The Columbia College women's basketball team has a knack for playing close games on the road. The challenge has been winning those games.
The Cougars suffered another heartbreaking road loss Monday. This one came to Benedictine College.
The Cougars had a 66-65 lead before Benedictine's Kelsey Wolfe grabbed an offensive rebound and scored with 40 seconds left in the game. The basket proved to be the game winner, as Benedictine held on to win 67-66. Wolfe led the Ravens with 12 points.
Columbia College (4-4) got 15 points from junior guard Kayla Rice and 15 more from senior guard Janita Session. Freshman forward Ashley Fisher added 9 points and 5 rebounds.
All of Columbia College's losses have come by six points or fewer. On the road, the Cougars have suffered a one-point loss at Lyon (Ark.) College and a two-point loss at Avila University.
The Cougars will play Peru State University at 2 p.m. Saturday in Peru, Neb. Columbia College lost 79-73 to Peru State earlier this season.
