Aztecs Conquer Yavapai

January 13th, 2010 » filed under: Top Story, Women's Basketball News

The Lady Rider basketball team dropped only their second conference game of the season with a 59-49 loss to the visiting #14 ranked Aztecs from Pima Community College (13-4, 8-1) Wednesday night. YC falls to 9-7 overall and 7-2 in ACCAC action.

Both teams were tied going into halftime at 27, but cold shooting from the Roughriders spelled their doom as they only scored 22 points after intermission. Kira DeMorales was the only Lady Rider in double figures with 12 points.

Yavapai is on the road for the next two games beginning on Saturday at Mesa Community College. The game will tip-off at 3:00 PM. YC travels to #8 ranked and defending NJCAA National Champions Central Arizona College on Wednesday, January 20th before returning home to entertain Arizona Western College on Saturday, January 23rd.
