BRCC defeated Holmes Community College on Monday night for their second win of the season. The Lady Bears had dropped five straight before the 69-60 victory over the Lady Bulldogs.
BRCC outscored Holmes 18-9 in the first quarter and never looked back. Baton Rouge extended the lead after each quarter, heading into the final ten minutes with a twelve point lead.
