MONTGOMERY, Ala.—Senior Lori Bonds scored in double figures
for the seventh time this season, but the Huntingdon women’s basketball
team converted just 23 percent of its shots from the floor, as the Lady
Hawks fell to NAIA foe Brescia, 72-47, Sunday at Roland Arena.
The Lady Hawks converted just 17-of-72 shots from the floor, including 3-of-20 from behind the arc.
Huntingdon (1-12) raced out to a 20-11 lead, following a four-point
play by freshman Devin Douglas with 11:07 remaining in the opening
period. However, the Lady Hawks went cold for the rest of the half,
missing their next 18 shots, before finally ending a 19-0 spurt by the
Bearcats (9-9) on a pair of free throws by sophomore Jessi Andrews with
1:04 left before the intermission.
The shooting woes continued for the Lady Hawks in the second half,
as they converted just 22.2 percent of their field goal attempts, while
Brescia shot 45.8 percent from the field during the same span.
Bonds was the lone player in double figures for Huntingdon, while
fellow senior Kayla Schuran added nine points. Douglas chipped in eight
points off the bench.
Clarissa Houston led the Bearcats with 17 points, while Hollie Anson
added 10 points. Erika Murphy finished with a game-high 13 rebounds,
while adding six points and six blocks.
The Lady Hawks committed a season-low nine turnovers, but was outrebounded by the Bearcats 53-42.
Huntingdon will return to action on Wednesday, January 20, when it hosts Wesleyan at 5 p.m.
