Stifling Defense Leads FCC to Victory

COLUMBIA, Md. – The defense showed up for the FCC women's basketball team on Friday night in Columbia, Maryland. The Cougars held Howard Community College to 9.2% shooting from the field on their way to a 63-22 victory over the Dragons. FCC also forced Howard CC into committing 16 miscues in the contest.

The fabulous five from FCC deliver again for Coach Henry as the Cougars improve to 12-4 on the year, including a perfect 5-0 in conference play. Nia Powell continues to have herself quite a sophomore season. She finished the game with 22 points (11-of-16 FGs) and 31 rebounds in 40 minutes of action. That is getting it done. Teammates Amiah Banks and Makaala Ambush filled up the stat sheet, each recording a double-double. Banks went for 19 points and hauled down 10 boards. Ambush chipped in with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Ariana Moye had a stellar game in the paint as she recorded eight swats on the day. She has 15 blocks in the last two games. Makenzie Crigger rounded out the stats with 7 points and 3 assists. 

FCC turned up the heat on defense against the Dragons. Howard CC shot just 7-of-76 from the field. After one quarter of play, the Dragons were just 1-of-17. The Cougars would take a 23-11 advantage after 20 minutes of play and never looked back.
