Liveliness and cheering from the stands of the Pinnacle, which was soon packed out with fans and supporters, ignited the Lady Tigers. The crowd’s enthusiasm motivated them to champion their homecoming game against Southern University at Shreveport Louisiana’s (SUSLA) Lady Jaguars. The CCC Women’s Basketball team came out on top with a score of 61-43.

  

Between breaks, Coahoma paid homage to Hall of Fame inductees, retired English instructor and remarkable sports journalist for the University of Arkansas, as well as Coahoma Community College, Glynda Duncan; Delinda Samuels, a former star athlete for then Coahoma Junior College in the 1980s, and the 1988 Women’s Basketball Team comprised of 11 notable alumnae for which a commemorative banner was unveiled during their recognition. Student Engagement Director Karen Done crowned Mr. and Miss Basketball, CCC freshmen Arianna Thigpen, a native of Birmingham, Alabama and Cornelius Holly, a Friars Point, Mississippi native who attended Coahoma Early College High School, after the Lady Tigers celebrated their win. The two students were selected for displaying great character and athletic performance. They have also earned high grade point averages.

Before a power outage caused the second half of the Mighty Tigers’ matchup against Faith Prep Academy to be canceled, the Tate County Seniors, a group of middle-aged and older-aged women, spiced up the basketball court with their eye-catching sashays for the halftime entertainment.
