Jacksonville College women breeze to 87-point victory

JACKSONVILLE — Sharp-looking new uniforms and a new player — Deva'Nyar Workman — helped make the Jacksonville College Lady Jaguars' 115-28 shellacking of the East Texas Lady Flight even sweeter for JC fans on Thursday night at the Curtis Carroll Fieldhouse.

The JC women (7-7) closed out the non-conference portion of their schedule by earning their biggest win — the 87-point decision surpasses the Lady Jags' 66-point decision over the Lady Flight that occurred on Nov. 27 — of the year.

Workman, a highly decorated prep player out of Reading, Pa., saw limited duty in the 2010-11 before eventually being sidelined for medical reasons.

She made her season debut on Thursday by scoring 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field.

Workman also came away with six rebounds and quickly established herself as a primary force on both ends of the court.

Khadijah Carter, Region XIV's leading scorer (20 ppg.), wound up with a team high 19 points for the Lady Jags.

Carter was one of five JC women who finished in double figures on an evening that saw every young lady that dressed out for JC score at least two points.

Other double digit point makers for the winners were, Susan Agesen (15), Breanna Burford (12) and Yvonne Maosa (11).

Agesen also snagged nine rebounds for JC.

The Lady Jags led wire-to-wire with Agesen getting the JC ladies on the board first when she scored a deuce at the 19:27 mark, following a Lady Flight turnover.

The visitors turned the ball over a whopping 39 times in the game, while the Lady Jags committed just nine miscues.

The Lady Flight were held scoreless for an 11:19 span of the opening half and during the same time the Lady Jags were able to add 35 unanswered points to what was then just a six-point advantage.

JC led 63-13 at the break as every player saw extensive playing time in both halves.

Lady Jag reserve Rebecca Chalkee had the honor of sending the JC women into triple digits for the first time this season when she drained a couple of shots from the free throw line with 6:09 to go in the final half that made the score 101-25.

The damage could have been much worse had the final 11:48 of the affair not had been played with a continuous running clock, which was decided on by mutual agreement between the coaches of each team.

The Lady Jags will be back in Region XIV play today when they visit Panola College at 4 p.m.

The JC gals are 0-1 in league play while the Fillies own a 1-1 league slate.

Panola lost, 55-34, to Baton Rouge (La.) Community College on Thursday night.
