KANKAKEE, IL â€“ The Ancilla College womenâ€™s basketball team suffered their worst half of basketball this year as NJCAA #3 Kankakee Community College won 105-52 on Saturday.
The Lady Chargers (2-3) trailed 60-22 at the half and were outshot 45-27 in that frame.
â€śUp to this game, it had been our defense that kept us in games, but it was clear from the start that Kankakee was on a different level than we are currently,â€ť said Ancilla head coach Dave Liverance.Â â€śThis is by far the best Kankakee team I have seen in my years at Ancilla College.â€ť
Kankakee (6-0) was absolutely dominant on the boards, outrebounding Ancilla 56-16.
Six different players reached double figures in scoring for Kankakee, led by Demetria Ward with 19 points and 15 rebounds.
Ancilla was led by Meghan Brown with 11 points.
â€śWe must learn to play at a quicker pace, get stronger in the weight room, and develop into better shooters if we are going to compete not only for a conference championship but at the national level as well,â€ť said Liverance.
Ancilla will open conference play on Wednesday when they travel to Lansing, MI, to play MCCAA Western Conference rival Lansing Community College.Â Tipoff is at 7:00 p.m. EST.
