BLUEFIELD, Va. The Southern Virginia Women's Basketball team could not over come a strong Bluefield performance despite Kezia Ford's 19 points, and eventually fell 71-49. Ford was tied with Bluefield guard Heather Ferrell in points and Holly Hudson of the Rams in rebounds with 8.
"She had a strong performance for us," said Head Coach Mike Harmon. "We need to get her help so that a performance like this isn't given in a losing effort. They (Bluefield) were a little bit smaller than us, but they were quicker, and I think they outworked us, which needs to get fixed soon."
The Knights were unable to respond to an overwhelming first half, and the Rams went into the break leading 40-23. SVU shot 41% from the field and was 10 for 18 from the free throw line. SVU falls to 3-3 on the season. The Knights return to action Dec. 2 when they travel to ply Mary Baldwin. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00pm.
