Forced to step up her scoring load after leading scorer Claresa Banks went down with an injury against Meridian, Collins responded with a career high tying 22 points (9-14 from the floor) in an 80-45 win over Gulf Coast. Collins grabbed six steals and was a major force in causing 28 Lady Bulldog turnovers.

Earlier in the week against Meridian Collins scored 18 points in 39 minutes of action in a tough 98-85 Lady Wolves win. She was also outstanding as a distributor in that game, handing out seven assists without a turnover. Co-Lin is currently ranked No. 18 in the NJCAA Top 25 poll.
