BOONEVILLE, Miss.,--Northeast Mississippi Community College's basketball teams completed the season series sweep verses East Central Community College on Thursday night in Decatur.
Both the Tigers and Lady Tigers defeated East Central back on November 5 in Booneville and on Thursday night Northeast completed the series sweep in Decatur dropping the Lady Warriors in the opener 79-66 with the Tigers finishing the deal in the nightcap 94-69.
Freshman sensation Angelia Allen from Belmont led the way once again for head coach Brian Alexander and company. Allen finished the game with a game high 21 points to go along with her six boards and four assists.
