[January 20, 2014]  GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  The Lincoln Christian University Red Lions women's basketball team went north this weekend to meet regional opponents Kuyper College.

The LCU women played against the Kuyper Cougars at 1 p.m. Saturday. The Cougars, a Mid-West Region NCCAA opponent, have struggled this year, with only two wins coming into this contest against a Red Lions offense that has seen two straight victories.

After a contentious first half that saw LCU leading by the narrow five-point margin of 33-28, things were looking promising for another win. The second half had its own story, though, and saw the Cougars go to the charity stripe 24 times, where they took advantage of the opportunity by hitting 20. With the Cougars outscoring the Red Lions from both the free-throw line and the 3-point arc, LCU was outdone by 15 points in the second half, leaving them 10 points short of the Kuyper Cougars, 74-64.

Junior guard Tatiana Colclasure (Effingham/Effingham High) had a breakout game with 27 points, leading all scorers.

The LCU Red Lions travel to Chicago on Tuesday to face Moody Bible Institute.
