Women Hoopsters Drop Two In Yuma
The Lady Rider basketball team dropped two games this past Friday and Saturday at the Wells Fargo Classic in Yuma, Arizona.
The two setbacks put YC at 7-7 overall, but more importantly they remain 5-1 in the ACCAC standings.
On Friday, Yavapai could not overcome sluggishness and overall bad play as the Lady Badgers from Snow College won 65-53. The going got tougher on Saturday; YC played #14 South Plains College, TX. The Lady Riders responded with a better effort and a chance to upset the nationally ranked Texans. Yavapai held an 8 point lead with 10 minutes to play but faltered in the end to lose 68-64.
Tehani Goldsmith led the squad in scoring both nights with 18 and 19 respectively. Sandy Cook had 10 points in the first game and 9 points in the final game. For the first time this season, Yavapai was out rebounded in back to back games.
The lady hoopsters return to the hardwood on Wednesday, January 8th against South Mountain Community College. The game will be played at the Storm Center on the campus of Yavapai College in Prescott. Tip-off will be at 5:30 PM.
