The new season began with a win. Baton Rouge overcame turnovers and a scrappy LSU-Eunice squad to win their conference opener 78-71. BRCC is 7-13 on the season, but tonight's win gives them the start they needed in conference play.
The Lady Bears trailed the majority of the first half. Plaqued by turnovers and missed opportunities, BRCC had to battle from behind before taking a 41-38 lead into intermission.
Next up for the Lady Bears is a road game at Delgado Community College. Baton Rouge will be in New Orleans on Saturday, January 31st to face the Dolphins for a men's and women's doubleheader.
