Basketball: USA succes for Capital coach Finnie

The St Augustine’s High FP, in her second year as head coach to Houston Baptist University women’s team, steered her side to the Finals and yesterday, in their first game as eighth seeds, the Texas team defeated fifth seeds McNeese State University 70-68 with Scot Erin McGarrachan scoring 12.

HBU clinched their Finals place with a stirring 81-71 victory over Incarnate Word College in San Antonio, Texas, in which Cumbernauld’s McGarrachan was the star with a career-high best of 27 points.
