The Lady Trojans of Mississippi Delta Community College played host to Co-Lin Community College in women's basketball action on Monday night looking to grab a victory and move over the .500 mark, but things were not meant to be, as the Lady Wolves scored an 84-66 victory in Moorhead.

She was trailed in the scoring department by Marlaysha Beamon (Canton), who had 13 points and four rebounds, as well as Antanisha Wade (Cleveland), who had 12 points, three assists and two steals.
