Battle of Unbeatens: Gulf Coast vs. #5 Pearl River

POPLARVILLE, Miss. (WLOX) - The rivalry between Pearl River and Gulf Coast goes back as long as 97 years, maybe even a bit longer.

On Tuesday, there will be a new wringle added into their “strained relationship” as both men’s basketball squads are undefeated, boasting 12-0 records, but only one can remain unbeaten with first place in the MACJC South division on the line. Both teams currently have the top two scoring defenses in the country.
