The Pratt Community College women's basketball team opened up Jayhawk Conference play with a road matchup against Allen County Community College. The Beavers tackled the Red Devils to improve to 7-1. After downing Allen County 71-52, Pratt is now undefeated in home and away contests.
The Beavers' victory was achieved due to success on both ends of the floor. Four Lady Beavers tallied points in double-digits. In just 20 minutes of on court action, forward Courtney Cleveland (14 points) was the team's highest-scoring player. Fellow forward Tytianna Haamid achieved similar marks offensively with 13 points in 20 minutes while coming off the bench.
On the defensive end PCC held the Red Devils to less than a 32 percent field goal percentage and did so while only sending opposing players to the charity stripe for a total of eight shots. Thus far in the 2018-19 season, Pratt has held their opponents to a field goal percentage of 29 percent.
The blue and white controlled the offensive glass as well with a noticeable 49-33 rebound advantage. Cleveland set the standard for her team when crashing the boards. She came away with 10 total rebounds to earn her first double-double as a Beaver.
Conference play will continue for PCC women's basketball when they return to the Lesh Sports Arena on Dec. 5 against Cowley College. The contest is scheduled to tipoff at 6 p.m.
