Rustlers chalk up victory over Nebraska Tech
Riverton, WY (Nov. 18) – The Central Wyoming College women’s basketball team improved their record to 3-0 on the first night of the Electrical Dynamics Classic, by defeating Nebraska Tech 94-22. The Lady Rustlers defense created 34 turnovers on their way to victory.
CWC had six players in double figures. Rock Spring, WY native Courtney Patterson lead the team with 13 points. Sydney, Australia native Jacki Nicholson had 12 points, while Preston, ID native Elise Keller and Nibley, UT native Brynlie Nielsen had 11 points apiece. Rounding out the double figure scorers were Perry, UT native Kaylee Walker and Bountiful, UT native Samantha Hart with 10 points each.
“I thought the Ladies did a really good job of defending as you can tell by the amount of turnovers we created. I also thought we did a good job of moving the basketball and getting everyone involved with the offense and when you shoot 50% on the night you are going to win a lot of ball games,” said Coach Serol Stauffenberg.
The Lady Rustlers will now take on Blackfeet Community College at 5:30 p.m. Saturday night in the final round games of the Electrical Dynamics Classic.
