Cowgirls top UC Irvine 51-42

Behind a career high 24 from Ashley Sickles, the Wyoming Cowgirl basketball team (4-7 overall) defeated the UC Irvine Anteaters, 51-42, on Wednesday night in Laramie. The Cowgirls earn their fourth victory of the season while the Anteaters are 4-8 overall.

“Two very different halves of basketball which I’ve become accustomed to,” said head coachJoe Legerski. “I thought Chaundra Sewell got us off to a great start with a double-double by halftime. She was very aggressive on the boards. Kaitlyn Mileto hit some three’s early and it made us more comfortable. In the second half, it was Ashley Sickles. She scored 16 of our 19 points. We knew that we could get her the ball along the baseline in their zone.
