Asbury Fends Off Upset Minded Cincinnati Christian
CINCINNATI, Ohio - The Eagles trailed nearly the whole way, but Kylee Gorby and the Eagles led when it counted. The Eagles overcame their hosts late in the contest and pulled out a crucial 91-87 win to keep pace in the KIAC race.
Gorby led the Eagles with 19 while Catie Fletcher added 17 and Annissia Wood had 16. Freshman Brittany Warren pitched in 11 of her own.
Both teams shot well on the night, perhaps some insight to the 54-50 halftime score. The Eagles knocked down 42.9 percent of the their shots, and CCU shot even better at 52.7 percent.
The Eagles host Alice Lloyd College on Thursday in a huge matchup with big time implications for the KIAC Playoff picture. The Eagles are chasing the KIAC's no. 1 season and the title of KIAC Regular season Champions. Thursday night's game is slated for a 6 p.m. tip.
Thursday night's game will feature a special promotion as the Eagles will be giving away two lower level tickets to the final two regular season games for UK basketball. Two tickets will be given away at halftime of both the women's and men's game. The game will also be a whiteout game, and fans who come wearing a white shirt can have their name entered twice into the drawing!
