Two games in Bossier, two wins in Bossier for the Kilgore College Lady Rangers, back to their winning ways after resuming the season on New Year’s Day.
KC, after a month-long holiday layoff, beat LSU-Eunice, 75-66, on Wednesday, and then defeated Copiah-Lincoln (Miss.), 73-69, on Thursday.
It was just the third meeting ever between the KC and LSU-Eunice women’s teams, and KC is 3-0 in that series.
Coach Addie Lees’ Lady Rangers are 12-3, now, and have won three straight dating back to their last game before the holiday break, a win over Panola College on Dec. 11.
