The Genesee Community College women's basketball team cruised to their first conference victory of the season, defeating Niagara County Community College 90-45 on Thursday night.

The Lady Cougars pounced early and did not let up. A 16 point first half from Chyna Lennox (Moseley, VA) helped pace a 50 point opening twenty minutes for Genesee, who out-rebounded Niagara 35-15 and took a 50-15 lead into the break.

The Genesee lead never dropped below 25 in the second half, and the Lady Cougars had four scorers reach double figures. Lennox finished with a team high 23 points, Kayla Golden (Lackawanna, NY) added 11 points and 9 rebounds, and Chelsey Cole (Brockport, NY) and Jasmine Armstead (Rochester, NY) each finished with 10 points. Nanase Akagami (Japan) also came off the bench late and added a season high 9 points.

Genesee improves to 6-14 overall on the season and 1-1 in conference play. They will take the floor again next Thursday when they host Erie Community College at 6pm.
