The Lady Roadrunners saw an eight-point advantage disappear late in the second half Feb. 13 when they dropped an 85-73 decision to the 15th-ranked Crowder College Lady Riders at the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center.
Crowder took a 34-31 lead into halftime. SFCC (19-7, 3-4 in Region XVI) stormed out of the locker room to take the lead.
“We took the ball to the basket instead of settling for outside shots,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “We got some good shots. We just didn’t hit our free throws down the stretch to finish the game.”
Crowder fought its way back into the game, tying the score at 71 to force the overtime period. The Lady Riders took control of the game in overtime, outscoring SFCC 14-2 in the extra period to win the game.
Sophomore guard Mia Wesley led three Lady Roadrunners in double-figure scoring with 19 points. She also led the team in steals with two. Freshman guard Antoinette Taylor contributed 16 points and dished out a team-high three assists. Freshman guard Adella Randle-EL added 12 points and freshman guard Apiphany Woods pulled down a team-high eight rebounds.
