As the women played the first game at Emmaus, the Red Lions
jumped out to a 22-0 lead and never looked back. In a game where
every LCU player scored, the outcome was never in question. In
the end, LCU dominated every aspect of the game, leading to an
85-29 win over the Emmaus Eagles.
The LCU women were led in
scoring by junior guard Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham/Effingham
High) and freshman transfer center Betty Elliot (Crawfordsville,Ind./
IUPUI), both with 15 points.
The LCU men's team also dominated in the second game of the
day. They took an early lead and went to the locker room at
halftime with as secure a lead as any team would want at 47-25.
With every player scoring at least one bucket, LCU finished
their first game of the season north of the century mark in a
dominating 102-60 performance.
LCU freshman Jimmy Smylie (Springfield/Calvary Academy) led
LCU's offense with 21 points, followed by senior David Graves
(Eustace, Texas/Eustace High) with 18 points. LCU sophomore
Raymond Shegog, (Sun River Terrace/Lincoln College) dominated
the boards and led everyone with 12 rebounds, capping LCU's
total of 43 for night.
Both teams return to the court Tuesday. The women travel to
Ankeny, Iowa, to match up with Faith Baptist Bible College,
while the men head south to St. Louis to face Concordia
