SEATTLE — Simon Fraser women’s basketball coach Bruce Langford called it a “monster game.”
Tayler Drynan, a Spokane, Washington, native with deep roots in the Mining City, sank seven 3-pointers and scored 21 to lead the way as Simon Fraser went on the road to beat Seattle Pacific 69-60 Saturday in a Great North Northwest Athletic Conference game at Brougham Pavillian. (Stats)
Drynan’s effort led the Clan to a season-high 15 made 3-pointers. She shot 7 for 15 from behind the 3-point line.
“This was the first game of the year where I felt like every player contributed in some positive way,” Langford said. “Tayler Drynan had a monster game as well and we were very good on the glass all afternoon.”
The win lifted the Clan to 9-6 on the season and 5-3 in GNAC play.
Drynan, who entered the game averaging 9.5 points per game, also dished out four assists and grabbed four rebounds for Simon Fraser, which is back in action Thursday at home against Central Washington.
Drynan is the granddaughter of Jim and Sheila Drynan of Butte. Her father, Tom, is a 1986 graduate of Butte Central. He played quarterback for the Maroons.
A junior at Simon Fraser, Drynan had a stellar high school career at Gonzaga Prep in Spokane. Her team won 50 consecutive games and won back-to-back Washington State 4A titles.
Simon Fraser is an NCAA Division II school located in Burnaby, British Columbia.
