The Wells College women's basketball team played a strong first quarter but eventually fell to visiting Cazenovia College 71-50 in a North Eastern Athletic Conference game Wednesday, Jan. 10 at the Schwartz Athletic Center.
Wells held a 13-4 lead after the opening quarter before Cazenovia found its offensive touch and scored 52 points over the second and third quarters to take a commanding lead.
The Wells defense held Cazenovia without a basket until 7:21 remaining in the second quarter. That layup sparked an 18-4 run for the Wildcats. Cazenovia led 32-30 at halftime.
Wells was 7-for-8 at the free-throw line in the game.
In the previous meeting between the teams this season, Wells won 50-46 at Cazenovia on Dec. 2.
Wells is 2-10 overall and 1-3 in the NEAC. Cazenovia is 4-6 overall and also 1-3 in the conference.
Wells continues NEAC play this weekend with a pair of road games. The Express will play Saturday, Jan. 13 at Gallaudet University and Sunday, Jan. 14 at Penn State Abington.
