SFU Women's Basketball lose close game to Eastern Washington


The SFU women’s basketball team began their new season with an exhibition game against Eastern Washington, a fellow NCAA team but one that plays in Division I. SFU lost 72-66, but a six point loss to a Division I school is nothing to be upset about.


“It is early and combined with our youth we are working on many strategies to see which will stick” said SFU head coach Bruce Langford talking to BC Sports Hub. “We are good first half limiting them to 13 points each quarter. Second half we turned the ball over for easy layups and it gave them life. We shot the ball well in the first half and poorly in the second. That made all the difference.”
