Lady Trojans looking for strong second semester

Lady Trojans looking for strong second semester
Coach Rich Holden and the Lady Trojan basketball team are looking to build off of some of the momentum they generated right before winter break to pick up some more wins in the spring. The Trojans are 3-12 (0-3) but finished December on a high note, pushing Frank Phillips (8-5) to the buzzer before a last second shot rattled out and the Trojans fell 61-59. Despite the loss the Trojans proved they are capable of playing with top NJCAA competition, a thought they hope to carry onto the court in 2016.
 
"There is nothing more frustrating than playing good basketball and not being able to win games," commented Holden. "Our program has been doing that for about a year now. One of our mottos is that if you just keep playing good basketball the winning will happen. We have a great group of young ladies who are committed to that principle, so hopefully things will click and we can start winning some games."
 
On the season the Trojans are fairly balanced in scoring, led by sophomore Holly Woodbury who is averaging almost seven points a game. Freshman post Baylee Robinson has been pulling in nearly five rebounds a game and freshman point guard Tammarrah Gothard has averaged 2.3 assists.
 
The Trojans first contest of the spring semester will be against Northwest Kansas Tech on Tuesday, January 12. The Trojans fell to the Mustangs twice on the road in the fall semester, but will have a chance to pick up a win in the friendly confines of Scott Gym. In fact, after playing only five of their first 15 games on the road, TSJC will now play six of their next eight at home. Tip off on Tuesday is set for 5 p.m. at Scott Gym.

1/12 – Northwest Kansas Tech – 5pm
1/19 – Lamar CC – 5pm
