[February 13, 2013]  MOBERLY, Mo. -- The Lincoln Christian University women's basketball team traveled to Moberly, Mo., on Monday night to take on the Central Christian College of the Bible Saints. When CCCB (16-9) and LCU (8-11) faced off last month, CCCB won 66-41. Monday night was no different, as CCCB ran away with the game from the start, winning 92-46.

Playing their fifth game in 10 days, LCU knew they were in for a fight, and CCCB put up a bigger fight than the visitors were able to handle. CCCB wasted no time in the first half, running the score up to 53-20 at the end of the half.

The pounding continued in the second half as CCCB outscored LCU 39-26. LCU was never able to find an answer to CCCB's fast-break points, which were the majority of points they scored.

CCCB dominated LCU in the statistical categories, including a 39-26 difference in the rebounding battle. CCCB also forced LCU into making 23 turnovers, compared with 12 that CCCB committed. CCCB was also able to get to the free-throw line 22 times, compared with LCU's 10 free-throw attempts.

Sophomore forward Alicia Carson (Gobles, Mich., Bloomingdale High) led LCU with 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting, and she grabbed nine rebounds. Sophomore guard Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham, Effingham High) chipped in 14 points on 6-of-20 shooting and recorded four assists and seven steals.

For CCCB, sophomore guard Kelsi Mueller (Eldon, Mo.) led the team with 21 points on 7-of-10 shooting. Senior forward Mazie Dowdy (Eldon, Mo.) was right behind Mueller with 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting and nine rebounds.
