With its leading scorer, Deva'Nyar Workman, on the bench in foul trouble, the Jacksonville College womens basketball team turned to a pair of its sophomores to pick up the slack on Tuesday.
Yvonne Maosa and Ally Moore responded in fine fashion by scoring 16 and 12 points, respectively, as the Lady Jaguars had little difficulty in turning back Panola College, 72-54.
JC (11-9, 5-4 Region XIV) outscored Panola (8-13, 1-8) 34-22 in the first half to put the Fillies on the ropes early. Jamie Lamb and Shahd Abboud added nine points apiece and Workman tossed in eight for the winners. Maosa pulled down 12 rebounds and Workman had 10 to pace JC.
The Lady Jags will be in Athens on Saturday afternoon to take on No. 1-ranked Trinity Valley Community College.
