Second half drought dooms women's basketball against IU-Southeast
Wilmore, KY - Freshman Brooke Jensen scored on a Sarah Yates assist to put the Eagles up 43-40 with 17:20 left in the game, but Asbury would only get one more field goal over the next 16 minutes on a basket by Sarah Yates with 11:14 left. Indiana-Southeast would make it a 30-11 run over the same time, leading 70-54 before Lauren Lee would convert from the field at 1:32 left. Overall in the second half, the Lady Grenadiers would shoot 15-of-31 from the field for 48.4% while Asbury would only have six field goals all told, shooting 6-of-22 for 27.3%.
The Eagles were led in scoring by Sarah Yates off the bench with 15 points while Morgan Freeman would grab seven rebounds, also coming in a reserve role. Foul trouble also combined with the shooting woes as Anna Stephenson and Jenny Bunge would be on the bench with four fouls apiece with over 14 minutes remaining in the contest.
The loss drops Asbury to 10-12 overall, 3-3 in KIAC play. The women will next be in action as they will travel to Berea on Thursday night for a rematch against the Lady Mountaineers. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m. The Eagles will next be at home when they step out of conference play for a game against Rochester (Mich.) on Saturday. The game is the first of a women's-men's doubleheader, set to tipoff at 1:00 p.m. As always, the game can be heard on WACW, Asbury's home on the internet.
