WBB Falls to San Jac in Scrimmage

“It was nice to finally play against someone other than ourselves,” said Head Coach Mike Ricks. “Any time you miss 48 shots, you probably aren’t going to win, and we were still right there against a good San Jac team. Obviously we aren’t happy about the loss but we are pleased with the effort. We also have a pretty good idea of what we need to work on before our season opener next week.”

Amber Arceneaux-Francis led the way for the Celts finishing with 20 points and 11 rebounds.

Next week, Nov. 2-3, the Celts travel to Espanola, N.M., where they will play games against Arizona Christian University and Northern New Mexico College in the Santa Claran Classic.

“We are looking forward to the trip,” Ricks said. “Tomorrow we will get to work fixing the things we need to fix so we can have a different result in New Mexico.”

The Celts home opener is set for 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 6 in Jerabeck Gym against Dallas Christian College. The game is free for UST students, faculty and staff and $3 admission for all others. The game will also be broadcast live at Download the schedule here.
