WOMEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL: EOU falls in opening round

Free throws typically tell the story of a close game, and the Eastern Oregon University women’s basketball team’s opening game at the NAIA Division II national tournament is no different in Sioux City, Iowa today. 

Trailing 66-65 with four seconds left in the game, junior Kassy Larson went to the free-throw line for the Mountaineers. Both shots bounced off the rim and to the floor without going through the net, ending the Mountaineers season. Southwestern of Kansas iced the game with a free throw, making the final 67-65.

It also ends a streak of quarterfinal runs at the national tournament by EOU. The last two seasons, the Mountaineers have been two games away from the championship game. But, a lack of opportunities and missed chances spelled the end of EOU’s season.

The Mountaineers shot 9-of-16 from the free throw line, while Southwestern shot 24-of-29.

The Mountaineers trailed by five at the half, and couldn’t find the mark from behind the arc, shooting 6-of-30 as a team. 

Senior Brittney Newcomb led the Mountaineers with 14 points. Nicole Redd, Nyesha Joseph and Larson each scored 12 points. 

The Moundbuilders were led by Jana Reichenberger with 15 points. Zefiryn Bryan added 14 points.
