Jackson State snapped Bethune-Cookman’s two-game win streak in commanding fashion on Saturday afternoon, handing it an 82-60 loss at Williams Center. The teams played a competitive first half, but the Lady Tigers came out hot after the break, outscoring the Wildcats 47-28 over the final 20 minutes.
Ti’lan Boler led the way for Jackson State, putting up 20 points. Boler was just a cog in a complete offensive performance for the Lady Tigers. The team shot 60% from the field while scoring 1.15 points per possession. They put a particular emphasis on generating easy looks close to the hoop, shooting 27-of-44 from the field, including 22-of-37 in the paint.
Chanel Wilson put up 21 points to lead BCU. The Wildcats went 21-of-58 from the field in this one, including 6-of-20 from the three-point line. In total, their overall offensive efficiency wasn’t great, and was a major factor in the loss. They scored just 0.8 points per possession on 45% true shooting.
These teams will have little time to prep for their next test, as each plays next on Jan. 23. Jackson State takes on Florida A&M, while Bethune-Cookman meets Alcorn State in a conference showdown. The Lady Tigers will look to keep their momentum rolling and earn another win. On the other side, the Wildcats will hit the road once again.
