Women's basketball prevails late over Kentucky Christian, 71-64
WILMORE, KY - Asbury used a 12-5 run down the stretch, fueled by a three-point play by sophomore Sarah Yates to give Asbury a 61-59 lead with 2:01 remaining, turning it into the 71-64 final margin thanks to free throws.
The Eagles earned the win in nearly every category, out rebounding the Lady Knights, 45-38 while also ending their shooting woes by going 24-of-56 from the field for 42.9 percent, up from the two games previous where the team shot only 29.7 percent on 38-of-128 shooting. The Eagles were led in scoring by Lindsey Wood with 21 points, including 9 rebounds. Three others scored in double figures with Anna Stephenson's 15, Sarah Yates with 12, and Lauren Lee with 11 points. Stephenson would also record five blocks, helping Asbury to their first win over KCU since Feb. 18, 2003, a 69-61 win for the Eagles.
The team looks to continue forward momentum as they will take on Berea College on Saturday at home. Game time is set for 2:00 p.m. and will be broadcast live on WACW , Asbury's home on the internet.
