WNCC women stay unbeaten with 91-68 win over Las Vegas Heat
 December 1, 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Jess Samorodova poured in 31 points and the Western Nebraska Community College women’s basketball team improved to 10-0 with an impressive win 91-68 against the Las Vegas Heat in the second day of the Air Force Prep tournament on Friday.
               
WNCC coach Dave Harnish said they shot the ball a lot better against the Heat then they did on Thursday against the Adam College junior varsity. The Cougars converted on nine 3-pointers, led by Shalisa Moffitt with three treys and Samorodova and Laurin Rivera with two each.
               
“The first half we struggled a little bit defensively. They are a good team with some height,” Harnish said. “We then scored a lot better in the second half.”
               
Samorodova, the 6-foot-3 post player from Russia had a season-best score of 31 points followed by Moffit with 11 points and Jessica Aratani with 10 points. Kelsey Doddridge followed with nine points, while Mikayla Brower and Rivera each had seven points.
               
The Cougars will finish off the Air Force Prep Classic on Saturday at 4 p.m. when they face the host school. The Cougars will then return home to host the Lady Cougar Holiday Classic beginning Thursday when they face Colby Community College at 7 p.m.
