Battle at the Carolina's Challenge Comes Up Short

Battle at the Carolina's Challenge Comes Up Short

SMC Women's Basketball played in the prestigious Christmas tournament in Myrtle Beach, SC over the Christmas holiday. 


In front of a huge crowd, the Pioneers fell late to USC Salkehatchie, 65-61. 


Jayla Hopkins and Ta'Keria Legette lead the scoring efforts with 17 & 15 respectively. 


Even after forcing 31 turnovers and taking 13 more field goal attempts, the cold-shooting could not be overcome down the stretch. 


Next up for the Pioneers is a local home game vs Converse on Thursday, January 9 at noon. Pack your lunch and sneak over to Bridges Arena to watch a quality hoops match up in 2020. 




(These ladies had the honor of meeting Sylvia Hatchell, former UNC-Chapel Hill Women's Basketball Coach. They were able to talk with her for a little while and get a picture with her.)
