Lady Hawks Basketball Falls to LaGrange, 109-57

LAGRANGE, Ga. -- The Huntingdon College women's basketball team (6-9, 3-4 GSAC) could not contain LaGrange College (13-1, 6-1 GSAC), falling 109-57 on Saturday afternoon at Mariotti Gymnasium.  The most glaring advantage of the game came at the free-throw line, where LaGrange converted 33-of-40 (82.5 percent) free-throws, compared to 9-of-24 (37.5 percent) by the Lady Hawks.

Sophomore Devin Douglas led the Lady Hawks with a 10 point effort, followed by junior LaTerrial Williams' 7 points and 7 rebounds, and freshman Jodi Thomas' 7 points and 6 rebounds in 10 minutes of action.  For the game, the Lady Hawks got point production from 11 different individuals.

LaGrange opened the game with a 10-0 run, six points of which came from the foul line.  The Lady Hawks came within eight on Douglas' basket at the 9:17 mark.  That would be the closest the Lady Hawks would get from that point on as the Panthers continued their run in the second half.

Leading the Panthers was  Katie Covington, who finished with 23 points and 15 rebounds while hitting a perfect 17-of-17 from the free-throw line.

For the game, LaGrange held a 63-38 advantage on the glass.  The Panthers hit on 50 percent of their shots, knocking down 33-of-66, while Huntingdon finished 22-of-75 for 29 percent.

The Lady Hawks return to action Wednesday, January 26, as they welcome new Great South member Covenant College.  Game time is scheduled for 5 p.m. in Catherine Dixon Roland Arena.
