The ASU Belles basketball team took two consecutive losses on their home court Feb. 6 and Feb. 8 leaving the team with an overall record of 12-8 and 9-7 in conference.

The Belles first took on Eastern New Mexico University. The Greyhounds were quick to score and took an early lead. A 3-pointer from freshman Sawyer Lloyd gave the Belles their first lead of the game in the first quarter, but it was overthrown by ENMU for the rest of the game. The Greyhounds’ defensive skills kept the Belles from scoring, which led to their victory of 86-60.

“It was a bad loss,” senior Catara Samuel said. “We were missing one of our key players and I feel like we needed some height out there, but we’ll learn from it and move on. It’s all we can do. We’re going to bounce back and play as hard as we can.”

On Feb. 8, the Belles played against the West Texas A&M University Lady Buffs. The Belles took and held the lead in the first half of the game, but the Buffs entered the third quarter and took the lead from ASU. The Belles came within two points of reclaiming their lead, but once again, their opponent’s defense restricted the Belles, resulting in another loss of 56-49.

The Belles will return home to face Texas A&M University-Kingsville on Feb. 20 in the Stephens Arena.
