On Wednesday, the Apaches traveled to Tucson, AZ to take on the Aztecs of Pima Community College. The Lady Apaches came out strong, taking a 34-12 first-half lead and holding Pima College to its lowest total in half this year. The Aztecs would keep the game close and outscore the Apaches in the second half 35-48. The contest ended in a 69-60 victory for the Apaches.
Sophomore guard Raena Suggs led the Apaches with 18 points and six steals and freshman guard Sharmayne Finley with 14 points. The Apaches have won 9 games in a row and continue to be undefeated since the new year with an overall record of 17-3.
“I was happy how we started the game with a 20 point lead at the half. However, we have to keep working to put teams away for 40 minutes. Pima is always a tough game, and it’s a good road win for our team,” Coach Laura Hughes said.
