[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
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.

(Alta Vista, Kan.) chipped in 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting,
while also grabbing eight rebounds.
