    BHSU WBB: Yellow Jackets Offense Too Much for Cougars to Handle

    SPEARFISH, S.D. - A double-digit effort by three players helped carry the Black Hills State University women's basketball team to a victory over Colorado Christian University on Saturday night, 80-58.

    The Yellow Jackets improve to 19-6 overall and 13-6 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference action, while the Cougars fall to 6-17 on the season and 4-14 in conference play.

    In the first quarter, it went back and forth, as the Cougars kept it close and tied the game twice, until a 12-2 run by the Green and Gold set the pace and momentum for the game. Lyndzi Rich started the run, making two from the line to take the Yellow Jacket lead up to 16-10.

    Rachel Erickson followed up draining back-to-back shots from downtown. Rich found Remi Wientjes at half court, as Rich tipped the ball out to Wientjes, who drove to the basket for the layup to give BHSU a 25-10 lead. Jordan Baer of the Cougars stopped the run, hitting two from the line, but Rich closed out the quarter with two from the line to take the lead up to 27-12.

    In the second quarter, the Green and Gold ran away with it, as Alyssia Martinez drained a shot from beyond the arc to increase the BHSU lead to 32-16. Julia Seamans hit back-to-back shots from downtown to go up, 38-16.

    Halfway through the second quarter, the Yellow Jackets were shooting 50 percent from beyond the arc, as Danielle Noble hit her first career three to keep the high percentage going. The Cougars were unable to overcome the Green and Gold offense, as BHSU closed out the second quarter, 45-30.

    In the third, it was nothing but net, as Seamans hit two more three-pointers, trying to chase down the school record that she set back in November, but came up short scoring five threes for all 15 of her points.

    With under three minutes remaining in the third, the Yellow Jackets led, 61-37. Abby Switzer entered the game and hit another three for the Green and Gold to increase the lead, 67-39.

    The Cougars were unable to recover and shut down the Black Hills State offense. The Yellow Jackets finished the game defeating Colorado Christian, 80-58.
    Black Hills State shot 50 percent (28-of-56) from the field, 45.5 percent (10-of-22) from downtown, and 73.7 percent (14-of-19) from the line. The Green and Gold edged out the Cougars on rebounds, 32-27.

    Rich led the offense with 20 points, going 8-of-11 from the floor and 4-of-4 from the line. Seamans scored 15, all from beyond the arc, and Erickson finished with 13 points. Seamans and Erickson each had four assists.

    Rich grabbed five rebounds, while Noble had four.

    Black Hills State returns to action on Saturday, February 17, to host Colorado Mesa in its final home game of the season. Tipoff is slated for 4 p.m.
