SPARTANS WIN ROAD GAME AGAINST CARDINALS
Coeur d'Alene, IDAHO – The Trinity Western Spartans women's basketball team the North Idaho Cardinals 69-53 in preseason action Friday night at NIC in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
"This afternoon's game was a great opportunity for us to continue working through some of our areas of focus. We have been emphasizing shot selection and creating for each other and we definitely saw some great moments today," commented TWU head coach Cheryl Jean-Paul. "On defense there are still some weaknesses that we need to shore up before league starts and to play against tough, competitive teams in Idaho and Washington are perfect places for that to happen. Having to play 30 seconds of defense against teams that can take advantage of poor rotations or miscommunication is so valuable at this point in the season."
The Spartans will continue their road trip tomorrow evening in Bellingham, Wash. Where TWU will take on the NCAA Div. II Western Washington Vikings. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m.
