Lady Tigers fall to Hutch; throttle Cloud County 76-48

Two days after suffering an 84-74 home loss to Hutchinson Community College, the Cowley College women's basketball team bounced back in a big way with a 76-48 win at Cloud County Monday night in Concordia, KS.

On Saturday, Cowley trailed the Blue Dragons 36-26 at the end of the first half and maintained a 10-point deficit heading into the final quarter of play. Cowley would pull within 61-55 following a basket by Baylee Fincher with 5:51 left to play. However, Hutchinson responded with a 14-5 run to pull away for the win.

Mya Williams scored a game-high 27 points as Hutchinson (19-4) moved into a tie for second place in the Jayhawk Conference.

Fincher had 26 points in the loss.

"Baylee had a nice game on offense, but we didn't get much scoring otherwise," Cowley head coach Todd Clark said. "Defensively, we could not get consistent stops. They seemed to score whenever they felt like it."

The Lady Tigers did a good job of putting Saturday's loss behind them as they rode a big second half to a 28-point win at Cloud County on Monday.

Cowley led just 29-26 at the end of the first half, but out-scored the Lady T-Birds 47-22 over the final 20 minutes of play. Fincher again led Cowley with 28 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the floor, while adding seven assists and five steals.

"Baylee had another nice outing and continues to be a stat sheet stuffer," Clark said.

Martyna Kowalska added 14 points, nine rebounds and eight blocked shots as Cowley had four players score in double figures.

"It was an all around better performance," Clark said.

Cowley is now 13-8 overall and 9-7 in the conference. Cowley held Cloud County to 29 percent shooting as the T-Birds are now 10-12 overall and 6-10 in the conference.

The Lady Tigers will now prepare to play at No. 23-ranked Independence Saturday at 2 p.m.
