A Perfect Ten

A Perfect Ten

The Cumberland County College women's basketball team is still perfect.  By looking at the halftime score and the final score, both being a 9 point margin in favor of Cumberland, one would think it was a consistent performance across the board.  But one who watched the game would tell you something different. The Dukes led by as many as 17 in the first half and trailed as many as 6 during the second half, but Cumberland answered the bell when it mattered most.  Key three-point buckets from both Kyra Lunsford and Mackenzie Wimberg down the stretch delivered a knock out blow to a scrappy Brookdale squad, and Alicia Cox sealed the win with clutch free throws in the waning minutes.  Tess Elder was huge in the first half knocking down 4 three-pointers and helped the Dukes gain an early lead. Elder finished with 16 points.  Lunsford finished with 12 points off the bench and point guard Alicia Cox scored a game high 18 points. Sophomore Eden Obou led Brookdale with 13 points.  The Dukes improve to 10-0 on the season and look to make it 11 straight when neighboring rival Atlantic Cape Community College comes to Cunningham Gymnasium this Thursday.  The game will tip off at 5PM.
