The Pima Community College women’s basketball team (12-3) closed out play in the 10th annual Bruce Fleck Classic on Saturday.

Freshmen Jaslyn Booker (Buena HS) and Chavez came down with crucial defensive rebounds down the stretch.

The Aztecs smothered the Badgers in the second quarter giving up just six points on 1 for 11 shooting. The Aztecs led 30-15 at halftime.

Sophomore Melissa Simmons finished with a game-high 14 points (all scored in the first half). She went 5 for 8 from the field and 4 for 6 from three-point range.
