The Lady Roadrunners used a 15-2 run to break open a close game early in the contest to defeat the Vincennes University Trailblazers from Vincennes, Ind., 74-50 in the first round of the McDonald’s Classic Nov. 2 in the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center.
“We were playing even with them early in the game,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “I had to get the right rotation in there for the trap. When you put the trap on, it just speeds up the entire game. It is a benefit to the teams that have depth and we knew they were a little shorthanded.”
The Lady Roadrunners took a 37-23 lead into halftime. SFCC stretched the advantage to 24 points at 67-43, the largest lead by either team in the contest.
Sophomore guard Mia Wesley led the Lady Roadrunners in scoring with 17 points. Freshman guard Antoinette Taylor contributed 13 points and also dished out a team-leading four assists. Freshman forward Asia Mosley pulled down a team-high 13 rebounds.
“You could tell what our emphasis has been for the last week and a half,” said Bucher. “I think 60 rebounds as a team is the most we’ve ever had.”
