Lady Wolves Come Up Short
January 16, 2012
Despite 15 points and 10 rebounds from Nadirah Brown and 10 points from Aerie DeJesus, Cheyney fell 66-49 to Millersville.
The Wolves were only down 10 at intermission. Despite having shot only 25% from the field. It was the Cheyney trademark tough defense and rebounding that kept the faithful hope alive. Cheyney out-rebounded the taller Marauders 28-24 during the first 20 minutes.
Cheyney shot much better in the second half (11-26 (42%)) but could not get over the hump and cut into the Marauders lead. With the lead still at 10 points four minutes into the final period the Marauders went on an 8-1 run to stretch the lead to 17 points (46-29) from which the Lady Wolves were not able to overcome.
Cheyney will travel to Kutztown on Wednesday night.
