Women's Basketball Falls In Exhibition Play to Nebraska

Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Sunday's exhibition game against Nebraska was not one the Pitt State Women's basketball team was supposed to win, but it was a game for the Gorillas to see how they play together and what they need to work on before the regular season begins. Though the team lost, 98-47, the team was able to accomplish those things.

Coach Lord and his staff saw good things from junior transfer Antqunita Reed, as Reed scored 12 points on the day. Junior All-American Lizzy Jeronimus added 11 points. Sophomore Kylie Gafford proved she can be a strong rebounder for the Gorillas as she pulled down nine rebounds against the bigger Division I team. After seeing limited action last season, Cathy Brugman scored five points for the Gorillas but also had four rebounds, two blocks, two steals and an assist.

As a team, the Gorillas took care of the ball well, recording only 12 turnovers in the game. One area where the team particularly struggled was long-range shooting, as they were 2-for-23 on the day, only of those coming in the last two minutes of the game. 

The Gorillas return to action on Wednesday as they travel to Lawrence, Kan. to take on the University of Kansas Jayhawks at 8 p.m.
