Lady Cougars Run Record to 7-2 in WNYAC/Region III

The Lady Cougars went 2-1 in conference games last week to run its record to 7-2 in the region and 17-5 overall. Against Mercyhurst NE, the team was down by four at the half after trailing by as many as twelve. The MNE zone frustrated the team and the Lady Saints knocked down six three-pointers in the half. GCC turned up the pressure in the second half and held the Lady Saints to just five field goals, none from behind the arc. Antionetta Young led Genesee with 22 points and seven rebounds. Danielle McCray recorded a double-double with 13 points and 13 boards and Latoya Anderson was nearly perfect as she hit 3 out of 4 from the floor and 6 out of 6 from the free throw line for her 12 points.

Free throw shooting was the difference in the team's win against Jamestown. The Lady Cougars connected on 19 of 21 from the charity stripe in the second half to seal the win. It was the first game all season that the Lady Cougars did not hit a shot from three-point range. JCC knocked down nine shots from behind the arc to keep it close. Young led all scorers with 33 points. She also secured eight boards and had six steals. McCray scored 12 points to go along with her 16 boards. Stephanie Darden chipped in with 12 points, six assists, and four steals.

GCC lost its rematch with Monroe. It was an eight point game with about 2 ½ minutes to go in the first half when MCC went on a 13-0 run to close the half. Young again led the team with 14 points and six rebounds. Genesee is currently ranked 13th in the NJCAA Division II national poll.
