Leading a parade of 11 point getters, Albion High graduate Tanisha Moyer helped spark Niagara County Community College to a 78-38 romp over visiting Finger Lakes Community College this evening in the Thunderwolves home opener.
Moyer scored 14 points and also grabbed off 3 rebounds for NCCC which improves to 6-0. A sophomore, Moyer came into the game averaging 15.8 points and 8 rebounds.
Roy-Hart High grad Jesse DeWaters led NCCC in assists with 7 and also grabbed off 5 rebounds. Also a sophomore, she came into the game averaging 9.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 7.8 assists.
“Tanisha has really improved a lot. She was our hardest worker in the off season,” said NCCC Coach Nate Beutel. “And Jesse has always been awesome.”
Two baskets by Moyer capped off a 9-2 run at the outset which put NCCC on top to stay. She had a total of 8 in the half which saw the Thunderwolves open up a commanding 33 point, 47-14 advantage.
Moyer then erupted for three quick baskets in the first 3:30 of the second half to help boost the NCCC advantage to 43 at 57-14 as the reserves came in to play the final 16 minutes.
The NCCC attack also included three other double figure scores as Jaclyn Welch had 14, 10 of which came in the first half, Maria Faso 12 and Caneia Titua 11, 8 of which came in the first half. Merrick Rowland also hit three three’s in the opening half.
