DECATUR— No. 20 Pearl River flexed its muscles in a big way Tuesday.
Facing off against Mississippi Delta in their second game of the East Central Shootout, the Wildcats scored early and often to race off to a 97-60 victory.
"I've honestly thought these last two games that we have gotten four percent better instead of two percent better because we have kind of went through it all," PRCC coach Chris Oney said. "The first game we had to battle back but in this game we kind of had to make sure we were focused because this was the last game before the break."
Firing on all cylinders
Tuesday was just another example of the explosiveness the Wildcats posses on offense.
In their six wins so far, PRCC (6-0) has scored 98, 103, 95, 140, 85 and 97 points.
Not only did the Wildcats play spectacular offense but they also came up big on the defensive side of the ball, limiting Delta (3-3) to 60 points. The defensive effort tied the lowest point total they have given up all season.
Spreading the Wealth
One of the consistent strengths this PRCC team has shown this year is its ability to pass the ball and dish out points from every direction.
Cedric Brim Jr. (Tupelo; Shannon) led the way once again for the Wildcats with 26 points.
LaGarious White (Ridgeland; Brandon) wasn't far behind Brim, scoring a season high 20 points in the contest.
Eric Thornton Jr. (Canton; Murrah) added 14 points for the Wildcats.
"I thought they all played really well. We shared the ball and everyone did what they needed to do," Oney said. "It was not one guy tonight, it was everybody contributing and when we share the ball that way it makes us a very dangerous team."
The Wildcats return to action next Tuesday when they travel to Baton Rouge to take on Baton Rouge Community College at 6:30 p.m.
