henry and Angelica Wiggins both notched six rebounds and four assists.

MACC will open NJCAA Region 16 play this Saturday as they host Three Rivers Community College in a double header with the men’s program. Tip-off for the women’s contest is set for 5:00 p.m.
