Central Women Come Up Short at Buena Vista

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.
