The Chipola Lady Indians basketball team are headed to Nationals in Lubbock, Texas.  The Lady Indians advanced to the NJCAA National Tournament on an at large bid as runners up in the state tournament last week in Ocala.  Chipola fought hard but came up short in the 80-72 loss.  

Chipola took the first quarter, 21-18 before Gulf Coast edged them 16-15 in the second quarter.  At the half, it was a 36-34 Chipola lead.

In the second half, the Lady Commodores came out charged up and ready to make a statement. They won the third quarter 20-16 to take a 38-34 lead going into the final period of play.  The lead continued to slip away in the fourth quarter with Gulf Coast taking the win, 80-72.

Chipola was led in scoring by Sydnee McDonald with 15 points.  McDonald added six rebounds, one assist, and three steals on the day to her stats.  On board with 14 points, two rebounds, two steals, and two assists was Barbara Johnson.  Tiaera Phillips and Raven Baker-Northcross were both on board with 12 points each.  Nana Sule led the team in rebounds with seven and added two steals and two assists to her totals.  

Chipola will play the winner of the Walters State/Tyler game.  Chipola enters the tournament as the number three seed.
