The LCC women’s basketball team was just barely defeated, 54-52 by Ancilla College, on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at LCC.

The first half ended with LCC down 27-17. The Stars came almost all the way back with a 35-27 second half, which left LCC with the two-point loss.

LCC Head Coach Layne Ingram said he was proud of his team, regardless of the outcome.

“(I’m) just really proud of the effort by the team last night; they played hard and never quit,” Ingram said. We were (a) couple of rebounds and shots away from a win. That’s what you want, a chance.”

LCC had three players in double figures. Guard Oliva Gean led the way with 15 points, followed by guard Riley Merryfield, who finished with 14 points and five rebounds. Guard/forward Alivia Densmore added 10 points.

Despite the loss, Ingram mentioned there were positives to come from it during the comeback effort.

“You always want to win, but from where we finished last time we played them, this was (a) positive improvement,” Ingram said. “We kept our composure and didn’t quit. (We) fought back and had a chance to win. Sometimes you don’t win.”

The loss brought the Lady Stars’ record to 5-18 on the year and to 1-8 in the conference. There are three games remaining in the regular season.

The next game for LCC will be at Lake Michigan College on Saturday, Feb. 18.

Lake Michigan College beat the Lady Stars 64-56 earlier this season. LCC will be looking to even the regular season series with a victory on Saturday.
