[February 17, 2014]  KANSAS CITY, Mo.  The Lincoln Christian University Red Lions women's basketball team (9-9) braved the winter weather to make a trip to Kansas City, Mo., to meet the Warriors from Calvary Bible College on Friday. The decision to go in the treacherous weather worked to the Red Lions' advantage as they earned their sixth consecutive win, their 10th of the season.

The Red Lions ladies led this game from the beginning and never looked back. LCU finished the first stanza and headed into the locker room up 27-12. They added five more points to their margin in the second half, finishing with a 57-37 win.

Junior forward Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham/Effingham High) had 20 points to lead all scorers. Senior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick (Mount Vernon/John A. Logan CC) contributed 10 points. The Red Lions controlled the boards as well, outrebounding the Lady Warriors 47-34. LCU junior forward Alicia Carson (Gobles, Mich./Bloomingdale High) had 12 rebounds.

The LCU men's and women's teams were scheduled to meet up in Moberly, Mo., on Saturday to face Central Christian College of the Bible. In previous meetings with CCCB at the Laughlin Center, both LCU teams earned wins, and they felt good about adding to the positive column of their records again on Saturday night.
