Vs. Nezperce
Tuesday, Jan. 8 the Lady Pirates hosted Nezperce and had a much easier time of it than in their season opener as they jumped out to a 13-4 lead after one quarter and rolled to a 49-22 win.Tanna Schlader appears to be getting fouled on this shot attempt against Nezperce as Brooke Schumacher looks on.
Much of the difference was the absence of Nezperceís Aleesha Arnzen to injury as her hot shooting in the first game helped Nezperce take a halftime lead.
