USW 74, Bacone 55
The Lady Warriors (3-7, 2-4) struggled defensively, particularly against the Lady Mustangs’ Anika Hostos. The 5-foot-4 junior sank 9-of-20 shots from 3-point range as part of her game-high 35 points.
“She outshot us,” coach Robbie Shay said. “When you don’t show up and play defense, you’re not going to win ballgames.”
By comparison, Bacone only made 4-of-16 shots from 3-point range.
Destinee Duncan was the lone Warrior to score in double figures with 11.
“We didn’t pick her up from the beginning of the game,” Duncan said about the defense. “We just didn’t stop her. We didn’t come ready to play.”
Nikki Sylvester scored 11 and Johnnelle Kapua added 10 for the Lady Mustangs (6-10, 3-5).
