Jackson State's Double-Double Dream Team Dominates Bethune-Cookman in 82-60 Victory


Looks like the Jackson State Tigers had a field day (literally) against the Bethune-Cookman Wildcat women's basketball team. With five players posting double figures, the Tigers crushed the Wildcat's 82-60 on their home court. Ti'lan Boler led the way for JSU with 20 points, while Angel Jackson added 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 blocks coming off the bench. Daja Woodard and Jariyah Covington also contributed with 13 and 10 points respectively. The Tigers' ball movement was on point, racking up 15 assists on 32 made field goals. The Jackson State defense was also a force to be reckoned with, holding BCU to just 36.2% from the field, and 30% from beyond the arc. The Wildcat's didn't get many second chances, as they only grabbed 5 offensive rebounds and scored 12 second chance points, while the Tigers pulled down 25 defensive rebounds. Jackson State dominated the paint, scoring 18 of their 26 points close to the basket, and the Tigers continued to preserve their lead throughout the game, going on a 13-0 run to grow the lead to 70-50 with 5:27 to go in the contest. The Tigers took advantage of their opportunities, scoring 14 of their 25 points in the paint, and shot 60% from the field to reach their 82-point total. The Jackson State bench also came alive, adding 35 points to their scoring output. Jackson State never trailed in the second half, and recorded 15 total assists in the game. They also had a 34-14 edge on the boards in the win and forced 13 turnovers. The Tigers will host Florida A&M on Monday evening at the Lee E. Williams Athletic and Assembly Center. Tip-off is set for 5:30 p.m.
