Lady Cougars Post Back-to-Back Seventy-Point Performances

Lady Basketball Cougars in action against NCCC

The Genesee Community College women's basketball team may have come up on the short end in their contest against Niagara County Community College, but the team has had one of its most productive offensive surges in its last two games.

The Lady Cougars put up 76 points in an 86-76 loss Feb. 17 to NCCC and combined with their previous game's total have averaged 73.5 points during the past two games for the most points in consecutive games when not winning this season.

Genesee got out of the gate hot while building an 8-0 lead and kept the game close at 22-20 after the opening-quarter of play. Their best quarter came in the second when the Cougars took a six-point lead into halftime by a 43-37 margin.

The Cougars stayed close and were tied in the dying seconds of the third at 58 before the Thunderwolves went on a roll to take the contest.

While the offense has been there it has also come by committee with five Cougars recording double-digit performances.

Rosalyn Sealey led the way with 21 and Kierra Perl added 14. Both Jasmine Holmes and TaLia Burgess scored 13 each, while Reika Murota added 11.

Burgess' team-leading 12 rebounds gave her a double-double, while Sealey also led the team in assists with seven and steals with four. Holmes just missed a double-double with nine boards and had a pair of blocks.

The Cougars close out their regular season home schedule against conference-leading Monroe Feb. 21 with a 5:30 p.m. tipoff. The Tribunes are also nationally-ranked at No. 1.
