#22 ranked Cochise College Women’s Basketball jumped to an early lead and finished with a 77-40 victory over Glendale. Awa Keita led all scorers with 17 points, and Yemiyah Morris chipped in 16. The Apaches continued to dominate on the defensive end. Currently, they are ranked #1 in the nation in scoring defense allowing opponents only 45 points per game. The Apaches are also ranked 3rd nationally for block shots, averaging 6.2 per game.
“Our size, athleticism, and defensive intensity continue to help us limit teams scoring,” Coach Laura Hughes said. “Glendale really spread the floor and tried to take us one on one. We did a good job of helping each other and making it difficult for them to score in the paint.”
The Apaches return home on Saturday, January 19 to take on Phoenix College. Tip-Off is set for 5:30 pm.
