Community College of Rhode Island ran past the GCC Lady Cougars 78-69 Saturday afternoon in the first game of the Cougar Holiday Classic.
The Lady Cougars closed to within 6 points with four minutes to go in the first half, but that’s as close as it ever got. CCRI went on a run to lead at the half 47-38 and never looked back. CCRI had too much bench depth and too many three pointers for GCC to counter. Krystie Laurie scored 21 for the Lady Cougars, and Cassandra Novicky scored 26 points for CCRI, with 24 of them coming from behind the three point line.
The Lady Cougars will play in the consolation game Sunday at 11am.
