YUMA — The Cochise College women’s basketball team defeated Arizona Western, 55-36, on Wednesday.
The Apaches held Western to a total of 14 points in the second half.
Awa Keita led all scorers with 21 points, and Kayla Harris added 12. The No. 24-ranked Apaches are now 7-2 on the season and 3-1 in conference play.
“It is always good to get a conference win on the road,” coach Laura Hughes said. “Western slowed the game down, and we responded well. Our defense kicked in, and we held them in the second half.”
