NECC Women Lose In First Round Of NJCAA Tournament
Posted: 19 March, 2013
SALINA, KS - The Northeast Community College women’s basketball team competed against Weatherford College in the first round of the NJCAA national tournament yesterday morning in Salina, KS.
The Lady Hawks trailed most of the game, but were able to pull within two points at 70-68 with just under 40 seconds to go in the game. NECC had a chance to tie the game with 16 second left, but were unable to hit a shot. The Lady Hawks were forced to foul with 3.5 second left, and the Lady Coyotes hit both free throws, making the score 72-68. That would be the final as a desperation heave from Northeast was no good. NECC ends their season at 28-5 overall.
