Lady Cougar Cagers Have Three-Game Win Streak Snapped at NCCC Tourney
The Genesee Community College women’s basketball team had its three-game winning streak snapped at the Niagara County Community College Tournament Classic Dec. 16-17.
The Cougars dropped a pair of 11-point losses to George Brown Dec. 16 and Frederick Community College Dec. 17.
In the 71-60 loss to George Brown, Genesee had four players hit double-digits in points with TaLia Burgess leading the way with 20. The current National Junior College Athletic Association Region III Player of the Week also co-led the Cougars in points with Rosalyn Sealey in the 59-48 loss to Frederick.
Against George Brown, Sealey, Titilopemi Olusola, and Chevaneese Millington combined for 33 points with Sealey scoring 13, Olusola adding 10 and Millington registering 11 points to go with Burgess’ 20-point performance.
Millington came closest to a double-double with nine rebounds to co-lead the team with Estella Anderson. Sealey had a team-high four assists in a game where the Cougars deserved better after out-scoring the Huskies in two of the last three quarters after playing the first quarter even at 12 apiece.
Against Frederick, Sealey shared the team lead in three categories including points, rebounds and assists. The lone Cougar sophomore tied Burgess in points with 13, tied Anderson in rebounds with eight, and tied Sierra Chudy in assists with four.
Genesee closes out the semester with its best play of the season by going 3-2 in the last week.
