Eagles hold off Wildcats

Eagles hold off Wildcats

The Wildcats headed to Northern New Mexico College on Friday for the first of two contests against the Eagles.

The host Eagles used a strong first half to take a 40-30 lead into the break. In the second half, the Wildcats came out of the gate with a bit more momentum and were able to keep pace with the Eagles. Despite their efforts to put together a late rally, Northern New Mexico was able to grab the 71-60 win from JWU.

Brianna Aluya (Placentia, Calif.) led all players with 21 points and Salma Oros (Buckeye, Ariz.) had seven rebounds. 

JWU and Northern New Mexico will face off again on Saturday at 1pm.
