[February 05, 2014]  The Lincoln Christian University Red Lions women's basketball team (6-9) hosted the Saints from Central Christian College of the Bible (14-8) on Monday at 7 p.m. in Gaston Arena, where the home team earned a third consecutive win and the seventh of the season.

The ladies from Lincoln Christian controlled the game from beginning to end Monday night, rolling out to a comfortable eight-point lead over the visitors just five minutes into the first half. The Red Lions went into the locker room up 44-31. The second half saw LCU pull away with a dominating performance and stretched the lead to a final score of 77-59.

Senior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick (Mount Vernon/John A. Logan CC) was back in form, leading all scorers with 18 points, followed closely by junior guard Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham/Effingham High) with 16 points. Former volleyball national tournament standout and junior guard Alicia Carson (Gobles, Mich./Bloomingdale High) also made a double-digit contribution with 10.
