Collin College's Lady Cougars added a pair of big margin wins to their record this week, defeating Paul Quinn College and Murray State College at home. 

Collin controlled every aspect of the Paul Quinn game, outscoring the visitors in each quarter and allowing every player to score. All but one player had a steal in the defense-heavy game. 

While the Lady Cougars outscored Murray State throughout their game a few days later, it wasn't until the second half that Collin put its foot on the gas. The Lady Cougars doubled up the Lady Aggies in the final two frames with a largely balanced scoring attack. 

Leading the team in both games was sophomore Destiny Thurman who signed with the University of Texas at El Paso, Nov. 20.  Thurman put up 27 points against Paul Quinn and 18 versus Murray State College. 

Lucy Ibeh followed with 16 points against Paul Quinn. Anyssia Gibbs and Cadrina Nolen each had 15 in the game. Nolen led in rebounds with nine. 

Ariana Clark contributed 15 points against Murray State to follow Thurman in scoring. Nolen, Shala Robinson, and Awatea Leach each had 9 points. 

The Lady Cougars' next home game is a 1 p.m. home stand against Tyler Junior College, Nov. 29 during the Collin College Thanksgiving Classic. This will be the second time Collin College has faced the nationally ranked TJC Apache Ladies and the coaches believe it will be a good matchup. The Lady Cougars will face Kilgore College the following day, also at 1 p.m.
