CU squeezes out Senior Day winFebruary 27, 2010
LAWTON, Oklahoma (February 27) – It was a crazy conclusion, but in the end the Cameron Aggie women’s basketball team (9-18, 5-9 LSC-N) wrapped up their 2009-2010 season with a big win this afternoon. CU splits the season series with Texas A&M-Commerce (4-22, 1-13 LSC-N) after defeating the Lions 82-80 today in the Aggie Gym in a Lone Star Conference North Division match-up.
Cameron enjoyed a double-digit lead for most of the game, but Texas A&M-Commerce actually had a chance to win it with three foul shots and no time left on the clock. CU fouled the Lions’ desperation three-point attempt at the buzzer, putting TAMU-C at the line with the scoreboard reading 0.0.
Fortunately for the Aggies and their four seniors, the Lions missed their first two free throws clinching the 82-80, Senior Day victory for the Black and Gold.
Senior guard Lyndie NeVille closed out her collegiate career with a fantastic double-double. Her 14 points on 7-10 shooting and 14 rebounds were both game-highs. She also added 2 assists and was 8-10 from the foul line.
Tera Tremayne, another of CU’s senior guards, had a phenomenal night under the boards all of her own as she contributed 9 rebounds and just missed out on yet another double-digit rebounding performance. She also added 5 points and 4 assists.
Senior post Amber Schroer chipped in 2 points and a rebound, but it was her presence down low that made the most difference. Schroer helped the Aggies stay physical under the boards allowing them to build their big first half lead.
CU’s final senior, post Caeti Radley, has been sidelined with injuries for much of the season but managed to start today’s game and contribute 2 points in just 2 minutes.
Texas A&M-Commerce won the season’s earlier match-up, an 84-78 game at Commerce in mid-January.
Today’s victory sends the Aggie women’s basketball squad into their offseason to get ready for 2010-2011. Be sure to check the Cameron Athletics website (goaggies.cameron.edu) for recruiting news throughout the offseason.
