The Eastern Wyoming College women's basketball team lost in the second round of the Region IX Tournament Thursday in Casper.
The Lancers, seeded third in the North, lost 84-75 to Otero Junior College, the second-seeded South team.
Freshman forward Montse Gutierrez Ibanez and freshman guard Ane Esnal Aguirre led the Lancers with 18 points each. Ibanez added a team-best eight rebounds while Aguirre tallied a game-high seven steals while finishing second on the team with five rebounds.
Ibanez was 4-for-7 on 3-pointers, accounting for all but two of Eastern's made threes. The Lancers were just 6-of-24 (25%) from deep and 30-of-70 (42.9%) overall from the field.
EWC finished 17-14 overall and look poised to build around a strong freshmen core for the 2020-21 season.
