NWAACC roundup: CBC women 7th

March 5, 2013 

It may not have been for the trophy they had hoped, but the Columbia Basin College women capped their season with a sterling effort.

Kelsey Yenney hit 8 of 9 shots and scored 20 points to lead the Hawks to a 71-56 win over Southwestern Oregon on Tuesday morning at the Toyota Center to take seventh place at the NWAACC basketball championships. It was CBC’s third straight win after losing in the first round.

Last year’s champions posted their highest score of the tournament while putting the defensive wraps on the Lakers.

SWOCC post Quynne Eharis continued her outstanding tournament with 20 points and 13 rebounds. But take away her 8-for-14 shooting performance, and the rest of the team drops to 16-for-47 (34 percent).

Yenney wasn’t the only sharpshooter for CBC (17-13). Sierra Higheagle was 7-for-9 on her way to 15 points. Hannah Depew scored 17, and Alicia Jones continued her rebounding magic with 10 more coming off back-to-back 17-board performances. Additionally, Kellie Ross overcame a rough shooting day (1-for-10) to dole out seven assists.

Maricela Aguilera added 15 points for SWOCC (17-13), but no other Lakers player topped six points.
