The Columbia College women’s basketball team’s unbeaten streak in the American Midwest Conference came to an end Tuesday evening with a 73-72 loss to McKendree College. Before tonight’s loss, the Cougars had won 30 straight games in AMC play, a streak that dated back to the 2002-2003 season.

Columbia College (8-10, 2-1 AMC) was up by as many as 12 points at one point during the contest, but the Bearcats led 31-30 at the half. According to Cougars coach Mike Davis, this was primarily because of Columbia’s shooting a “poor” 37% from the floor.

With 32 seconds left, Rachel Davis drained a 3-pointer to tie the game at 72. However, McKendree was able to draw a foul with four seconds on the clock. Bearcat guard Katie Hasheider missed the first free throw but made the second to win the game.

Jessica Wilkerson again led Columbia in scoring with 15. Davis and Valerie Suarez added 12 points apiece.
