[December 03, 2012]  GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The Lincoln Christian University women's basketball team traveled to Grand Rapids, Mich., on Friday to begin their first game of two for the Women's NCCAA II Mid-West Regional Tip-Off. They had a tough task on their hands in their first game back from Thanksgiving break as they took on the NCCAA II No. 1-ranked Maranatha Baptist Bible College Crusaders. LCU sophomore guard, Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham, Effingham High) put up 19 points, but it was not good enough as Maranatha (3-0) controlled the game from the start and won with a score of 78-39.

Without senior forward Krystine Schnautz (Clay City, Clay City High), LCU (2-3) struggled to have a low post presence and a third scoring option as Colclasure and junior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick (Mount Vernon, Mount Vernon Township High) scored 33 of LCU's 39 total points in the contest. Colclasure scored her 19 points off 8-of-24 shooting, while also grabbing eight rebounds. Kirkpatrick scored 14 points off 7-of-13 shooting from the field.

Maranatha had three players in double figures, while 10 out of the 11 who played in the game got into the scoring column. Freshman forward Stacy Reinke (Clintonville, Clintonville High) and freshman forward Stacy Ross (Wyoming, Mich., Freedom Christian) both led Maranatha in scoring with 20 points each. Reinke went 9 of 16 from the field, while grabbing nine rebounds. Ross went 10 of 20 from the field, while also grabbing nine rebounds.

LCU would try for their next win on Saturday morning, going up against Northland International University (3-3) in their second and final game of the Women's Mid-West Regional Tip-Off in Grand Rapids.
