Lady Cougars unleash 18-2 scoring run to capture Jayhawk West victory

As been the case on numerous occasions for this year’s Barton Community College women’s basketball team, the Lady Cougars unleashed another big scoring run to defeat Butler Community College 60-53 Wednesday night at the Barton Gym.  Trailing by five with nine minutes to play, Barton went on an 18-2 run in the next six minutes to get the win and solidify their hold on fifth place in the Jayhawk West standings.  Improving to 6-6 in conference and 16-10 overall, the Lady Cougars travel to Hutchinson Saturday for a 5:30 p.m. tilt against the No. 2 ranked Blue Dragons.  Butler, whose loss places them into a tie for seventh place with Pratt, drops to 3-8 in conference play and 14-11 overall.

Leading three Lady Cougars in scoring was Blair Bloomfield with sixteen on six-of-twelve shooting from the floor. Raven Anderson scored thirteen while Netanya Jackson recorded a double-double with thirteen points and eleven rebounds to go along with five blocks.  It was the fourth time this season Jackson has rejected five shots in a game, the last coming just a week ago against Dodge City.  Erin Copeland, despite scoring only three points, dished out a career high eleven assists. 

Jamillah Bonner led two Butler players in double figures as ten players scored two or more points.  Bonner, who has scored in double digits in every game this season other than the Grizzlies season opener, scored fourteen points and grabbed a team high 7 rebounds while Tonya Elliott-Salas scored eleven.
