[January 21, 2013]  GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The Lincoln Christian University women's basketball team traveled to Grand Rapids, Mich., Friday to take on the Cougars of Kuyper College. LCU (4-7) grabbed the lead from the beginning and did not look back as they blew past KC 65-40 in winning their fourth game of the year.

The LCU women dominated Kuyper early and often. LCU began the game by grabbing a 14-point lead; however, KC fought back to cut the lead to four points at the 18-14 mark. LCU responded, though, and closed out the first half with a double-digit lead. The second half was all LCU as they were able to extend their lead and win the game by 25 points.

LCU was able to dominate the boards as they outrebounded Kuyper 43-26, with sophomore forward Alicia Carson (Gobles, Mich., Bloomingdale High) leading the way with 15 rebounds of her own. LCU shot 46 percent from the floor for the night, compared with Kuyper's 6 percent.

LCU was led in scoring by sophomore guard Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham, Effingham High), as she put down 27 points on 12-of-24 shooting, while also grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out seven assists. Junior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick (Mount Vernon, Mount Vernon Township), followed Colclasure in scoring with 18 points on 8-of-18 shooting, while also grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out six assists. The only other person to grab a double-double in the game was Carson, as she had 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting, to go along with her 15 rebounds.
