Willamette 66, Schreiner 50
Gabby Ivarra scored 15 points and had six rebounds, but Schreiner University's women's basketball team couldn't recover from a poor-shooting second quarter in a 66-50 loss against Willamette in Salem, Ore. on Friday.
The Mountaineers were outscored 39-17 in the second and third quarters, including 16-7 in the second. Schreiner missed 13 shots in the second quarter, including five 3-pointers.
It was the first game for Willamette in 18 months. The Oregon-based university did not compete in the 2020-2021 season. However, Willamette was raring to go and shot a torrid 54% from the field. Carolyn Ho scored a game-high 18 points.
Schreiner, now 1-2 on the season, will face Lewis and Clark today.
