After logging many miles and playing five straight games away from Fitzsimmons-John Arena the Moberly Area Community College women’s basketball program ended their road trip by splitting a pair of contests at Penn Valley Community College and Vincennes University. The Greyhound Women went 4-1 on the five game swing and are now 15-2 overall.

On Thursday, January 5th, MACC traveled to Kansas City and took a 34-28 lead into the halftime break against Penn Valley behind the offensive output of freshmen Anisha George, Anna Stewart, and Angelica Wiggins. The trio combined to score 26 first half points.

The game remained close through the end of the third quarter as the Greyhound Women led by nine, 48-39, heading into the fourth quarter, however MACC outscored Penn Valley 29-19 over the final 10 minutes of action to pull away for a 77-58 victory.

The Greyhound Women had four players in double figures with George leading the way with 18 points and seven rebounds. Stewart finished with 15 points, four assists, and three rebounds. Wiggins scored 10 points, to go along with three assists, and Brianna Perry also scored 10 points. Romekia Wallace contributed eight points, eight rebounds, and four assists, while Nia Flowers had a team high six assists.

"I was really happy that we were able to go on the road and pick up another victory,” said head coach Chad Killinger. “We struggled a little bit early, just shaking off the rust, but once we got into the flow of the game our execution was a lot better."

MACC shot just over 50 percent from the field for the game, including 33 percent from three point range, and outrebounded Penn Valley 36-23. The Lady Scouts shot just 32 percent for the game and were three of 11 from beyond the arc.

In their final game before returning home for three straight games the Greyhound Women ran into a buzz saw at Vincennes University, falling by a score of 72-46.

"Vincennes is a good team, and they were coming off of a loss at home, so I expected this game to be extremely difficult for us,” said Killinger. “We shot the ball poorly and gave up too many easy baskets to be as competitive as we needed to be against them. But, this is an experience that we can learn from and something that should make us a better team in the long run."

Perry led MACC with 18 points and was the only player to reach double digits in the scoring column. George scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds, while Lunden Henry tallied seven points and three rebounds. Romekia Wallace led the Greyhound Women with 10 rebounds.

Vincennes shot 50 percent from the field and became just the fourth team to outrebound MACC in 17 games.
