Lady Knights Lose and Win
On Friday, November 1, the KCU Women's Basketball team traveled to Morehead to take on the Eagles Women's basketball team. It is not often that a very small NAIA school plays a NCAA D-1 school in any sport, and it is even less often when that NAIA school is competitive, but the Lady Knights were competitive. The game ended with a 22-point advantage to Morehead, but there were several things for Coach Arnett to be pleased with.
From the field, KCU shot 47% for the game, and 50% from 3-point range in the first half. They were 73% from the line. Both teams pulled down 26 defensive rebounds, but MSU had the advantage on the offensive glass, 17-6. Morehead State doubled KCU's first half point production of 28 points with 56 of their own, but KCU outscored MSU in the second half 45-39.
Tanya Bowens led all scorers with 34 points, and pulled down 5 boards. Jana Glick was 6 of 8 from the field, and tossed in 12, plus 4 rebounds. Transfer Ashleigh Gyalog had 10 points, thanks to going 8 of 8 from the free throw line. Sharonda Jones and Allie Slone each had 5 points. Morehead State had 5 in double figures, including Terrice Robinson who dropped 23, and Allie Turner who had 17.
On Saturday, the Lady Knights traveled Ohio Christian University in Circleville, OH to play Central Christian College of the Bible. There are no stats available at the time of this article, but KCU won 83-41. The Lady Knights are next in action in another major college scrimmage on Monday when they travel to Huntington, WV to take on Marshall University.
