The first half was close throughout, as the College of Pharmacy
(2-15) hung with LCU. Lincoln went into halftime with only a
five-point lead, at 32-27.
The second half was more of the same
for LCU as they pulled away a little bit at a time. LCU eventually
extended their lead and outscored St. Louis by seven points in the
second half, giving Lincoln the 12-point win on the night.
Surprisingly, the visitors outrebounded LCU 57-48 on the game.
LCU did, however, force the College of Pharmacy into committing 24
turnovers. LCU also held the visitors to 1-of-11 shooting from the
3-point arc. Another thing that was in LCU's favor was free-throw
shooting. LCU was able to get to the free-throw line 25 times for
the night, knocking down 14 of those chances, compared with St.
Louis going only 4 of 9 from the free-throw line.
Sophomore shooting guard Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham, Effingham
High) led LCU for the game as she had 20 points on 8-of-23 shooting
while having 10 steals and eight rebounds, two rebounds shy of a
triple-double. Junior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick (Mount Vernon, Mount
Vernon Township High) recorded 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting and
grabbed seven rebounds. Junior guard Brooklyn Cunningham (Owosso,
Mich., Owosso High) recorded nine points for the game while grabbing
