GCC Women's Basketball Team on bench watching game

The Genesee Community College women's basketball team trailed host Villa Maria by just a couple scores at the half, but the Vikings out-scored the Cougars by eight in the second half to take the contest 76-62 Dec. 2.

The Cougars continue to run into hot teams after losing their last start to Monroe, who left Batavia with an eight-game winning streak. The Vikings had won four of its last five before hosting Genesee.

The game started well for Genesee as the Cougars built a seven-point lead and had the edge for most of the first quarter. The Vikings responded and took a six-point lead into the break. The game's shooting percentages were similar except at the charity strip where the Cougars missed out on a dozen points.

TaLia Burgess led the team in scoring with 15, but Jasmine Holmes had the double-double with 10 points and 11 boards. Titilopemi Olusola was the third Cougar to reach double-digit points with 12.

Estella Anderson was solid under the boards with a team-high 14 rebounds, while Burgess added eight and Olusola five. Burgess also had a pair of blocks and Rosalyn Sealey recorded a team-high four assists.

Genesee continues on the road with a contest against Jamestown Community College Dec. 6 at 5:30 p.m.
