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
