Cold Shooting Dooms Lady Hawks in 72-47 Loss to Brescia

MONTGOMERY, Ala.—Senior Lori Bonds scored in double figures for the seventh time this season, but the Huntingdon women’s basketball team converted just 23 percent of its shots from the floor, as the Lady Hawks fell to NAIA foe Brescia, 72-47, Sunday at Roland Arena.

The Lady Hawks converted just 17-of-72 shots from the floor, including 3-of-20 from behind the arc.

Huntingdon (1-12) raced out to a 20-11 lead, following a four-point play by freshman Devin Douglas with 11:07 remaining in the opening period. However, the Lady Hawks went cold for the rest of the half, missing their next 18 shots, before finally ending a 19-0 spurt by the Bearcats (9-9) on a pair of free throws by sophomore Jessi Andrews with 1:04 left before the intermission.

The shooting woes continued for the Lady Hawks in the second half, as they converted just 22.2 percent of their field goal attempts, while Brescia shot 45.8 percent from the field during the same span.

Bonds was the lone player in double figures for Huntingdon, while fellow senior Kayla Schuran added nine points. Douglas chipped in eight points off the bench.

Clarissa Houston led the Bearcats with 17 points, while Hollie Anson added 10 points. Erika Murphy finished with a game-high 13 rebounds, while adding six points and six blocks.

The Lady Hawks committed a season-low nine turnovers, but was outrebounded by the Bearcats 53-42.

Huntingdon will return to action on Wednesday, January 20, when it hosts Wesleyan at 5 p.m.
