Wise scores 29 as Laker women win 20th game

GC warms up for WPCC title game by routing Westmoreland

Garrett College finished a 4-games-in-4-days women’s basketball marathon Tuesday by rolling past host Westmoreland County Community College, 81-32.

Jersey Wise scored a game-high 29 points as the Lakers (20-4) improved to 15-2 over their last 17 games. Wise, Josias Mickens (12 points) and Josie Canales (14 points) each hit 3-pointers as Garrett College raced to a 15-5 lead in the game’s first 4:53 and never looked back.

"We ran the floor well today and shot a high percentage from the 3-point line," said GC head coach JT Lewis. "Jersey had a good day shooting and Josias applied a lot of ball pressure that led to fast-break points."

Aliyah Tucker added 17 points and helped set up the outside shooting game for the Lakers, who held the Wolfpack to 7 second-quarter points while stretching their lead to 45-18 at the half.

"Aliyah did a good job of posting up and kicking the ball out," observed Lewis.

Shay Barlow added 5 points and Harmoni Swain tallied 4 points to round out GC’s scorers.

Chloe Willochell led Westmoreland with 10 points.

Top-seeded Garrett College will next host Saturday’s 5 p.m. Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference (WPCC) Division II championship game against either second-seeded Potomac State College of West Virginia University or third-seeded Beaver County Community College.

The Lakers are 6-0 versus WPCC competition (both Division I and Division II) this season. Their closest WPCC game was a 61-57 thriller at Potomac State (15-7). GC hung an 87-42 loss on Beaver County (3-18) and downed WPCC Division I champion Butler County Community College by 23 points.
