KeeKee Nowlin and Nadia Hayes tallies 19 points each as the McLennan Community College women’s basketball team snagged a nice road win over Coastal Bend, 89-75.

Sputtering out of the gate, the Highlassies (5-2) found their groove at the end of the first quarter by using a 12-0 run to take a seven-point lead into the second, where it was much of the same. The Highlassies led by 14 at the half.

Jaylonn Walker added 14 and Velma Mitchell had 10 for MCC.

The Highlassies will take a break for the Thanksgiving holiday before returning to action Nov. 24 & 25 at the Budke/Serna Thanksgiving Classic in Athens. MCC will face Tallahassee (Florida) at 3 p.m. Friday and Panola at 2 p.m. Saturday.
