After a remarkable year for the Mercer Women’s Basketball Team, their season ended in Loudonville, NY against the Sienna Saints with a (65-54) loss.

The Bears ended the season with a 20-15 overall record and truly displayed their worth during their first year in the Southern Conference.

The Bears led the Saints by three points going into the second half, but they were unable to hold that lead for the rest of the game. Teanna Robinson, leading forward for the Bears, received her fourth foul only three minutes into the second half. She was forced to sit for a majority of the remaining time and the Bear’s defense suffered because of her loss.

Senior Precious Bridges once again led the Bears with 19 points and also added four assists in her efforts. Alicia Williams followed behind her with 15 points, while fellow senior Briana Williams also contributed nine points.

Although Robinson was benched for a majority of the second half, she still tallied a game-high of nine rebounds and added four points in her last game as a Bear.

The Bear’s Southern Conference debut was something to remember and the 2014-2015 team should hold their heads high for a remarkable season.

The four fearless seniors will be greatly missed, but the future looks bright for Mercer Women’s Basketball.
