It was a long night in Colorado Springs for Schreiner University’s men’s and women’s basketball teams as Colorado College swept past the visiting Mountaineers.
In the women’s game, Colorado College held Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference-leading scorer Demauria Miles to seven points, forcing the Schreiner Mountaineers into 26 turnovers in a 70-49 victory. It was Colorado College’s seventh straight victory, keeping the Tigers one game back in the SCAC standings behind unbeaten Trinity University.
It was the second consecutive loss for Schreiner, keeping the Mountaineers locked in third place at 8-4. Elisa Peralta led Schreiner with 14 points.
The Mountaineers kept things close through the first half but suffered long scoring droughts in the third quarter. The Mountaineers were miserable from 3-point range — finishing 3-of-13 on the night. The Tigers proved deadly from beyond the arc by knocking down 11 3-pointers.
The victory marked the first season sweep of the Mountaineers by Colorado College since the series began in 2014.
In the men’s game, the Mountaineers fell behind early and suffered a woeful 24% shooting performance. It was Schreiner’s second-worst shooting performance of the season, and the loss drops the Mountaineers to 4-8 in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
Darian Gibson led the Mountaineers with 11 points, and Bronson Evans came off the bench for 10 points.
