Lady Chaps Defeat Roger State University

LUBBOCK, Texas -  No. 11 Lubbock Christian University received points from ten of 11 players that touched the floor, including an 18-point performance from Shamika Singleton, as the Chaparrals defeated Rogers State University 78-54 Saturday afternoon in a Sooner Athletic Conference match-up at Rip Griffin Center.

LCU spread out the offense early, as eight different players figured into the first-half scoring.  The Lady Chaps only trailed when the score was 4-3 and prior to a 7-0 run that gave LCU a slim lead.  LCU used another run midway through the second half, as a 10-0 run built the Lady Chaps lead to 31-14.  Ashley Coggins had eight of her 11 points in the first half, as LCU took a 40-23 lead.  A 20-5 run to start the second half provided LCU with their largest lead 60-28.  Singleton's play highlighted the second half for LCU.  She was 4-of-6 from the field for 11 points in the half.  Rogers State was never within 21 in the second half.

Hillcats forward Katie Rice posted a game-high 20 points, while Azzie Knox posted a double-double with 10 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. RSU posted 17 offensive rebounds, leading to 14 second chance points.  Singleton had a single-game team-high three rebounds and team-high eight rebounds in the game to go along with her 18 points, which was two shy of her career high.  The LCU defense forced 17 turnovers and held RSU to shooting 34.8% in the game (23/66) and 8.3% from three-point range (1/12).

LCU improves to 18-3 overall with the win and 7-6 in Sooner Athletic Conference action.  With Oklahoma Baptist defeating Oklahoma Christian and Oklahoma City defeating Southern Nazarene, the Lady Chaps remain tied in second place with Oklahoma City University and a game behind Oklahoma Baptist.  LCU hosts Oklahoma City Thursday at 6 p.m., as they seek to extend a five-game winning streak.
