Cold Hand Hurts Spartans

Langley, British Columbia - The Trinity Western University women's basketball team came out strong, but ice cold shooting down the stretch cost the Spartans in Saturday night's 66-61 loss to the University College of the Cariboo Sun Demons.

The Spartans had a strong first half and led the Sun Demons 40-36 after 20 minutes of play. The 3 point shooting of Trinity Western 3rd year guard Christie Bigelow (Lynden, WA) and 4th year guard Jamie Mullaney (Abbotsford, BC) kept the Spartans in the game as they combined for 5 of 6 shooting from behind the arc in the first 20 minutes.

The second half was a different story for the Spartans. The Sun Demons came out flying and went on a 15-8 run to go up 51-48 after the first 5 minutes of the second half. Then between the 15 minute mark and the 6 minute mark the Spartans couldn't by a basket, scoring 3 points over the 9 minutes. Allowing the Sun Demons to build their lead to 57-51.

With just over 5 minutes to go in the game a timely put back by Trinity Western forward Anna Chinnery (Abbotsford, BC) put the Spartans within 3 points, down 57-54 of the Sun Demons. Unfortunately, that was as close as the Spartans would get tonight.

In the end it was offensive rebounds (17-6 for Cariboo) and the missed free throws (6/16-37.5%) in the second half that cost the Spartans the game.

Statistical leaders for the Spartans were: Anna Chinnery 14 points, Christie Bigelow 13 points, Heidi Frandrup (Newport, WA) 11 points, 4 rebounds and Jamie Mullaney 11 points.

Statistical leaders for the Sun Demons were: Amber Paulson (Kamloops, BC) 22 points, 5 rebounds, Elizabeth Hunter (Kamloops, BC) 14 points and Amanda Bjork (Duncan, BC) 13 points.

Next up for the Spartans
Wednesday, October 18 vs. the University College of the Fraser Valley. Game time at Trinity Western University is 7:00 PM.
