MARIANNA, Fla. - Tallahassee Community College’s women’s basketball team had its season come to an end on Tuesday evening, dropping a 73-67 decision to Gulf Coast State College in a Panhandle Conference playoff game, hosted by Chipola College.

The Eagles finish the 2014-15 season at 20-11, 5-8 in Panhandle Conference play. Gulf Coast State improved to 6-7 in league play and advances to the NJCAA Region 8/FCSAA State Tournament as the PC’s No. 3 seed.

Playing without four injured starters, the Eagles played inspired ball and trailed by only a point, 16-15, at the 9:59 mark of the first half. But the lack of depth showed over the next ten minutes as the Commodores closed on a 22-6 run and took a 38-21 lead to the locker room.

Out of the intermission, Tallahassee mounted a charge, outscoring Gulf Coast State 27-12 to pull within two points, 50-48, heading into the final ten minutes .That, however, was as close as the Eagles got.

Eboni Watts led four Eagles in double-figures with 18 points. Marija Pacar added 17 and Jeremica Edwards and Parish Johnson Jones scored 10 points each.

Benedicta Makakala dished out 12 assists for the Eagles.
