WBB Falls to Occidental on the Road

WBB Falls to Occidental on the Road

The Bristol Bears Women's Basketball Team traveled to Los Angeles on Tuesday to take on the Tigers of Occidental College. The game got off to a fast pace with both teams applying pressure defense from the tip-off. Unfortunately this had an adverse affect on the Bears, as the pressure defense from Oxy forced them into 24 turnovers, and they capitalized in transition in the first half to open up a 32- 15 lead by the break. In the second half, Bristol was able to increase the amount of points scored from the first half to 25 pts., however it was not enough as the Tigers were able to hold off the Bears for a 63-40 victory. Newcomer Ashley Hernandez led the Bears in scoring with 13 points, and 7 rebounds, while Jessica Phillips added 10 rebounds in the defeat. The Bears next game is on the road at La Verne University, on Wednesday, December 2nd, at 7:30 p.m. Goooo Bears!
