Women’s basketball falls to Buffalo

The Falcon women’s basketball team fell to the Buffalo Bulls 88-67 on Wednesday night, as the team took its ninth straight loss of the season.

“We got off to a slow start,” Falcons head coach Jennifer Roos said. “Everything (Buffalo) shot went in and good teams make shots, we were running around in a little bit of a circle defensively trying to mix things up and they were passing around us.”

The game started with Buffalo taking a 26-17 lead in the first quarter, which they were able to add to in the beginning of the second quarter as they were able to score 11 unanswered points. Despite a late run from the Falcons, Buffalo still held the advantage going into halftime as they were up 45-27.

Despite falling behind early, the team believed that they had chances to make it closer in the first half.

“I thought we had a lot of layups that didn’t go in,” Roos said. “We rushed a lot of shots and we couldn’t get any second chance points. Buffalo did a good job of getting rebounds, they outrebounded us by 17, which is a big margin.”

Buffalo continued the momentum into the third as they held a 55-34 lead, however the Falcons were able to cut it down to 13 on a pair of three point shots from freshman center Angela Perry and sophomore guard Andrea Cecil respectively, along with a layup from senior guard Haley Puk and a jumper from junior guard Sydney Lambert. However, Buffalo was able to restore their lead by the end of the quarter as they held a 69-47 advantage going into the fourth.

In the fourth quarter, while Buffalo went up 79-54 with 3:55 to go in the game, the Falcons closed some of the gap with a three pointer and layup from freshman guard Kennedy Williams as well as a layup and free throw from sophomore center Jane Uecker with another free throw added from freshman guard Madisen Parker make it a 79-63 game. However, Buffalo still held on to take the 88-67 win.

“I appreciated the fight that our team showed in the second half compared to the first half,” Roos said. “I got a lot of good minutes from different kids, but at the end of the day Buffalo was shooting 50 percent from the field and outrebounding us by 17, doubled our points in the paint and it was pretty tough to overcome those three categories.”

The team will next play on Saturday night on the road against the Miami RedHawks.
