LCU women's basketball: Lady Chaps fall at Tarleton State 74-64

STEPHENVILLE, Texas (November 18, 2010) – The good news for No.20 Lubbock Christian University… they do not compete in the NCAA Div. II Lone Star Conference. The Lady Chaparrals fell to 0-3 against Lone Star Conference squads, falling 74-64 despite shooting 58.1% from the field Thursday night at a boisterous crowd of 1,114 at Wisdom Gym.

Neither team had more than a five-point lead in the opening half, which contained eight lead changes. Emily Atkins and Whitney Wehmeyer each had 11 points in the opening half for LCU and they combined for 16 of the first 18 Lady Chaps points.  Their biggest deficit in the half came with 11:17 remaining, trailing 20-15, but LCU responded with an 11-1 run sparked by a three-point field goal by Severyn Smith.  The TexAnns would come back to close the half on a 9-2 run to take a 37-33 lead into the break. LCU trailed at the half despite out-shooting TSU 59.1% (13/22) to 34.4% (11/32) from the field in the half.

The momentum for TSU continued in the second half, as they built the lead to 43-35 three minutes into the half. They maintained the lead, building it to its largest at 54-45 with 10:45 to go, before Brittany Hampton hit a three-pointer and a jumper to quickly cut the deficit to 54-50. With eight minutes remaining, the TexAnns answered back with a 5-0 run to wipe out Hampton's efforts. With under two minutes remaining, LCU cut the deficit to 65-59, but TSU hit their free throws down the stretch to hold off any Lady Chaps comeback attempt.

LCU was 25-of-43 from the field (58.1%), but they were plagued by 31 turnovers and TSU out-scored LCU 16-4 in second chance points. Shelby Adamson led all scorers, posting 26 points for the TexAnns.  They also received 17 from Morgan Stehling.  LCU had four players in double figures in points, with Wehmeyer and Atkins each finishing with 16. Hampton finished with 13 points and smith had 11 points in the loss.

Lubbock Christian falls to 2-3 on the season, with all three losses coming on the road at NCAA Div. II programs.  TSU improves to 2-0.  The Lady Chaps now head into Sooner Athletic Conference play Monday, hosting Wayland Baptist University at 6.
