Weatherford College outclasses Midland in Region V match

Bre Brooks jumpstarts WC offense with 17 first-half points


Beyond Midland College scoring the first points of the contest  and playing hard for 40 minutes, there was little else to claim as the Lady Chaparrals were mauled by the Weatherford College Lady Coyotes in a contest much more one-sided than the score indicated.

A very active Bre Brooks and nifty passing to the lane by the rest of the WC contingent put the game  out of reach before the half, as Weatherford won the first round of the National Junior College Athletic Association Region V Tournament, 97-77. The tourney is being held at Lubbock Christian University.

In a game that saw WC head coach Bob McKinley empty the bench, Brooks provided the spark for the Lady Coyotes offensive display, scoring 17 points in the first half. Brooks was content feeding the ball to her teammates in the second half, with six WC women scoring in double figures.

“Anybody can score on this team,” Brooks said. There are a lot of different things we can do on offense.”

Proving up Brooks’ assessment of her team, six Lady Coyotes put up double figures. Brooks finished with 24 points. 

WC shooting was torrid from the start of the contest, with three players pouring in eight 3-point shots while invading the lane, as well. Like Brooks, Itiana Taylor did most of her damage in the first half, scoring 15 of her 17 points.

Frustration set in early for the Midland cagers. The attempts to get the offense on track with shots from the perimeter were off the mark and they had little luck in the paint with Taylor, Toma Zaleckaite and Zippy Khasoa owning the boards through much of the opening half.

To Midland’s credit, the scoring levelled out in the second half as the outside shooting heated up and WC starter’s were rested toward the end of the contest.
