KINGSTON SPRINGS — A night after she dropped 42 points on FRC, Community’s M.J. Simmons logged another stellar night to lead the Viqueens to another win.
On Friday night, she went for a game-high 35 points and the Viqueens made short work of Harpeth in a 55-35 win.
The name of the game was feeding the ball to Simmons and attack the paint.
Simmons spent the bulk of the night at the free throw line, where she alone cashed in on 13-of-18 attempts.
In the first quarter, Community went on a 16-0 tear to open the game, but saw Harpeth claw its way back into the game with a 13-7 run in the second frame, cutting the Purple and Gold lead to 10 points at the half.
Another lop-sided quarter fell Community’s way with a 13-4 run in the third quarter.
Harpeth did get loose for 18 points in the fourth, only falling behind Community by a single point in the quarter.
Simmons was the only player to reach double figures for either team.
Senior Haley Mitchell chipped in eight points as well.
The Viqueens get a bit of a break before facing East Hickman in the Tullahoma Classic on Thursday afternoon.
