Women's NCCAA Regionals
2/25 - The women’s basketball squad was hoping to ride the role of underdog in their post-season NCCAA Championship Tournament run this past weekend.
However, Providence came out with a renewed energy in the face of adversity and were able to put together a much better second half. With a more calmed and effective approach the Lady Freemen were actually able to turn the game around and outscore the Rams by five in the second half. But the first half deficit still left the game out of reach for Providence, Rams winning the game 76-49.
The Rams went on to defeat Trinity Bible College in the finals by a 58-54 score to win the North-Central Regional Championship.
Sophomore Sonia Radi led the squad with 28 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists. Freshmen Kristina Larson (9 points, 4 rebounds) and Chelsea Bobychuk (6 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists) both also had solid outings for the Lady Freemen.
While Lady Freemen head coach Patti Parker wished her squad could have competed better in the first half, she left the weekend content with the way her squad fought back and controlled the final 20 minutes of the game.
“We were happy with how we played after the halftime break,” Parker says. “It was an exciting weekend of basketball, and there is still a lot that our team took away from it.”
