Women’s Basketball Lose on Late Triple
- Submitted by

Windsor, ON – The St. Clair College Women’s Basketball team dropped their record to 4-2 in the OCAA’s West Division after losing 77-76 to Niagara College (Welland) Saturday afternoon at the SportsPlex. 

The teams played even in the opening minutes until Niagara forged ahead 24-17 with a late flurry at the end of the first quarter.  Niagara continued that momentum into the second quarter leading by as much as 18 points (43-25) and took a 43-27 advantage into the halftime intermission.  The Saints regrouped in the third quarter outscoring Niagara 26-12 in the frame and early in the fourth overtook the lead.  With a tenuous 73-68 lead in the final minutes St. Clair allowed Niagara to score a few baskets setting up the final 3-point blow with just under 10 seconds.  With no timeouts remaining the Saints rushed the ball up the court but their final shot from the corner came up short.  

Saints 2nd year guard Jana Kucera (Chatham, ON) led all scorers with 34 points including 5 triples adding 10 rebounds and 6 assists in the outstanding performance. Noor Bazzi (Windsor, ON/Vincent Massey) has established herself well in a reserve role for St. Clair registering 3 triples of her own and finished with 15 points to go with 7 rebounds.  Logan Kucera (Chatham, ON) chipped in with 11 points for the Saints.

Bridget Atkinson (Welland, ON) had 21 points to lead Niagara to the win.  

The St. Clair Women’s Basketball team continue their regular season schedule on the road Wednesday when they visit Lambton College (Sarnia) at 6:00pm.
