EPHRAIM—The women’s basketball team of Snow College faced off with a top-25 team and won by nine points last week.
The 64-55 win on Thursday, Jan. 25, in Ephraim was the second time this season the Lady Badgers won against College of Southern Idaho (CSI).
CSI fought at Snow’s heels for the first half of the game. Then Snow upped their game and enjoyed a 12-point lead by the end of the third quarter.
The Badgers kept their lead and finished the game with a 64-55 victory.
Kayla Hugie led the team with 19 points, followed close behind by Harley Hansen with 17 points.
“Harley Hansen is one of our best players this season because of how consistent she has been. She has been great at stepping up when one of our other players gets injured,” said Snow’s head coach, Mike Russel. Harley has led the team several times throughout the season.
Speaking of CSI, Russel said, “They are ranked in the top 25 right now, so it was a big win to beat Southern Idaho.”
Russel commented that the Lady Badgers are taking it one game at a time.
Beating CSI has given Snow a one-game lead in the conference, and Russel feels they have a good shot at winning it.
Snow College has a current winning streak of three, and the Lady Badgers have won 17 of their 22 games.
The Badgers play Colorado Northwestern Community College today at 5:30 p.m. and compete against Salt Lake Community College on Saturday at 3 p.m.
Both games will be in the Horne Activity Center in Ephraim.
