Mesa puts all on the table

On this night, the No. 1 Mavericks just too good on both O and D
Kelsey Sigl saved the ball from going out of bounds, and she saved the Mavericks’ season with 18 points on Kaile Magazzeni and Fort Lewis College in the single-elimination NCAA Tournament. Colorado Mesa, the No. 1 seed in the South Central Regional, defeated No. 8 FLC 74-48 on Friday night in Grand Junction.
Bruna Deichmann and Colorado Mesa knocked down and knocked out Erika Richards and Fort Lewis College from the NCAA Tournament on Friday night in Grand Junction. Deichmann scored 12 points off the bench to help Colorado Mesa to a 74-48 victory.
“They got up (tight on defense) on us and double-teamed immediately, and our girls were able to knock shots down,” Colorado Mesa shooter Kelsey Sigl said. “When that happens, it’s kind of pick your poison type of deal.”

“It’s bittersweet. You never want the journey to end but tip our caps to Mesa, they played a great game, and we didn’t, and obviously we have a little frustration with that. They’re a great team and deserving to go on and represent this conference. We wanted to beat them, but we’re gonna root for them going forward.”

“We were just stuck a little bit. We didn’t move the ball as well as we should have and then attack off that, which is where we have success. They played a great defensive game, and we got bogged down. It’s frustrating, but it is what it is now.”

“They were really good on both ends. They have that capability. They’re not where they’re at right now without being able to do that. I can’t say anything other than I wish we would have played better just to see, but again, credit to them.”

“What coming home meant is something short of a miracle. I love home. It was hard for me to not come back home so when I left I missed it immediately, and when things didn’t work out, I didn’t expect to go anywhere else but home. I came home, and I was broken. I had been broken, and this team, these girls, they put my heart back together. I couldn’t have asked for better people, this town, even the town of Junction. Everybody here knows me. It’s fun. It’s fun to play in front of people who have known me my entire life.”

“Yeah, there’s expectations, and I didn’t fill them, but I’m finishing strong. When people talk to me, I feel like I was appreciated. Coming home was the best decision I made. Going away was good for me because now I appreciate everything I have more than what I ever would have, and this last group of girls I’ve gotten to play with, they’ll be family the rest of my life. I love them.”
