Women’s Basketball Loses Close One to Columbus State
February 8, 2020 – – LCCC’s Women’s Basketball team took charge early in their game against Columbus State Community College and played with one of the top teams in the OCCAC conference before faltering in the final minutes on the way to a tough 60-49 loss. Earlier this year, the Cougars defeated the Commodores 83-55.
One big reason for the continued improvement by LCCC is the play of freshman forward, Vanecia Billings (Lorain/Clearview). Billings registered her fifteenth double-double this season, grabbing 16 caroms and scoring 13 points. In 22 games this season, she has only three with less than 10 boards.
Brandyce Smith (Lorain/Clearview) had nine points, while Azzia Moore (Cleveland/Cleveland JFK) added eight. Bri Gallagher (Medina/Cloverleaf) led LCCC with four assists and three steals. Kelsey Gannon (Avon) and Kelsey Simmerly (Avon Lake) each had eight rebounds.
The loss takes the Commodores to a 6-17 overall record and to 2-6 in the conference. The Cougars move to 15-5 and 6-2 in the OCCAC. LCCC hosts Division II Cuyahoga Community College for their next OCCAC matchup at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, February 12, 2020.
