KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The KCKCC women's basketball team had no trouble moving past Highland CC on Saturday afternoon inside the KCKCC Fieldhouse, as they defeated the Scotties 63-54 for their second straight win.
The Blue Devils improve to 14-9 overall and 6-4 in the KJCCC, moving into a three-way tie for third place in the conference standings.
A quick 12-5 run in the first quarter got the scoring started for the Blue Devils ignited by a 6-0 run. All 12 points in the quarter were scored by Faith Putz as she sank four three-point field goals. KCKCC would extend their lead to double-digits before Highland slowly started to trim it, but two free throws from De'Jaria Guillroy and a basket by Lacy Whitcomb helped the Blue Devils to a 12-point halftime lead at 35-23.
The Blue Devils never relinquised the lead in the second half and a big three-point basket from Guillroy with 5:24 remaining sank all but everything for the Scotties. The Blue Devils led 56-41 at that point. Highland's deficit would get cut to 10 points, but it was too late by then as the Blue Devils ran the clock out to the end.
Guillroy led the team with 17 points, while Putz and Whitcomb scored 12.
KCKCC returns to action on Monday when they play JCCC on the road at 5:30 p.m.
