Ma’ata Epenisa was big down the stretch for the Colorado Mesa women’s basketball team, twice scoring the go-ahead basket in the final 3 minutes of the Mavericks’ 58-54 victory over Fort Lewis at Brownson Arena.

Small-ball success

Small contributes in various ways in Mavs’ win

Sydney Small said before the season began that if her shot wasn’t falling, she’d find a way to contribute for the Colorado Mesa women’s basketball team.
The senior guard was true to her word Friday night in the Mavericks’ thrilling 58-54 RMAC victory over rival Fort Lewis at Brownson Arena.
She hit Ma’ata Epenisa with a crisp pass from the baseline to give the Mavericks a 56-54 lead with 21 seconds to play, then was in on two plays that were reviewed multiple times by the officiating crew in the final 10 seconds.
