Eleven Lady Jaguars broke into the scoring column in Jacksonville College's 57-43 win over Paris Junior College Wednesday in the first round of the Region XIV Championship Tournament, which is being played at UT-Tyler's Herrington Patriot Center.
Three of those ladies — sophomores, Deva'Nyar Workman, Yvonne Maosa and Christina Robinson — proved to be almost unstoppable, however.
With Workman scoring game high 20 points and Maosa adding 14, followed by Robinson with 10, the Lady Jag trio accounted for 77.2-percent of JC's total points.
The same three Lady Jags also dominated the rebounding department as well.
Workman shagged a game-best 14 boards, Maosa added 10 and Robinson hauled down six caroms as JC held a 45-20 rebounding edge over Paris.
As a team the Lady Jags pulled down 19 offensive boards to Paris' five, and as a result the Lady Jags came away with 17 second chance points while the Lady Dragons had nary a second opportunity tally.
JC head womens basketball coach Leasa Ailshie was pretty stoked at the way her team played.
“I think we did a lot of things well and a lot of our players got into the game and played a lot,” she said.
JC led 30-27 at intermission and went on to outscore the Lady Dragons in the final 20 minutes of play as well.
A layup by Maosa that came at the 3:48 mark of the opening period put JC in front 22-20, and the Lady Jags never relinquished that lead.
Paris led 16-10 at one point early in the contest, but the edge was a short lived one.
Rounding out the scoring for the Lady Jags was Ally Moore and Susan Agesen with five each, Bria Freeland with two and Shahd Abboud, who popped in a free throw.
Workman also had seven steals and two blocked shots.
The Lady Dragons (16-15) were led in scoring by Damya Toney and Maeghan Scott, with 10 apiece.
