GALESBURG—Sauk Valley used a pair of first-half runs to hand the Carl Sandburg College women’s basketball team a 64-44 Arrowhead Conference loss on Thursday night at John M. Lewis Gymnasium.
Back-to-back 3-pointers by Chargers sophomore forward Marysa Remick (Victoria, Ill./ROWVA) and sophomore guard Kaylee Moseley (Taylor Ridge, Ill./Rockridge) tied the game at 6 with 13 minutes, 50 seconds left in the first half, but the Skyhawks (15-3, 4-1) responded with a 15-0 run over the next 3:06. Sauk Valley padded its lead by scoring 14 of the last 16 in the half for a 42-16 advantage at the break.
“We didn’t come out with much intensity and they took it to us,” Sandburg coach Mike Bailey said. “I liked our effort in the second half a little more, but we need to put together a complete game soon if we want to turn things around.”
Sandburg (8-10, 1-4) dropped its fifth in a row overall and fourth straight conference contest. Remick scored 11 of her team-leading 14 points in the second half for the Chargers.
Jordan Giddings paced Sauk Valley with a game-high 16 points. Morgan Dean and Aleena Hammelman each added 14 points for the Skyhawks.
The teams will play the back end of their home-and-home set when the Chargers travel to Sauk Valley at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
