Lady Mounties Up The Ante Against Eagles

Feb. 10 - With a ten game winning streak, sizeable player achievements, and some of the highest scoring in the NAIA, last night's win against the Lady Asbury Eagles was the icing on the cake. Averaging over 100 points per game, the Lady Mountaineers are now (20-5) this season, having beaten Alice Lloyd, Indiana University Southeast, Midway, and now Asbury.

The Lady Mountaineers dominated on the court, shooting at 57%.

Once again, Coach Harkleroad's strategy of mass-player substitutions paid off in an open and shut rematch against the Eagles. The first match up of the two teams resulted in a win for BC, 90 - 68, and last night proved to be no different. Substituting three to five players nearly every ten minutes, the Lady Mountaineers seemed to have two teams, both of which dominated the court.

By halftime, the score was more than doubled at 58 -25. The pressure was just as strong in the second half with the Mountaineers only allowing Asbury 37 points in the final 20 minutes. Leading the ladies in point scoring was LaShondra Gray, a freshman from Shelbyville, KY scoring 24 points, shooting at 66 percent in the three-point range. After mounting crowd excitement, the Lady Mountaineers finished with a triple digit score of 106 - 62.

The Ladies play again February 10 at 5:30 pm against Mid-Continent College, preceding the men's game also against Mid-Continent at 7:30 pm.
