Rally comes up short for Eagles
Wilmore, KY---The Asbury College Women's Basketball team fell to Indiana Southeast Saturday afternoon in the Luce Center 59-54. The Eagles would have a chance late but a 3-pointer from Andrea Chambers with 38 seconds left to give the Grenadiers a four point lead. Asbury would miss a shot and Anna Stephenson fouled out with 19 seconds left. After two IUS missed free throws the Eagles would have another chance but a double dribble call on Courtney Albin would end any hope. IUS would knock down one of two free throws and a late second three would fall short for Asbury.
Asbury (6-14, 0-3) was led in scoring by Stephenson who poured in 19, scoring mainly from the free throw line where she went 11-of-12. Stephenson would also lead the team with eight rebounds. Freshmen Ellen Gray and Haley Spivey would both end up in double figures with 11 and 10 respectively.
The Eagles would out rebound the Grenadiers on the afternoon 39 to 35 but would turn the ball over 26 times. Neither team would shoot very well from the floor with Asbury finishing at 33% and IUS at 42%. IUS kept giving the Eagles hope by going 14-of-29 from the free throw line. Asbury was 21-for-27 from the charity stripe.
Asbury will travel to Cincinnati Christian University on Tuesday, for a match up with the Eagles at 5:30. Then they will head to St. Louis to take on St. Louis College of Pharmacy on Saturday January 31 at 1pm. The men will follow on both days. The Eagles' next home game will be Tuesday February 3rd at 7pm against Transylvania University.
