Flowers leads Raiders past Cougars

JOHNSTOWN — Kassandra Flowers knocked down 10 3-pointers on her way to a 32-point night as Fulton-Montgomery Community College beat Clinton Community College 76-54 in women’s college basketball Thursday.

“That was the game. It was not them, it was Flowers,” Clinton coach Donna Dixon said. “She had 10 of them. We switched up defenders. We did everything we could to stop her, and she would take two steps backward and drain a three. The kid was on fire.”

The Cougars got off to a rough start and trailed 41-23 by halftime. They couldn’t get closer than 15 points in the second half.

“We played well enough in the second half,” Dixon said. “The first half did us in. We were flat. We weren’t making shots. It just wasn’t our night.”

Kendra Jordan was the only other Fulton-Montgomery player in double digits with 11.

Emily Decker led Clinton with 19 points, and Katrina Garrand had 17 points, six assists and four steals. Ruth Paul pulled down 17 rebounds.
