Balanced attack scores women key regional win at Wentworth
February 15, 2013
Wednesday's 65-43 win at Wentworth Military Academy was a return to roots of sorts for the St. Louis Community College women's basketball team. The diversified scoring attack saw sophomore guard Chanese Washington (Mehlville) lead the way with a team-high 16 points. Sophomore forward Lauren Maclin (Ladue) followed closely with 15 points. Sophomore guard Kirstie Owen and freshman guard Kalah Martin added 14 and 12 points, respectively. Owen, who was forced to sit for the second half due to flu-like symptoms, scored all of her points in the first half.
The win improved the Archers to 14-9 on the season.
The victory helped the Archers to a regular season sweep of Wentworth, who the Archers also beat convincingly on Feb. 2, 75-54. The win was the third in Region XVI play for STLCC. They will look to secure a season sweep against North Central College on Saturday at home. The last meeting between North Central and STLCC represented perhaps the Archers' signature win of the season, an 83-82, double-overtime thriller in Trenton, MO. Wednesday's win represented the first road victory for STLCC since that victory over North Central.
Cancer Awareness Game Saturday
In addition to being a key game for seeding in the Region XVI tournament, Saturday's contest will also be played for a cause, in the second annual STLCC Cancer Awareness game. The Archers will hold a silent auction, raffles, drawings and will award door prizes throughout Saturday's game against North Central to raise money in support of those currently battling cancer. Tip-off for Saturday's game is 1 p.m.
