Michelle Bell - Fear, Stage Comeback By EBEN PUNDERSON Sentinel...
Fear, Stage Comeback By EBEN PUNDERSON Sentinel Staff Writer The Sheldon Jackson College Lady Seals bounced back from an eight- point loss on Friday to defeat Central Washington University by 19 points Saturday in a two-game series here this weekend. Coach Steve Eberly was elated after Saturday's 71-52 win. "We played extemely well," he said. "It was the best game I've coached since I've been (at SJ)." He attributed the Seals' turnaround in the second game to a change in their perception of the opposing team. Eberly said his team was "in awe" of Central Washington the first night, and it took them a while to realize that the teams were at least equal. He said that after the first game they talked about it, and realized they were capable of winning. "The coach told us we could beat them by putting our minds to it," said Vera Aniskette, who scored 20 points on Saturday. Which is exactly what they did. Eberly said everyone played well on Saturday, especially Michelle Bell who "finally unleashed a good game! She had some electric moves," said her coach. Bell ended up Saturday with 27 points. Strong defense held the visitors to six. out of 27 field goal attempts in the first half of Satuday's game, compared compared with 15 out of 26 for the Seals. Vera Aniskette hit four of seven three-pointers, ending a shooting slump which has plagued her in recent games. On Saturday the Seals held onto a solid lead for most of the game. With four minutes left in the first half the score stood at 34-19, but the Warriors narrowed that gap to just seven points in the following three minutes. In an attempt to hold back a series of strong offensive plays by CWU, the Seals drew several fouls, but in the final minute the home team regained control of the game. Two free throws and a long jumper put the Seals up by 11, and just before the buzzer, Michelle Bell made off :with a fast break and closed the first half with a graceful layup to make the jscore 43-31. Thirty seconds into the second half Aniskette followed Bell's example and dropped in her own layup after a fast break. With five minutes gone, Aniskette sank a long three-pointer to make the score 50-33. A raucous crowd and the sound of ^-booming drums propelled the Seals vonward to take a decisive lead mid- way through the second half. At Michelle Bell reached up and around from the baseline to score another points and make the tally 53-39. Thirty seconds later Cheri Pearsall arched in a long jumpshot for another two points. The Seals kept up the momentum and rolled on to a 71-52 win. The Seals didn't fare as well the night before. They made just seven 20 free throws, and Eberly said they didn't pick up on a defensive change by the Warriors late in the game. Half-time score stood at 35-34, with SJ up by one.
