Lady Barons ride twin double-doubles to victory

Two Brewton-Parker College Lady Barons achieved double-doubles Thursday night in their 76-60 victory over Berry College in Southern States Athletic Conference women's basketball action at Mount Berry.

Tamika Drinks, a 6-foot junior guard-forward from Mount Vernon, led the Lady Barons' charge with game highs of 19 points and 13 rebounds for her ninth double-double of the season. Drinks also had a team-high three blocked shots and shared the team lead in steals with guard Ashley Little with three apiece.

Crystal McNeil, a 6-foot senior forward from Pensacola, Fla., supported Drinks with 13 points and 11 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the year. Sophomore center Brandi Kea of Statesboro added 11 points.

Little, a junior from Lawrenceville, had a team-leading four assists.

Brewton-Parker (27-1 overall, 15-1 SSAC) won its ninth straight game by forcing 27 Berry turnovers and limiting the Lady Vikings (17-9, 11-5 SSAC) to just 29 percent shooting from the floor.

"Our transition game got them running and really got them tired," Lady Barons coach Sheila Simmons said. "They are a big team and we did a fairly good job on the boards (despite being out-rebounded 51-46)."

Senior guard Britney Wetherington led Berry with a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds.

The game was the fifth in 10 days for Brewton-Parker, which now has a week until its next action, at home Thursday, Feb. 17, against Emmanuel College (13-14, 7-9 after losing Thursday night). Tip-off at Gillis Gymnasium on the Mount Vernon campus is at 6 p.m.

"We will let them get their legs back and then prepare for Emmanuel," Simmons said.
