Simon Fraser University women split their matches in Great Northwest conference basketball this weekend.
The Clan made a late run to eke out a 67-64 win over last-place Central Washington on Saturday after dropping a 76-72 decision to Northwest Nazarene on Thursday night.
Second-chance points cost SFU the weekday game in Nampa, Idaho.
"We gave up too many offensive boards that led them taking 17 more shots than us," said Clan head coach Bruce Langford in a Clan press release.
Kristina Collins, last week's conference player of the week, led the Clan with 22 points.
Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe contributed a double-double, including 18 points and 10 rebounds.
Against Central Washington, Raincock-Ekunwe led all players with a game-high 23 points and 16 boards. Collins chipped in with 13 points, while Chelsea Reist had 10.
Central Washington held a nine-point lead late in the game, but SFU responded with an 18-6 run to close the show.
Erin Chambers put the Clan ahead with a layup and a successful free throw with 27 seconds left.
Marie-Line Petit then secured the victory, finishing a layup with just six ticks left on the clock.
The win improved SFU's NCAA Division II conference record to 6-3.
The Clan will host thirdplace Western Washington at home on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m.
Simon Fraser University men's basketball team remained mired at the bottom of the Great Northwest conference basement.
With injuries depleting an already short lineup, SFU went into the weekend with just seven healthy players.
The Clan men dropped a pair of NCAA Division II matchups at home, falling 88-81 to Northwest Nazarene on Thursday before dropping a 10183 decision to Central Washington last Saturday.
"Defence and rebounding were our biggest weaknesses," said Clan guard Jordan Sergent in a SFU press release. "We're a lot smaller now with the injuries and missing players, and it's causing us to get outrebounded."
Sergent registered his second straight double-double, scoring 26 points and posting 10 rebounds on Saturday. In the earlier game, Sergent had 20 points and 10 boards.
Against Central Washington, the Clan were outclassed 42-28 off the glass.
Justin Brown also put up some big numbers for SFU in the back-to-back losses.
Brown led the Clan with 23 points, including 15 of 17 from the free-throw line against Nazarene. He also had 21 against Central Washington.
The Clan is now 6-11 overall this season with a 18 mark in conference play. SFU travels to Western Washington this weekend.
