Lady Cougars combine defense with timely offense in defeating Colby

Much like their previous meeting in January, the Barton Community College women’s basketball team used big runs to break open a close game in defeating Colby Community College 68-51 Saturday night at the Barton Gym.   Barton put together a 15-0 first half run then combined it with a 15-2 second half run to get victory and even their conference mark at 7-7 and improve to 17-11 overall, while Colby drops to 4-10 in the West and 8-20 overall.  The Lady Cougars will take to the road for Wednesday’s conference game as they take on the Pratt Community College Lady Beavers.  Barton will look for revenge in the 6:00 p.m. rematch as Pratt won the first contest 53-46 at the Barton Gym. 

Shea Shoemaker came off the Barton bench to lead the Lady Cougars in scoring with twelve points.  Dionne Harris and Blair Bloomfield each scored ten with Bloomfield leading the team with eight rebounds.  Raven Anderson dished out a team high six assists to go along with seven points from the field.

The international duo of Liga Vente and Katarina Popovic led Colby in scoring with fifteen and thirteen points respectively.  Popovic also grabbed a team high eight rebounds in sharing the honor with Emily Torson.
