After falling at home on Monday, the Concordia College women’s basketball team came back with a vengeance Tuesday, as they dominated the Spring Hill Badgers 67-50.

The Hornets (7-4) relied on team basketball to defeat the Badgers (2-2).

“We played together as a team tonight,” said Kimberly Anderson, Concordia women’s head coach. “We moved the ball aggressively. We were just a little more determined to win.”

The Hornets came out strong and would take a 41-26 lead into halftime.

Concordia would pick up right where it left off, as Rashida Young fueled the Hornets offense.

Concordia also relied on stifling defense to get the win, as they held Spring Hill to 31 percent shooting from the field and forced 21 Badgers’ turnovers.

The Hornets also moved the ball well on the night, with 16 assists as a team.

Another big part in the Hornets’ win was winning the battle of the boards, as they snagged 42 rebounds, including 11 on the offensive end.

Young led the Hornets on the night with 20 points, six assists and five rebounds. April Bradford led Spring Hill with 14 points. The Hornets will take the court again Wednesday, Nov. 30 at home when they play Southern University at New Orleans at 3:30 p.m.
