Womens+Basketball+loses+47-50+to+Waubonsee+Community+College

Hannah Masud scored 16 points as the Spartans suffered another loss to Waubonsee Community College 47-50 last Tuesday at the Events Center. 

The Spartans started well as the team scored 13 points in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the team scored 10 points, but it was enough to end the first half on a positive note as the team tied 23-23. 

At the end of the first half, Spartans’ guard, Zoey Wilson, suffered a tendonitis injury, but she returned to the game at the beginning of the second half. At halftime, Student Briana Calandria gave her perspective on the game. 

Her opinion on the game so far is that it’s pretty aggressive. Also, she’s hoping that the team will win this game. According to her, her prediction for the final score of this game is 50-42. She said that the team is communicating better but also the offense is better. 

At the beginning of the second half, the Spartans started strong and ended the third quarter 37-33. In the fourth quarter, the game was a little bit tense. The Spartans tried to win this game, but it wasn’t enough as the game ended 47-50. 

According to head coach Eumeka Aguad, she said that the team’s energy overall was better than the previous game against McHenry County College. 

“They need to be more physical by making contact,” she said. “They need to box out with contact.”

According to her, the team’s strategy for the defense was man to man, helping defense, closing out on the shooters. 

Wilson said that the team is definitely better from the previous games. She said that the team scored a lot but also they filled the empty spots and attacked the basket well. 

The team is now 6-20 on the season and their losing streak continues to 10 games.
