Orcas can't overcome late rally vs #6 Everett
Bellingham, Washington. – Women’s basketball faced their toughest test of the season on Wednesday night as they hosted #6 ranked Everett Community College Trojans inside the Pavilion. Despite the difference in records between the two programs, the Orcas played hard and controlled the glass en route to a six point lead entering the fourth quarter. Allison Hadaway paced WCC on offense with 23 points on 58.8% shooting from the floor. Standout freshman, Elissa Vreugdenhil posted another double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds, seven of which came on the offensive end.
Everett was able to overcome the six point deficit behind 10 fourth quarter points from center Uju Chibuogwu. Chibuogwu also contributed four rebounds and two assists during the late rally.
