Pilots Flight Report: Women's Basketball - January 31 & February 1

This past weekend had great importance on the standings of both the MCAC and NIAC playoff race. The Pilots would conclude their regular season with the pair of games, while CMU must travel to Turtle Mountain next weekend to face a strong Mighty Mickonocks team. The likeliest outcome being a split decision where point differential would break the tie, the Red River Rebels waited in anticipation of who their MCAC first round matchup would be against.

FROM THE COACH:
“In a lot of ways, our regular season builds up to this matchup up with CMU. I think we both appreciate seeing each other at this state of our seasons. I know we look forward to it, especially in the years where so much rests on the outcomes. I think we executed our game plan on both nights, but were unable to sustain it on Friday night. We felt, we were in the drivers seat for 35 minutes before the wheels fell off. I was impressed with our response on Saturday. We came back 12 points and took control with our defense, holding them to 5 points in the 4th quarter. The biggest difference was how we finished the game. With one weekend left of regular season action, we enter our bye week to heal up and prepare for a month of playoffs, starting with the MCAC Championships.” Joel Coursey

PLAYER’S VIEW:
“After falling apart in the final minutes of Fridays game and suffering a tough loss, we knew that we had to play tougher Saturday. Better rebounding, shot selection, and a sense of urgency led us to a big victory on CMU’s home court. We left everything on the floor, and it showed.” Hannah Van Schie

NEXT UP: MCAC Championships
DATE: February 13 & 15
LOCATION: Red River College
