[Women’s Basketball] Golden Bears upend Rio women

Rio Grande Sports Information
    BECKLEY, W.Va. – The University of Rio Grande had an opportunity to forge a tie with West Virginia University-Tech for the best record in the River States Conference East Division, as well as the best record in the league overall.
    Unfortunately, though, some serious offensive damage over the middle two quarters allowed the Golden Bears to grab a stranglehold on the inside track toward a division title and conference regular season championship, while also buckling themselves into the driver's seat in regard to both.
    Rio Grande sliced a 21-point third quarter deficit down to just six twice in the final three minutes, but Tech weathered the RedStorm comeback bid en route to an eventual 102-89 win, Thursday night, at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.
    WVU-Tech improved to 14-6 overall and 7-0 in conference play with the win – its eight consecutive victory and third straight triumph over Rio in the all-time series between the two schools.
    The RedStorm, who lost for the second time in three outings on the heels of a six-game winning streak, slipped to 12-8 overall and 5-2 in the RSC – two full games behind the Golden Bears for the RSC East lead and the league's top record.

Rio Grande Sports Information
    NEW ALBANY, Ind. – University of Rio Grande men's basketball coach Ken French watched his short-handed RedStorm give maximum effort in a win at Brescia University on Thursday night.
    French's squad came up with the same kind of showing against a much better foe on Saturday afternoon, but the inability to hang on to the basketball prevented his club from recording a monumental upset.
