12/2 Kilgore College

On Saturday, December 2nd, Coastal Bend Basketball fell to the Lady Rangers of Kilgore. With both Darias Whittington and Samantha Atkinson-Roach scoring 17 a piece, the valent efforts of the Cougars were not enough to beat the strong and fast Lady Rangers. The Cougs out shot Kilgore in the second half with seven 3's to KC's two and outscored the home team 12 points. Despite the effort it still wasn't enough to cover for the deficit from the first half. 

Kilgore's strong rebound game that played a big role in ball possession.  The Lady Rangers corralled 42 rebounds to Coastal's 34. Although CBC outshot the Rangers from the 3-point line, 50% to 26%, it simply wasn't enough with the final score showing 83-71.
