The regular season for women's basketball concluded, on the road, at Dixie State. A 63-60 loss to the Trailblazers sees the Griffins finish second in the standings with a 17-5 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) record and a 19-7 overall record.
The two teams were pretty much even through three quarters of play. The home team ended the first quarter with a 1-point lead and held on to the lead through the second quarter. The Griffins scored 18 points for a 2-point lead going into the final quarter.
The Griffins increased their lead to 6 in the first couple of minutes of the fourth quarter. Dixie State hit a three for the lead with 6:07 remaining. Westminster couldn't get the ball to drop through the hoop and finished with only 3 points over the final six minutes of the game. Senior Sicilee William's shot from near mid-court looked like it might go in but it bounced off the iron for the Dixie State win.1 comment on this story
