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.
