Box Score

(Miles City, MT) -- The Miles Community College Lady Pioneers were defeated by North sub-region opponent Sheridan College yesterday.  The women were defeated by the streaking 18-1 Lady Generals, who now have won nine straight games, by a score of 77-53 to fall to 14-5 overall and 3-3 in the sub region.  
 
In the first game of the afternoon, Ivana Grbic (Belgrade, Serbia) scored eight first half points to help keep MCC within striking distance of the Lady Generals.  Despite shooting only 30.6 percent from the floor in the first half, the Lady Pioneers trailed by just six points, 33-27, going into the locker room at the break. 
 
Early in the second half, Sheridan pushed their lead out to double figures before going on a 14-2 run in just over five minutes to quickly push their lead out to 21 points by the midway point of the half.  SC would eventually push the lead out to as many as 26 before the final 24-point margin.  MCC's shooting woes continued in the second half as well, hitting just over 31 percent. 
 
The Lady Generals had four players finish in double figures, while no Lady Pioneer reach 10.  Bailey Wilson (Columbus) finished with a team-high nine points in the loss.  Grbic, who was held scoreless in the second half, and Janae Reynan (Culbertson) chipped in eight points apiece. 
 
Miles was undersized and outplayed by Sheridan College.  The visiting team outrebounded MCC 50-37 and also attempted 23 shots from the charity stripe while the Lady Pioneers only attempted four. 
 
With the loss, the Lady Pioneers are currently in fifth place in the sub region.  
 
Up next for the Lady Pioneer basketball team is a trip to Crow Agency to face Little Big Horn College on Tuesday where they look to bounce back before Western Wyoming Community College comes to town on Thursday to finish out the first half of the North sub-region schedule.
