The ladies from Lincoln Christian controlled the game from beginning
to end, rolling out to a comfortable 12-point lead
over the visitors by the half, when the Red Lions went into the
locker room up 44-32. While the second half wasn't as productive
offensively for either team, LCU controlled the pace and stretched
the lead to a final score of 68-49.
Junior guard Tatiana
Colclasure (Effingham/Effingham High) had a stellar game with four
buckets from outside the arc, a 57 percent 3-point percentage, and
led all scorers with 26 points. Senior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick
(Mount Vernon/John A. Logan CC) also made a double-digit
contribution with 12, followed by senior forward Sopha Hughes
(Chicago/Oblong High) with 10 points.

The men's and women's teams were scheduled to host Kuyper College on Saturday,
along with the induction of two new members
to the LCU Athletic Hall of Fame, but the games and induction
ceremony have been postponed due to weather.
