Saints End Season on High Note with 78-62 Win Over Hillsborough

February 21, 2015

Gainesville, FL – Litiha Speights ended her Santa Fe career with a bang scoring 12 points to go with a career high 18 rebounds to lead the Saints to a 78-62 win over Hillsborough Community College. Freshman Brianca Roberts showed that the future is bright for the women's team, scoring 17 points, including five three pointers, to lead SF scorers.

Santa Fe started off slow on the offensive end and trailed 12-8 to the Hawks with 14 minutes to go in the first half.  From there, they closed the half on a 30-5 run and led at the break 38-17.

The second half was all Saints until a small rally by the Hawks cut the final margin to 16 at 78-62.

Joining Speights and Roberts in double figures was Khadijah Howell with 10 points.  Ashley Perry and Deja McPhee had nine each, and Tatiana Manuel had seven.

Santa Fe ends their 2015 season with a 12-15 overall record and a 3-9 mark in the Mid-Florida Conference, with all three wins coming against Hillsborough.
