NWAACC roundup: CBC will play for 7th

March 4, 2013 

Last year when the Columbia Basin and Yakima Valley women met, it was for all the marbles.

On Monday, the third day of the NWAACC Championships, it was for a berth in today’s game for seventh and eighth place.

But the Hawks’ defense was at its big-game best, putting the clamps on the Yaks in a 68-53 win at the Toyota Center.

Sara Higheagle had 12 points, nine boards and five assists for CBC (16-13), which will play Southwestern Oregon (17-12) in today’s 10 a.m. trophy game.

Alicia Jones had her second straight 17-rebound effort (she has 43 boards in three games) to go along with 10 points. Also, Kellie Ross canned 4 of 8 3-pointers (after going 3-for-16 in the first two games) and scored 13 points.

Finally, Brenda Bingham provided a big game off the bench with 13 points and 10 boards, but it was the CBC defense that stole the show.

The Hawks limited Yakima Valley (17-13) to 23 percent from the field (16-for-70) and 24 percent on 3s. They gave special attention to YVC freshman guard Sami Jo Blodgett, coming off a 35-point game.

Blodgett finished 2-for-14 with six points and didn’t even attempt a 3-pointer after going 3-for-5 from long range the previous night.

Kaylah Gonzales led the Yaks with 16 points and five steals.
