Two victories cap regular hoops season for CWC women

Feb 26, 2013 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

The Rustlers beat Dawson College and Little Big Horn College.

Central Wyoming College sophomore Marissa Hogan returned to her hometown Thursday night, pouring in a career-high 34 points for a 72-63 victory over Little Big Horn College at Crow Agency, Mont.

Hogan swished 10 3-pointers to help the Rustler women end the regular season on top. CWC had 12 3-pointers in the win.

The Rustlers started the long journey with a 59-45 win Wednesday night at Dawson Community College.

The two victories gave the Rustlers a No. 6 seed for the upcoming Region IX women's basketball tournament. CWC finished the regular season with a 14-16 overall record and a 7-9 league mark.

"The Dawson game was a great team effort," CWC women's basketball coach Serol Stauffenberg said.

"The Little Big Horn game turned into a Marissa Hogan shooting show. She had an unbelievable shooting night in her hometown."

Stephanie Smith scored 17 points against Dawson. Porsha Wadsworth added 15 points.

"Stephanie played very well in both games," Stauffenberg said. "I thought that our guard play was much better in both games."

CWC plays at 5 p.m. Monday vs. McCook Community College in the do-or-die Region IX tournament to be held at Scottsbluff, Neb.

"We will continue to emphasize ball control, whether it's in a half-court set or against a full-court press," Stauffenberg said. "We cannot turn the ball over and expect to win at the tournament."
