Big night for CWC post player in women's win

Dec 4, 2012 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

Freshman Stephanie Smith recorded a triple-double for Central Wyoming College in a 72-45 victory over the Jamestown College junior varsity women�s basketball team Saturday in a tournament at Miles City, Mont.

The 6-foot-6 center blocked 13 shots, yanked in 15 rebounds, and scored 10 points in 31 minutes of work.

Smith had eight offensive rebounds and seven defensive rebounds.

Tina Hosea had game-high efforts for CWC with 21 points.

Williston State handed the CWC men�s team its first setback of the season with a 72-58 win in Miles City. The Rustlers crushed the Jamestown junior varsity squad 87-61 in the next game.

�A triple-double isn�t that something happens a lot, so I was excited for Stephanie,� CWC women�s coach Serol Stauffenberg said. �I liked it even more that she earned half of it on the defensive side of the floor.�

Smith was only called for one foul in the 40-minute game.

�Stephanie�s ability to block shots and stay out of foul trouble is the biggest asset she brings to the team,� Stauffenberg said. �This isn�t the first time that she has been in double digits for blocked shots.�

The CWC women lost a heartbreaking 56-55 decision to Williston State Friday night. Hosea had an opportunity to win the game, but her last-second shot didn�t drop.

The Rustlers were down by 17 points before the comeback came up short at the end.

�I thought that we played an excellent last 10 minutes to get back into it,� Stauffenberg said.

The Rustlers open Region IX play at Northwest College on Wednesday night in Powell.

CWC men split

In the loss to Williston, the Rustlers were behind 10 points but came back to close the gap to within two.

�We did not shoot the ball very well against Williston State,� CWC men�s coach Shelby Lindley said �We missed way to many chip shots. Williston State is a very good team.�

The Rustlers couldn�t retake the lead at the end and fell by 14 points. Armani Flannigan led the scorers with 18 points and 12 rebounds.

In the 26-point win over the Jimmies, CWC was up 45-27 at the break and cruised in the second half. Flannigan netted 21 points, and point guard Davion Pearson had 11.

CWC plays at Northwest College Wednesday night to start Region IX play.

�We are excited to start league play,� Lindley said. �We are in a very deep league.�
