Big Second Half Boosts YC
Goldsmith has 25, Carson 13 and Snyder 12
Needing a shot in the arm after a disheartening loss on Saturday, the Lady Rider basketball team got that tonight in form of a group effort beating Chandler/Gilbert Community College, 65-50. YC runs their record to 9-8 overall and 7-2 in ACCAC play.
Trailing by 2 at halftime, YC picked up the pressure defensively holding the Lady Coyotes to 22 points in the second frame and erupted for 39 points offensively. Tehani Goldsmith led the way with 25 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. Jonisha Carson added 13 points, 1 rebound, 5 assists and 3 steals and Kellie Snyder chipped in 12 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals. Yavapai was outrebounded on the night 35-34 but outshot CGCC 47% to 28%.
YC returns to the Storm Center on Saturday, January 19th to face Eastern Arizona College. Yavapai swept both meetings last season, 73-58 and 68-63. Tip-off will be at 5:30 PM on the campus of Yavapai College in Prescott.
