Lady Hoopsters Win Fifth Straight
With 5 games left in the regular season, the Lady Rider basketball team is one game closer to clinching a playoff spot after beating Pima Community College, 58-47 tonight in the Storm Center.
YC is now 17-8 overall and 14-3 in the conference standings.
Despite shooting a dismal 38% from the field in the first half, Yavapai entered the locker room tied, 28-28. PCC took a four-point lead early after intermission. Paris Dunford and Ebony Ward led the charge as the lady hoopsters regained the lead and held on for the victory. Dunford scored a game high 16 points and Ward chipped in 12 to go along with 4 steals. Kellie Snyder was monstrous on the boards grabbing 12 to lead the squad.
Yavapai returns to the road on Saturday to face South Mountain Community College in Phoenix. Earlier this year, YC beat the Cougars 95-73 in Prescott. The afternoon affair will begin at 2:00 PM on the campus of SMCC.
