Casper College Loses 1st Round Game at National Women’s Tourney
The Casper College women's basketball team went one and out at this year's NJCAA National Tournament in Lubbock, Texas with a 73-70 loss to Hutchinson, Kansas on Thursday morning. The T-Birds came into the game as the 14th seed in the tournament and Hutch was the 19th seed. Casper trailed at halftime 34-31 and was down 5 starting the 4th quarter.
The game went right down to the wire and with the T-Birds down 3 in the final seconds, they missed a pair of 3 point attempts to tie the game. Casper finishes the season at 28-5 and were led in scoring by Sandra Frau with 18 points on 8-13 from the field. Dejaan Schuler had 15 and Kate Robertson chipped in 11.
