Cascades fall to Carleton in exhibition action

A cold shooting performance sent the University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team to a 61-43 defeat at the hands of the Carleton Ravens on Friday at the Cougar Classic preseason tournament hosted by the University of Regina.

The Cascades held their Ottawa-based opponents to 34.5 per cent shooting from the field, but were only able to convert 25.8 per cent of their own shots, including an 0-for-18 performance from beyond the three-point arc.

“We didn’t shoot the ball very well,” Cascades head coach Al Tuchscherer acknowledged. “We’re just not finding good shots within our offence yet, and I need to get them a bit better prepared for that. I’m really excited to get back in the gym with the team and work on that.”

Taylor Claggett of the Cascades had eight points and 12 boards against the Carleton Ravens on Friday.

Shayna Litman, coming off a 16-point outing against the Alberta Pandas on Thursday, led the Cascades in scoring for the second straight night, racking up 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the field. Taylor Claggett notched eight points and a game-high 12 rebounds, while last season’s Canada West scoring leader Kayli Sartori was limited to six points on 1-of-14 shooting from the field.

Carleton’s Stephanie Carr counted five three-pointers among her game-high 22 points, and Nicole Gilmore snared 11 rebounds.

“I thought both Shayna and Taylor Claggett both battled hard – they had their hands full tonight,” Tuchscherer said. “Carleton has a lot of size, but they held their own.”

The Cascades wrap up their run at the Cougar Classic on Saturday vs. the Ryerson Rams (11 a.m. local time).
