GLEN -- Alcorn Central placed four players in double figures, with the quartet outscoring Pine Grove by 18 points themselves as the Bears evened their season mark with a 66-39 win in non-division play.

Central (10-10) held a precarious 26-20 lead over a six-win club before posting a 40-19 advantage in the second half.

Chandler Young paced the host team with 18 points and eight rebounds. John Wiley Works followed closed with 17, going 7-of-12 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line.

The Panthers (6-16) connected on a game-high seven 3-pointers, but missed 19 and could muster only nine conventional buckets.

In the opener, a Lady Bear club already playing short handed took Pine Grove (18-5) to the brink before falling 46-41.

Central (11-10) played without second-leading scorer Alexis Harmon, and lost Lauren McCreless (13 points) and Jordan Whitten (8) to fouls during the contest.

The Lady Bears led by four at the break before the Lady Panthers doubled their first-half output with 20 points. Pine Grove led 30-29 entering the fourth.

Briley Talley and McCreless tied for game honors with 13 each. Courtney Ekiss pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds as the teams fought to a 25-25 draw on the boards.
