[February 05, 2013]  The Lincoln Christian University women's basketball team returned to their home court after a week off, as they hosted the Kuyper College (KC) Cougars. When the two teams played each other earlier this season, LCU (7-8) handled Kuyper (3-14) with a 65-40 victory, and Saturday afternoon was no different as LCU took care of business from the beginning, winning 79-49.

The LCU women dominated KC early and often. LCU ran out and grabbed a 38-19 lead in the first half. The second half was much of the same, as LCU outscored KC 41-30. The game stats, however, were even more impressive than the final score. LCU shot 50 percent from the floor on Saturday, while also shooting 36 percent from behind the 3-point arc. KC shot only 29 percent from the floor. LCU also outrebounded KC 41-20. LCU forced KC into making 30 turnovers during the game, while also grabbing 19 steals.

LCU was led in scoring by sophomore guard Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham, Effingham High) as she put up 33 points on 13-of-23 shooting, including 4 of 10 from behind the arc. She also had six rebounds, six assists and five steals. Junior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick (Mount Vernon, Mount Vernon Township High) had the game's only double-double as she had 23 points on 11-of-17 shooting, while also grabbing 13 rebounds.

For Kuyper, sophomore forward Kaitlynn Rosier (Grand Rapids, Mich.) led the way with 21 points on 5-of-14 shooting, including 8 of 9 from the free-throw line. Senior guard Latoria Pope (Detroit, Mich.) chipped in with 11 points and four steals.
