The WTAMU Women’s Basketball squad continued their current skid to three games this past week with a loss to Abilene Christian at the First United Bank Center 81-76 on Nov. 28 before dropping a double overtime decision to Angelo State 77-71 in San Angelo on Dec. 1.
On Wednesday, despite falling behind as far as 23-16 in the first half, the Lady Buffs clawed back to keep it close going into halftime, with a score of 41-39. However, just as the Lady Buffs developed a lead early in the second half, the Wildcats ran away with the game in its last legs to give the Lady Buffs their second home loss of the season. The Lady Buffs were led by junior guard Lacee Logan with 15 points, sophomore forward Chontiquah White added 14 points and junior guard Casey Land tallied 14 points. On the other hand, ACU’s Renata Marquez led the Wildcats with 19 points, Sadie Dickinson scored 18 points and Kelsey Smith hauled in 16 points.
On Saturday, The Lady Buffs and the Rambelles of San Angelo fought a see-saw battle that had WT taking a 37-32 advantage going into the half. The Rambelles made a comeback of their own to force overtime, as both sides fought on into the second overtime before Angelo State scored 10 to WT’s 4 points. This pushed the Rambelles past the Lady Buffs in the game of attrition. Logan once again led the Lady Buffs in points, scoring 27 points while White put in 18 points.
