Lady Roadrunners Finish Regular Season with Victory
Monday, February 24, 2014
The Lady Roadrunners closed out the home portion of their regular season schedule Feb. 22 with a 72-59 victory over the Mineral Area College Lady Cardinals from Park Hills. The win gives the Lady Roadrunners a regular-season Region 16 championship and the number one seed in the upcoming region tournament.
 
SFCC (18-8, 9-1 in Region 16) struggled from the free-throw line, but still managed to have a 10-point lead at halftime. The Lady Roadrunners turned up the defensive pressure in the second half and emerged with a victory in front of a large crowd at the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center on Homecoming and Sophomore Night.
 
“Our defense got a little better the second half, but we still didn’t play very well,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “We shot six out of 21 from the free-throw line in the first half, and that’s not very good.”
 
Sophomore guard Antoinette Taylor led a balanced scoring attack with 14 points. Sophomore guard/forward Apiphany Woods contributed 13 points. Sophomore guards Mary Sims and Adella Randle-EL registered 11 points each. Randle-EL led the team in steals with three and Sims dished out a team-high five assists. Freshman center Alecia Cooley recorded a double double with 10 points and 12 rebounds and led her team in blocked shots with two. Sophomore forward Asia Mosley pulled down a team-high 13 rebounds.
 
“Our sophomores stepped up and gave us balanced scoring tonight,” said Bucher. “They have done a great job during their careers here.”
 
The Lady Roadrunners will be back in action Feb. 28 in the Region 16 tournament semi-final round. Tipoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. in Park Hills against an opponent to be determined.
 
“We want to continue to improve and go into the region tournament on a winning note,” said Bucher. “We got our win; now we need refine some plays to get ready for the postseason.”
