[January 26, 2013]  Friday night the Lincoln Christian University women's basketball team played their first game since last weekend, hosting Calvary Bible College out of Kansas City, Mo. It was a close game throughout, but at the end LCU (5-8) pulled away to seal the win with a score of 54-43.

LCU came out and grabbed the lead from the beginning, leading by as many as nine points within the first 10 minutes of the first half. CBC (3-9) fought back to tie it up and kept the game close going into halftime, with LCU up only 20-19.

The first 15 minutes of the second half was much of the same, as the two teams struggled back and forth to grab a lead that was larger than five points. With five minutes left in the game, LCU was able to pull away when they went up by 11 points, as they were able to handle and take advantage of the defensive pressure that CBC began to put on.

For CBC, the game might have come down to turnovers, as they gave the ball away 21 times during the game, compared with LCU's 15 turnovers.

LCU was led in scoring by sophomore guard, Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham, Effingham High), as she put up 23 points on 7-of-20 shooting, while also going 7 of 10 from the free-throw line. She also had five rebounds, four assists and five steals. Sophomore forward Alicia Carson (Gobles, Mich., Bloomingdale High) had the game's only double-double as she put up 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting, while also grabbing 12 rebounds.

LCU will return to the court Saturday as they host Principia College (2-12) at 1 p.m. at the Laughlin Center.
