Aggies can't ring Belles for winDecember 15, 2008
LAWTON, Oklahoma (December 15) – Cameron’s women’s basketball team (4-4, 0-0 LSC) dropped back to .500 on the season after losing tonight’s home game against a strong Angelo State Rambelles team (6-5, 0-0 LSC). ASU won this evening’s match-up 86-63 in a hard-fought contest. The Aggies have alternated wins and losses this entire season and now have one game remaining this semester.
“We played hard but we need to function better as a team,” Head Coach Tom Webb said. “Sometimes when you are pressing hard a few kids aren’t in the right position.”
Cameron shot a 33.9% shooting percentage while recording 29 rebounds and 24 turnovers, and Angelo State shot a 45.1% shooting percentage while recording 44 rebounds and 25 turnovers. Four Aggies and three Rambelles recorded a double-digit point total.
The Aggies began the game in the lead but were ahead for the final time with 10:15 left in the first half. ASU took over and built a commanding thirteen-point lead at halftime. Cameron was never able to regain the lead.
Sophomore guard Constance “C.C.” Rundles led the Aggies offensively with a team-high 12 points on 4-7 shooting. She also recorded 3 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal, and a block in 28 minutes of play.
Freshman guard Bobbi Coleman also had a nice night, especially on the foul line where she was 6-8, as she finished with 11 points on 2-10 shooting and 5 rebounds, a block, and a steal in 22 minutes.
“Bobbi has been playing very hard for us,” Coach Webb said. “Now we need a game where we get a great game from the whole team at once.”
Both junior forward Megan Atkins and sophomore guard Haley Dunn finished with 10 points for CU. Atkins went 3-8 from the floor with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and a block in 26 minutes, while Dunn finished on 3-4 shooting with 4 rebounds, 2 steals, an assist, and a block in 23 minutes.
Cameron next hosts the Abilene Christian Wildcats this Wednesday (December 17) evening at 6:00pm in the Aggie Gym. The Aggies will then be off for the better part of a month while Cameron University is closed for the holiday break.
“We will definitely want to win our last game before break and leave on a good note,” Coach Webb said. “We will continue to play hard. We need to battle and see what we can do.”
