BIG BEND COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Office of Communications
Things were looking good for the Lady Vikes at halftime as they led 36-28 over Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) East-leading Wenatchee Valley, however, the Lady Knights came out with a vengeance in the third quarter and outscored Big Bend 22-9 and taking the lead at the 2:50 mark and never relinquishing it. WVC would hold on for the eventual 70-63 victory and now sits alone atop the NWAC East undefeated at 7-0.
Wenatchee capitalized on 21 Big Bend turnovers scoring 24 points. The Lady Vikings bested Wenatchee in almost every other statistical category.
Wenatchee Valley now has a two-game lead over Big Bend (16-4, 5-2) and North Idaho (15-4, 5-2) with Walla Walla (14-6, 4-3), who also defeated Big Bend on Monday, and Spokane (15-5, 4-4).
The Lady Vikes should be able to get back into the win column on Saturday afternoon when they host Blue Mountain at 2 p.m. inside the Peter C. DeVries Center on the Big Bend campus. The Timberwolves are currently housed in the NWAC East Region cellar with an overall record of 3-14 and a conference record of 1-6.
