Woods 23 not enough to topple Moutaineers

OLYMPIA, Wash.  -- Junior guard Latrina Woods tallied a career-high 23 points, but it wasn't enough for The Evergreen State College women's basketball team as it fell, 59-54, to visiting Eastern Oregon University on Friday night.

The Mountaineers trailed 24-14 with 5:03 to go in the first half when coach Angie Weissenfluh called a timeout after an Evergreen basket had extended the Geoducks lead to double digits.  Evergreen (2-6, 0-1 in the Cascade Collegiate Conference) never scored again in the half as Eastern (6-3, 1-0) took a one-point lead in to the break and went on to the victory.

Post Ashlee Michelson led the Mounties attack with 18 points and also grabbed 9 rebounds.

Eastern's leading scorer for the season, Tana Stickney, got off to a slow start, but got to double figures by the end with 11 and also snagged six rebounds. For the Geoducks, Woods did her damage with 10-of-16 shooting while Chelsey Nill, started in place of an ill Alex Saab, added 11 and had six rebounds. Evergreen returns to action Saturday night against College of Idaho at 5:30 p.m. in the Greenhouse.
