SF WOMEN’S BASKETBALL HILLSBOROUGH HANDS SAINTS FIRST MFC LOSS OF THE SEASON

 

Blue BasketballGainesville, FL – Playing shorthanded once again Saturday afternoon in Tampa, the Saints weren’t able to rally after falling behind early and fell to the Hillsborough CC Hawks 81-75.  The loss ends a 13 game SF winning streak and is the first loss for the Saints since December 2016.

The Saints (17-6, 10-1 MFC) fell despite 32 points from leading scorer Arianna Emanuel-Wright.

Hillsborough lead at halftime and a 30 point third quarter was still not enough to get SF all the way back in it.

Santa Fe College struggled from the free throw line, missing 19 out of 35 attempts.

Tabitha Odabe 14, Evelina Avleeva 13, and Tatiyana Rock 10 joined Emanuel-Wright in double figures.

The Saints will be back at home Wednesday, Feb. 15 against Florida State College-Jacksonville at 6 p.m.
