Pilots Flight Report: Women's Basketball - February 13

The Pilots entered the MCAC championships holding the 2 seed, sitting in the middle of the three team tournament. With only 7 points dividing the Blazers from the Pilots in their head to head tie break, Providence was forced into the dreaded semi-final game against Red River. The Rebels on their home court is always a challenge and they hadn’t lost at home this season.

Game #1
GAME: Providence vs Red River
SCORE: L 58-51
DATE: 2/13/2020
LOCATION: Red River College

PILOTS KEY CONTRIBUTORS:
Hannah Van Schie: 17 Points, 6 Rebounds
Trinity Blair: 9 Points, 1 Rebound, 2 Assists, 1 Steal

FROM THE COACH:
“Nothing in basketball is a guarantee and no matter how much work you put in, sometimes it doesn’t go your way. We prepared for Red River and felt good heading into the game. I think we played a fairly good game, but weren’t aggressive enough and missed some open shots that we normally make. Ultimately our downfall was Red River’s ability to offensive rebound, giving them second chance points, and a few untimely turnovers. If we can take care of rebounding on our end of the court and improve our offensive movement, we will have a better outcome the next time we play them. Our next challenge is to switch gears towards the NIAC Championships in Bemidji, this weekend. Our first opponent will be Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College, who has struggled this season. In single elimination, you can’t take anyone lightly. If we are able to advance past them, the likeliest scenario has us facing Red River in a semi-final rematch. Our goal is to get back to the finals and defend our 2019 championship.” Joel Coursey

NEXT UP: Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College (NIAC Championships)
DATE: 2/21/2020
