Brian Caro’s four three pointers in the first half helped the Angelina College Lady Roadrunners keep pace with the visiting Paris Lady Dragons.
Her 25-point night helped lead the Lady ‘Runners to their third conference victory, an 89-75 win Wednesday at Shands Gymnasium.
Caro finished with six treys for the night. Her efforts, combined with Malachi McQueen’s 20-point, 15-rebound, six-steal performance helped the Lady Roadrunners against a tough Paris defense.
In Corsicana, the Roadrunners dropped an 83-82 heartbreaker to Navarro College when the Bulldogs’ Keir Anderson nailed a three pointer at the buzzer. AC falls to 10-6, 3-3 on the season.
The Lady Dragons helped hold AC a 6-of-24 shooting effort in the first half. Caro’s 12 points helped, but so did the Lady ‘Runners offensive rebounding prowess: AC scored 14 second-chance points and hit seven free throws over the game’s first 20 minutes to take a 37-34 lead at the break.
McQueen took over in the third period, scoring 11 of her points to help push the AC lead to double digits. Ariel Taylor, who finished the game with 11 points, helped nail down the win by scoring nine in the game’s final three minutes.
Asjha White-Salas led the Lady Dragons with 22 points. Leah Jossell and Tamia Hewitt finished with 10 each.
The Lady Roadrunners (10-7, 3-4) will host Bossier Parish College on Saturday as part of a women/men doubleheader. AC’s ladies tip off at 2 p.m., with the Roadrunners following at 4 p.m.
