Eagles Sweep Super 8
GRAYSON, Ky. – Asbury women’s basketball defeated Kentucky Christian 83-73 to finish the Super 8 Classic a perfect 3-0. The Eagles are now 4-2 on the season while the Lady Knights fall to 2-5.
Trenia Barbee scored all 22 of her points in the first half and Laura Carroll scored 15 of her 23 in the second half as the Eagles sweep the Super 8 Classic for the second time in as many trips. They last competed in the 2010 rendition.
Both teams shot 45 percent from the floor but the Eagles took better care of the ball turning it over only 10 times compared to 22 for KCU. Carroll connected on 7-of-8 free throws as the team made 14-of-16. KCU made 15-of-19.
Carroll missed the last two games due to student teaching responsibilities but didn’t miss a beat in her return to the starting lineup. Lakin Griffith and Chelsea Clark also missed the last two games. Griffith scored 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting, knocking down both three-point attempts. Clark handed out a team-high five assists.
The Eagles return home for the Zweifel/Pritchett Classic co-hosted by the AU men’s team beginning on Friday. The women will play at 6pm on Friday and 4pm on Saturday. The men will follow each day.
