After grinding through the first two quarters just trying to keep pace, Angelina College’s Lady Roadrunners got lifts from a third-quarter surge and a big night from freshman Tyanna Barlow to beat McLennan College 73-65 Saturday at Shands Gymnasium in the final day of the Angelina Classic.
AC’s Mikayla Crockett hit a three pointer at the 6:49 mark of the third quarter to put the Lady ‘Runners up 34-33, and AC wouldn’t trail again, leading by as many as 19 points by game’s end.
Barlow hit six of her nine field-goal attempts, including a 2-for-2 effort from three-point range, to lead the Lady Roadrunners with 18 points. LaNeique Nealey added 12 points and eight rebounds, and Ebony Story and Ashley Cherry added nine points each, with Story pulling down eight rebounds as well.
Kyera Coleman led McLennan with 15 points; Ariana Sanders added 11.
In the day’s early game, Seminole State’s Torrii Tarkington put back a miss with 10 seconds to play to lift the Belles to a 73-72 win over Panola College.
The Lady Roadrunners (3-2) will host LSU-Eunice Monday evening at 6 p.m. at Shands Gymnasium.
