Olympia, WA - The record is still intact. Never was it in danger of falling.
For the sixth consecutive year, since the foundation of the women's basketball program at Evergreen State College (0-3), St. Martin's (0-0) has shown they are the dominated four-year women's basketball program in Olympia, winning 82-31.
In essence tonight's game was over in the first ten points.
Senior Courtney Brandon (Pomeroy, WA / Pomeroy HS), having just complete the volleyball season five days prior, scored Evergreen's first two-points on a tip-back rebound. Unfortunately the Saints already had a ten-point lead.
The Geoducks scored again when St. Martin's reached 20 points.
"When you loose you realize you need to work a little more," said Evergreen head coach Monica Heuer. "This game was a good reality check for us." Although St. Martin's had a significant size advantage, Evergreen woes began in the shooting department. Like their first two games, the Geoducks got good looks at the basket but were unable to get the ball to go through the net. In the first 20 minutes only three of twenty-seven field goals registered for points, a dismal 11%.
In the second half shooting improved to 21%, not high enough to win a basketball game.
The dominate offensive force on the night was Saints guard Julia Eisentrout. She lead all scorers with 21 points. Lisa Bocook and Stephanie Colbo each contributed 10 additional points.
Point guard Alicia Riddle (Portland, OR) was the only Geoduck in double figures, with 16 points.
Evergreen will be in uniform a week from now (Nov 22-23), as they travel to Ellensburg, Wa, for the four team Central Washington Tournament.
