Bluefield, VA-- Pink may not be the traditional colors of the BC Lady Rams but they are changing that with "Shoot for a Cure."
Takieya Rouse led the team in scoring against Milligan College on Wednesday.
When the Lady Rams take to the court on Wednesday evening they want to look up and see their fans not in the traditional red/blue colors but a sea of pink. The Lady Rams with only three games left in the season following Wednesday's match-up against Tennessee Wesleyan decided to participate in a cause close to their hearts.
After winning 83-72 against Appalachian Athletic Conference Rival (AAC) Milligan College, that showed the Lady Rams winning at half- time came out and did not let Milligan beat them a second time this season. Leading the Rams in scoring was Takieya Rouse who scored an outstanding 22 points in the win. Another Lady Ram that had a standout game was Kia Gilliard who netted 17 points in the win.
The Lady Rams(8-15) find themselves near the bottom of the pack in the AAC rankings, ahead of Bryan College, but intend to finish the season on a high after the Milligan win. They will travel to Union College on Saturday and follow it up with the Shoot for a Cure event against Tennessee Wesleyan (21-3) on Wednesday.
Tennessee Wesleyan find themselves at the top of the AAC polls and a perfect 9-0 thus far in conference play. They will end the season with two conference games on the road against Virginia Intermont and Bryan College, and finish with the last home game of the season against Montreat College.
The game against Montreat College (February 19) will also hold a special meaning for the group, not only will it be the last home game it will be senior night. The Lady Rams will honor Kiara Williams, Kiara Honore', and Katrina Morris for their outstanding plays during their time at BC.
This season has definately marked a memorable season for the Lady Rams that saw former head coach Steve Hardin leave for another coaching opportunity. Current head coach Jessica Brokaw went from student to teacher literally overnight .
The Lady Rams will tip-off against Tennessee Wesleyan at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, February 9 followed by the Rams game at 7:30 pm. Come out and wear pink for a great cause and catch the second to last home game in the Dome.
