BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Western Washington University proved to be a formidable foe for the Lewis-Clark State College women’s basketball team on Saturday night at the 13th annual Lynda Goodrich Classic. The NCAA D-II Vikings handled the Warriors 75-43.
Pressured by the strong defense of the host school, the Warriors had an off night from the field and ended up shooting only 30.8 percent (16-of-52) in the game. Western Washington, on the other hand, shot 48.1 percent overall including a 12-for-17 clip from 3-point territory.
The loss snaps the Warriors’ five-game win streak and brings them to 7-2 overall. LCSC went 1-1 during the Lynda Goodrich Classic.
For the first time this season, all Warrior players were held below 10 points. Jasmine Stohr got the closest to reaching double-digits as she had nine points and had three rebounds. Alyssa Fierro had six points, six rebounds, and two blocks; and Kirsi Voshell had five points, a game-high seven rebounds, and two blocks.
Nikki DePeel was hindered by four early fouls and finished with only two points and a steal, but she was named to the all-tournament team for her 21-point performance in LCSC’s win over Saint Martin’s on Friday.
Up next on LCSC's schedule is a trip to McMinnville, Ore., to take on Linfield College on Dec. 4, followed by a game in Newberg, Ore., against George Fox College on Dec. 5. Both game times are set for 6 p.m.
