After a one-day delay due to flooding at Eastern Arizona College, #21 ranked Cochise College women’s basketball cruised to a 68-42 victory over the Gila Monsters. Four players scored in double figures for the Apaches. Leading the way was LaPraisjah Johnson with 15 points. Awa Keita added 13 points and Jazzy Hughes, Kayla Harris chipped in with 11 points each.
“It was a little different playing at a local Thatcher High School and not having our regular weekly schedule,” Coach Laura Hughes said. “However I thought our team did a good job of keeping their focus and once again playing great defense.”
The Apaches continue to be ranked #21 in Division 1 poll and lead the nation in scoring defense. They now hold a three-game lead in their quest for a conference championship.
The Apaches return home to take on Mesa College Saturday, February 9. Tip-off is set for 5:30 pm.
