The Rams women’s basketball team were unable to hold off a physical Reedley Tigers team despite a hot start on Wednesday night, falling 76-73 in their final regular season home game of the season.

Fresno City College came into the game with a record of 18-9 coming off a three game win streak, and looked to stay hot for sophomore night at FCC.

The Rams came out with a passion, despite sophomore guard Jerrene Richardson starting the night on the bench. Once entering the game however, Richardson almost immediately got into foul trouble, ending the first half of the game with four total fouls.

The Rams endured a physical game that saw numerous scuffles on the floor before whistles blew the plays dead.

“They played really hard,” head coach Alex Fletcher said of the team following the disappointing loss, which saw the Rams lead 34-30 heading into halftime, before falling victim to a relentless second half comeback from Reedley.

A bright spot the Rams can definitely take moving forward was the performance of freshman guard Jordyn Brown. Brown posted 12 points in the contest, including going two of five from three-point range, and six of eight from the free throw line – all of which vast improvements over her season averages.

“I thought Jordyn played great,” Fletcher said of Brown’s performance. “She really battled. When they’re playing one-on-one like that you just gotta go in and draw contact.”

The loss dropped the Rams to 18-10, 6-5 in conference play, and brought Reedley to a third place tie with FCC in the Central Valley Conference standings.

The Rams wrap up the regular season with a road game against Merced College on Saturday, Feb. 23.
