Despite placing four players in double figures, the Central College women’s basketball team came up just short in their season finale, as the Dutch fell 68-64 to Buena Vista on Saturday.
Central opened the game with a lead and stayed in front for the game’s opening minutes before the Beavers took the lead and held the Dutch at bay to take a 36-34 halftime lead. After that the Beavers maintained at least a one-point lead for the remainder of the game.
Central’s Haley Brillhart and AJ Baker led the team in scoring with 12 points apiece, with Brillhart adding a team-best 9 rebounds and 3 blocks.
The Central women finish the 2010-2011 season with an overall record of 5-20 and were 2-14 in the Iowa Conference.
