Close Road Loss for the Lady Apaches

The Cochise College Women’s Basketball team suffered their first conference loss last night to Central Arizona 71-68.

Deezha Battle led the Apaches with 23 points. The only other scorer in double figures was Yemiyah Morris with 12 points and 7 rebounds. The Apaches shot 44% for the game, had 16 steals and 15 assists.

“This was a tough loss,” stated Coach Laura Hughes. “We did not pay attention to the details and that ended up hurting us. We gave up too many second shots and did not get stops when we needed them. Hopefully, we can learn from it and continue to grow as a team.”

The Apaches are now 6-2 overall and 1-1 in conference play. The next game for the Apaches is Saturday, December 2 at 5:30 p.m. on the Douglas campus.
