The second of two games against teams from the KCAC league proved to be an uphill battle for the Lady Bobcats against a red-hot shooting Kansas Wesleyan team, as the Lady Cats fell 63-75 on Saturday evening.
The Lady Yotes hit 7-11 from the three point line in the first half, shooting 56% from the field, while the Lady Cats shot only 34% the first half. Kansas Wesleyan headed to the locker room at half-time with a 47-31 advantage and plus eleven in the rebounding column.
The Lady Cats made a second half run to get the score to within 5 on two separate occasions, but the Yotes rebounded and worked their way back to a double-digit lead. The Cats held Kansas Wesleyan to second-half shooting of only 24%, but managed just 32% themselves. A bright spot for the Lady Cats was only six turnovers for the game.
Leading the Lady Cats was junior guard Hannah Wisdom, who went 10-21 from the floor, tallying 22 points, and picking up 4 rebounds. Sophomore center Maison Bovard was 4-7 with 9 points and 6 rebounds. Sophomore center Lakin Simmerman was held to only 4 points, but gathered a team-leading 8 rebounds for the Cats.
The Lady Bobcats hope to return to their winning ways as they head home to take the court on Tuesday, November 3rd, at 7 PM in the Keeter Gymnasium against Missouri Baptist University.
