CSC Women’s Basketball team moves to 3-16
The Chadron State women’s basketball team moves to 3-16 after losing two conference games at home this weekend.
“We still go into every game expecting to win, regardless of our record,” Head Coach Janet Raymer said.
The Eagles fell to the Adams State University Grizzlies on Friday in a close 77-74 loss. The Eagles hoped to bounce back on Saturday as they took on the Fort Lewis College Skyhawks. The Skyhawks came out on top and beat the Eagles 78-66.
Senior Kalli Feddersen of Rawlins, Wyoming, led the team in scoring on Friday with 23 points. Feddersen made 13 out of 16 free throws, which made up the bulk of her points. Freshman Taryn Foxen of Aurora, Colorado, was second in total points, scoring 17 for the night.
“She’s had some good games in the past, but she’s really becoming more consistent,” Raymer said about Foxen.
The Eagles shot at 48.1 percent on Friday, making 26 of their 54 attempted shots, their best percentage of the weekend.
Feddersen also led the team in rebounds, grabbing eight total rebounds, all on defense. Foxen grabbed six rebounds on Friday, four offensive and two defensive. Savannah Weidauer, junior of Pleasant Grove, Utah, also grabbed six rebounds, two on offense and four on defense. The Eagles rebounded 43 times during the night, 11 on the offensive side and 32 on the defensive side, their best of the weekend.
The Eagles turned the ball over 45 times this weekend while their opponents turned the ball over a total of 29 times. The Grizzlies scored 26 points off of the Eagles turnovers, while the Skyhawks scored 23. Turnovers have been a weak spot for the Eagles this season and it will continue to be a focus for them as the season continues.
“We’ve gotten better, but haven’t quite gotten where we need to be,” Raymer said.
Foxen led the Eagles in scoring on Saturday night against the Skyhawks, racking up 25 points for the night, a personal best for the weekend. Feddersen scored 16 points for the Eagles. The team shot at a 34.8 percent, making 23 of their 66 shots.
Weidauer led the team in rebounds, grabbing 11 throughout the night, two on offensive and nine on defensive. Foxen achieved her first double-double on Saturday, getting 10 rebounds, three on offensive and seven on defensive along with her 25 points. The Eagles had a total of 42 rebounds, 14 on offensive and 28 on defensive.
The Eagles are on the road for two conference games this weekend. They will take on Colorado State University-Pueblo Friday night in Pueblo, Colorado. The Eagles will then travel to Las Vegas, New Mexico, to take on New Mexico Highlands University on Saturday.
