The Lady Rider basketball squad dropped their second consecutive game Tuesday night at the hands of the #5 ranked Mesa Community College Thunderbirds, 74-58. YC is now 17-12 overall and 13-8 in ACCAC action. Because of the loss, Yavapai will begin the playoffs next Wednesday evening at Arizona Western College in Yuma.

The lady hoopsters got off to a miserable shooting night posting a 17% field goal percentage in the first half to go into intermission down 30-17. Yavapai found the mark in the second half shooting 48% from the field, however, too little too late.

Danielle Reiher led the scoring with 18 points and DeAndra Adsitt had 10 points and led the team in rebounding with 7. Julianne Forte` added 8 points and 7 caroms.

The Roughriders finish up the regular season on Friday evening in Coolidge against #2 ranked Central Arizona College, the regular season ACCAC champions. Game time will be at 5:30 PM.
