Cougars claw Clan
The Simon Fraser University Clan women’s basketball team’s venture into NCAA Division I territory on Tuesday resulted in a 67-52 loss to the Washington State Cougars.
SFU kept up to WSU in the first half, trailing 31-28 at the intermission before the Cougars took over.
“We knew how they would play and we did not execute what we wanted to do,” said head coach Bruce Langford in a SFU press release. “We outrebounded them big in the first half which kept us close despite shooting poorly. In the second half, they took it up a notch and we did not respond.”
Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe led SFU with a game-high 22 points. Guard Kia Van Laare of New Westminster played 11 minutes and scored two points.
