(Neb)-Cold-Shooting, Turnovers Doom CSC Women At D-1 Wyo
LARAMIE, Wyo. - The Chadron State women missed all 11 of their shots in the 2nd quarter and gave up 39 points off 29 turnovers in an 80-33 exhibition loss last night at Division 1 Wyoming in the season opener for both teams.
The Cowgirls dominated from the opening tip, keeping Chadron State from scoring for the first 7-1/2 minutes of the game and keeping them scoreless for 15-minutes from :08 into the 2nd quarter until 5:08 remained in the 3rd period.
The Eagles played solid defense, holding Wyoming to 39% from the field, but gave up 21 offensive rebounds and 28 second-chance points as they trailed 24-8 after 1 quarter, 39-10 at the half, and 66-17 before outscoring the Cowgirls 16-14 in the final period.
Chadron State was 7-38 from the field going into the 4th quarter, but hit 7 of 13 shots in the period to finish at almost 28% for the game even though they were 0-10 from 3-point range.
The big early lead allowed Wyoming to get all 12 of its players between 12 and 22 minutes with 10 of them scoring, 4 in double-digits.
Two-thirds of Chadron State's scoring came from 3 forwards as McKenna McClintic had 9, Jessica Lovitt 7, and Rebecca Stevenson 6. Lovitt and McClintic were also tops in rebounds with 7 and 6 respectively.
Instead of coming home after the game, the Eagles drove to Denver to catch a flight to Texas, where they will open the regular season this weekend with a pair of game in the Conference Challenge.
They'll play at Texas A&M-International Friday at 6:00 MT and at Texas A&M-Kingsville Saturday morning at 11:00. The Eagles beat both teams last year in Chadron.
