Nobody can fault strength of schedule for New Mexico Highlands women’s basketball team this season.
The Cowgirls knocked off one of the region’s more solid teams, Texas-Permian Basin, in a 70-63 triumph Tuesday night at the Wilson Complex, avenging an earlier season 76-55 loss in Odessa.
NMHU, now 1-3 under new head coach Brianna Finch, has also played then-No. 1 West Texas A&M, coming deliciously close to an upset before falling 84-73.
Anngelina Sanchez scored a game-high 19 points on 8-for-17 shooting to lead Highlands on Tuesday.
