The Lady Badgers began the SWAC (Scenic West Athletic Conference) tournament after closing out the regular season with a 20-8 overall record, and an 8-7 conference record.
Snow had two losses at home, one on Thursday, Feb. 19 to North Idaho College (NIC), and again on Saturday, Feb. 21 to the College of Southern Idaho (CSI).
Thursday night’s game against NIC was close to the end. Snow came back after trailing most of the game and the Lady Badgers took the lead with ten minutes to go. With just seconds left in the game and Snow up by two, NIC was able to get up one last three-point shot that just beat the buzzer as it dropped in, giving Snow a hard loss. The final score was 66-67.
“We are happy with the results we had on the road,” said Head Coach Natalie Visger. In the last few weeks of the regular season the Lady Badgers went 3-2 on the road.
Snow played in the conference tournament held in Price, Utah at USU-Eastern from Feb. 26-28. Coach Visger stated before the last two home games, “We would like to go into the tournament ranking second, so we get the bye in the first round.” With their last two losses, the Lady Badgers went in ranked third.
Snow won their first game 82-44 against Colorado Northwestern Community College, but lost in the second round 72-63 to CSI.
