Cougars scratch Clan

The Simon Fraser University Clan women’s basketball team’s venture into NCAA Division I territory on Tuesday resulted in a 67-52 loss to the Washington State Cougars.

SFU kept up to WSU in the first half trailing 31-28 at the intermission before the Cougars took over.

“We knew how they would play and we did not execute what we wanted to do,” said head coach Bruce Langford in a SFU press release. “We outrebounded them big in the first half which kept us close despite shooting poorly. In the second half, they took it up a notch and we did not respond.”

Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe led SFU with a game-high 22 points.
