Lady Riders Fall On New Year’s Day

January 1st, 2009 » filed under: Women's Basketball News

The Lady Rider basketball team dropped a New Year’s Day contest to top 20 ranked College of Southern Idaho, 73-58.

YC found themselves down at halftime 44-37 but the Lady Eagles proved to be too much for the lady hoopsters. Yavapai is now 7-5 overall and remain at 4-2 in ACCAC play. Freshman DeAndra Adsitt led the squad in scoring with 17 points. Bjonee Reaves added 14.

YC shot a measly 37.5% from the field compared to 46% from the opponent. However, the glaring difference was from the rebounding side of the game. CSI garnered 51 rebounds (18 offensive) to Yavapai’s 23.

YC plays host to the Wells Fargo Classic Friday and Saturday. Yavapai plays Bismarck State College at 6:00 PM tomorrow evening and North Idaho College on Saturday night at 6:00 PM.
