The Apache Ladies of Tyler Junior College jumped off to a 10-2 lead and never let the Lady Dragons of Paris Junior College back in the game Saturday afternoon at the Hunt Center on the PJC campus.
Shernise Robertson scored 21 points, including 10-of-12 free throws, for Tyler, which improved to 9-1 for the season and 2-0 in Region 14.
Chy Cunningham and Shannon DeFoe led Paris (6-6, 0-2) with 16 points apiece. DaMya Toney (13 points) and Adriene Small (12 points) also were in double figures.
The Lady Dragons continued their season-long prowess from the free throw line, hitting 25 of 28 (89.3 percent), including 10-of-10 by DeFoe.
But they were chilly from the field — whether from outside or close up.
And the Lady Dragons committed numerous unforced turnovers, which allowed Tyler to pull away every time they got close.
That was Robertson’s only 3-pointer, but twice she was fouled while shooting from outside and turned her six free throw shots into four points.
Small scored seven of Paris’ points during a 10-2 run as the Lady Dragons pulled to within 23-19 with 8:25 to play in the first half.
Tyler led by 10 to 15 points for most of the second half, but Shanice Vaughan scored all six of her points for Paris in a span of a minute and 44 seconds to bring the Lady Dragons to within 63-57 with 7:10 to play.
Tyler then missed on the other end, and Small grabbed the rebound for Paris. But Caitlyn Ramirez stole the ball immediately for an easy basket, and the momentum turned.
Tyler followed two more Paris turnovers with baskets for a 6-0 run in 65 seconds, and the Lady Dragons were down by a dozen, never to get close again.
With the end of the fall semester at PJC close at hand, the Lady Dragons wrap up their play for 2013 on Wednesday, with a 5:30 p.m. contest against Bossier Parish, which is in its first season of women’s basketball.

The women’s game between the women’s basketball teams of Paris Junior College and Tyler Junior College will be played as scheduled at 2 p.m. today at the Hunt Center on the PJC campus, Lady Dragons head coach Michael Madrid confirmed this morning.
But the men’s game between PJC and San Jacinto College, scheduled for the Hunt Center at 4 p.m., is off. It has been postponed because of the icy conditions.
“It’s just a 90-minute drive from Tyler, but it’s six hours from San Jacinto,” Paris Dragons head coach Chuck Taylor said at 8 a.m. today.
No decision has been made on when to reschedule the game, but it probably will be on a Monday night in the second half of the season. The Dragons already have one makeup game scheduled, for 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 6, in Beeville, because a city-wide water outage resulted in Wednesday’s game against Coastal Bend not being played.
Those makeup games result in three games being played in five days — a Saturday game followed by a Monday game followed by a Wednesday. Now, the Dragons are looking at two such situations in the January-February period.
The Lady Dragons are scheduled to play Tyler College’s Lady Apaches at 2 p.m., followed by the Dragons vs. San LPJC women’s team dropped an 81-35 game to nationally No. 2-ranked Trinity Valley in both teams’ first Region XIV conference action Wednesday.
The Lady Dragons lost their Region XIV opener on Wednesday, losing 81-35 in Athens to the No. 2-ranked and two-time defending nationa champion Lady Cardinals of Trinity Valley Community College.
The Lady Cardinals jumped out to a 16-1 lead, and it got worse from there. It was 46-13 by halftime. Paris made only two field goals in the first half and only seven for the game.
Shanice Vaughan led Paris with 10 points.
TVCC improved to 10-1 for the season and 1-0 in league play. Paris fell to 6-5, 0-1.
It was the 49th straight win at home for the Lady Cardinals.
The Lady Cardinals defense forced 18 Paris turnovers.
More than half of Paris’ points came from the free throw line. The Lady Dragons made 18 of 27 from the charity stripe.
Jazmine Spears scored 21 points and Deborah Meeks 19 points for Trinity Valley.
It was the second straight loss for the Lady Dragons after getting off to a 6-3 start. They suffered a tough 95-89 loss in triple overtime on Monday in Little Rock to Arkansas Baptist.
After Saturday, the Dragons and Lady Dragons each have only one more game in 2013.
Both teams have games next Wednesday.
The Lady Dragons are home, in the Hunt Center, against the Lady Cavaliers of Bossier Parish at 5:30 p.m. It’s Bossier Parish’s first year of women’s basketball games.
The Dragons are on the road at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, playing in Port Arthur against the Seahawks of Lamar State-Port Arthur.
The Dragons’ game with Coastal Bend has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Jan. 6 in Beeville — which will become the middle game of three Region XIV contests in six days.
PJC’s men will be at Lufkin to play Angelina College at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 4; in Beeville to play Coastal Bend at 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 6; and in Paris to play Jacksonville at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8.
The Lady Dragons also will be off from Dec. 11 until the first weekend in January. They will be in a tournament at Waco, playing Temple at noon on Friday, Jan. 3, and McLennan County at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 4.
