The Lady Lions got into foul trouble early in the first quarter as the Lady Pilots forced them to play at a quicker pace than wanted. After the Lady Lions settled in, they outscored LSUS 23-10 in the fourth quarter, but numerous turnovers kept SAGU out of position to score.
The Lady Lions were led by Freshman, Kiara Glenn, with 16 points and three assists. Eva Atunuwa led the Lady Lions in rebounds with 11.
Christina Devers led the Lady Pilots with 26 points.
Head Coach Tiffany Phillips said, “I thought once we settled down in the second half we played pretty even with them. They are a good team and will win a lot of games in the Red River conference. We had a chance to watch them in our classic beat a very good Oklahoma City University team and knew they played fast. We just did not adjust quickly enough. We have to do a better job of playing with pace. We are excited to get back to work and start conference play Thursday.”
