The LCU women played at 5:30 p.m. just outside Des Moines
against the Faith Baptist Eagles. The Eagles, a regular NCCAA
opponent, have struggled this year and continued to do so
against a surging LCU offense. The Red Lions dominated the first
half, outscoring the Eagles by 20 points and going into the
locker room with a solid 39-19 lead. While the second half was
much closer, the Eagles couldn't close the gap. The Red Lions
took a 55-37 win, their fourth of the season and their second
straight since returning from an extended road trip in Oklahoma
to begin the year.
Senior guard Moriah Kirkpatrick (Mount
Vernon/John A. Logan Community College) led the scoring for the
Red Lions with 14 points, followed by junior guard Tatiana
Colclasure (Effingham/Effingham High) with 11.
The LCU men's team went south to meet Concordia Seminary in
St. Louis. Just like the women's team, the LCU men controlled
the first half of their game. Jumping out to an early lead and
not looking back, LCU went to the locker room with a comfortable
54-36 lead. In the second half they extended the lead to a final
score of 91-67. This is the Red Lions' second straight win and
sixth on the season.
Senior guard Brian Dyal (Rockford/Berean Christian High)
contributed the team high of 19 points, followed by sophomore
forward Raymond Shegog (Sun River Terrace/Lincoln College), who
had 15 points and led in rebounds with 10.
Both teams get back into action this weekend. The women's
team travels to Michigan to meet regional opponents Grace Bible
College on Friday and Kuyper College on Saturday. The LCU men
will host Grace Bible College in Gaston Arena at the Laughlin
Center at 7 p.m. Saturday.
