The LCC women’s basketball team came out on the losing end of a tightly contested game vs. Niagara County Community College, 55-51, on Sunday, Dec. 18 in Lansing. The loss was the third in a row for the Lady Stars.
LCC guard/forward Alivia Densmore spoke about the close margin of victory for Niagara.
“They were a good team,” Densmore said. “We fought hard and played well, but the end of the game didn’t go our way.”
Densmore led the Stars in scoring and rebounding, totaling 16 points and nine rebounds. Guard Olivia Gean added 10 points of her own for LCC, while forward Taylor Titus collected eight rebounds for the Stars.
Both LCC and Niagara shot a low percentage from the field. LCC shot 32.7 percent, while Niagara shot 35.5 percent.
“Defensively we had one of our best games, but some of our shots wouldn’t fall,” Densmore said.
The loss to Niagara brings the Lady Stars’ record down to 3-8 on the year, with conference play beginning in January.
The game marks the last of 2022 for the Lady Stars and the start of the team’s holiday break.
