BUFFALO — A poor second quarter was too much for Jamestown Community College to overcome in an 83-62 loss to nationally ranked Villa Maria College on Monday evening at the Villa Athletic Center.

The Vikings, ranked No. 2 in the United State Collegiate Athletic Association Division II Coaches Poll released Wednesday, outscored the Jayhawks, 29-14, in the second quarter, capped by a 3-pointer at the buzzer to take a 45-25 lead into halftime.

"In the second quarter, we panicked a little bit and started throwing the ball away," said Jamestown CC assistant coach Chris Dole, who was in charge of the Jayhawks last night due to head coach Travis Wells being ejected their last time out. "Our shots were rushed and it turned into a lot of fast-break points for them."

Genesee CC transfer Tekia Gary led Villa Maria with 19 points while former Jayhawk Bianca Brown and Tapestry graduate Shaquana Owens each had 13.

The Vikings held a 53-37 advantage in rebounding and had 18 steals off 22 Jamestown CC turnovers.

Taylor Phelps led the Jayhawks with 20 points while Olivia Lynn added 18.

"They pressured us in a 2-3 zone and Taylor got by the first layer before pulling up in the middle of the lane," Dole said. "She got some great looks and knocked them down."

Villa Maria was credited with 27 assists on 37 made field goals.

"They are ranked No. 2 for a good reason. They are good," Dole said. "That's the best Villa Maria (11-2) team I've seen in three years."
