GALESBURG—The Carl Sandburg College women’s basketball was unable to pick up its third straight win after falling 60-57 to South Suburban on Saturday at John M. Lewis Gymnasium.
Freshman forward Destini Bollinger (Astoria) and sophomore guard Makenzie Frank (Knoxville) each scored 13 to lead the Chargers (9-16), who led 29-27 at halftime. Freshman forward Lexa Mahr (Macomb) added 12 points, and freshman forward Marysa Remick (ROWVA) scored 11 for Sandburg.
The Chargers had a chance to tie in the closing seconds, but Remick’s 25-foot 3-point attempt at the buzzer came up short. Ashley Huddleston scored a game-high 21 for the Bulldogs (18-11).
“The fact that we had three shots to tie in the last 30 seconds really tells how hard we played on the defensive end of the floor,” Sandburg coach Mike Bailey said. “We really struggled shooting the ball and had a few turnovers when it really was an important time in the game.”
Sandburg returns to Arrowhead Conference play at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday as it hosts Black Hawk on Sophomore Night. The Chargers close the regular season at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Kishwaukee.
