The Lady Roadrunners opened their second semester schedule Jan. 4 with an 82-74 victory at home over the Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley Lady Scouts from Kansas City. SFCC (12-3) jumped out to a 25-12 lead in the first half.
“We did a good job of running in transition early,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “Our defense was a lot better, but then we became stagnant. Our full-court pressure and half-court trap made the difference in the game. We were able to get some steals and convert some shots.”
Sophomore guard Mia Wesley and freshman guard Adella Randle-EL tied for the team lead in scoring with 18 points apiece. Sophomore guard/forward Julia Torres contributed 14 points and freshman guard Apiphany Woods added 12 points. Sophomore forward/center Kaitlyn Mercer pulled down a team-high eight rebounds. Woods dished out a team-high four assists and she and Randle-EL each registered a team-high three steals.
The Lady Roadrunners will open Region XVI and Midwest Community College Athletic Conference play Jan. 8 against the Three Rivers Community College Lady Raiders. Tipoff from the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center is scheduled for 6 p.m.
