Lackawanna lose to Owls

Despite a 20 point effort by Alexandra Jackson, the Lackawanna College women's basketball team fell to Union County College 78-69. With the loss, the Falcons' chance for the top seed in the upcoming Region XIX Division II Women's Basketball Tournament came to an end.

In addition to Jackson, two other Lady Falcons scored in double figures. Both Paris Thompson and Lindsey Dippre contributed 10 points each to the Falcons' efforts. Leading rebounder for Lackawanna was Laquana Nagbe with 9, while Dippre led the team in assists with 8.

Lackawanna finishes their regular season on Saturday when they host Raritan Valley Community College on Saturday at the Student Union. A win on Saturday will most likely leave them in a second place tie with Harcum College. Applying the existing Region tie breaking rules that tie will be broken a decision of the seeding committee.
