November 22nd, 2010 | By SMWC
On Friday, November 19, 2010 the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) basketball team traveled to Cincinnati, Ohio to play in the Mount St. Joseph (MSJ) tournament.
The SMWC Pomeroys faced the host school, Mount St. Joseph, in their first game. The Pomeroys found themselves down by 10 at halftime against a very aggressive MSJ Lions squad. Once again, the Pomeroys played a strong second half and were able to pull out a victory in the final 36 seconds, winning by 64-61.
On Saturday, November 20, 2010 the Pomeroys faced USCAA opponent Spalding University in the championship game. Once again, the Pomeroys fell to a halftime deficit, this time at 13 points. The deficit was too large for the Pomeroys as they were unable to bounce back losing 74-55.
Junior Chelsey Barron, and freshman Jordan Barton were both named to the All-Tournament team. The Pomeroys will host Earlham College, Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 7 p.m.
