DECATUR, Miss. (WTOK) - The East Central Community College Lady Warriors beat Hinds 71-60, in their home opener.

Hinds came out the second half swinging as they cut the lead to just two and Hinds would outscore East Central 14-7.

The Keats three-ball turned the momentum back to ECCC’s favor as the team quickly rebuilt the lead to double-digits in the fourth to pull away to a 71-60 win.
