Chipola Defeats East Georgia 78-53

The Lady Indians move to 3-0 on the season with a 78-53 win over East Georgia State.

Ariel Cummings recorded her third-straight double-double with 23 points and 19 rebounds. Isadora Sousa had 15 points, six rebounds, and six assists. Mbaya Sembene added in 10 points. 

The Lady Indians out-rebounded their opponent 53-34, but turned the ball over 22 times. 

Coach Greg Franklin says he sees streaks of the potential this young Chipola team has, but is hoping with time, they will become more consistent. 

"I thought at times we showed signs of the team we can be in the future, but we had way too many moments where we looked very young and inexperienced," said Franklin. "With time, hopefully we can iron out some of those spurts with some much-needed experience."

Chipola is back in action this weekend as they co-host the Panhandle Classic with the Chipola men's team. The women will face Broward at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 8, and Palm Beach at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9.
