Lady Chaps Win Seventh Straight Over MACU

The No. 10 Lubbock Christian University Lady Chaparrals used a 52.4% second half shooting performance to pull away from Mid-America Christian 70-57 Saturday afternoon in Sooner Athletic Conference action at the Rip Griffin Center.  The win not only improves LCU's record to 20-3 overall and 12-2 in conference play, but it is the fourth consecutive 20-win season and the fifth in program history.

The opening half was sluggish with LCU shooting 34.6% (9/26) and MACU shooting 17.9% (5/28).  Shamika Singleton and Sierra Lovorn each had six points in the opening half and helped the Lady Chaps to a 27-20 halftime lead.

Things changed for LCU in the second half.  They opened the half with a 19-7 run for a 46-27 lead.  The run carried the Lady Chaps the rest of the way, as the Lady Evangels never moved within nine points of the Lady Chaps.

LCU held MACU to 30.5% shooting in the contest (18/59), while the Lady Chaps finished 20/47 from the field (42.6%).  The Lady Chaps took advantage of 30 free-throw attempts by nailing 26 of them.  Lovorn, who finished with 13 points, went 8-for-8 from the line.  Ashley Coggins, coming of a career-high 23-point performance, led the Lady Chaps with 16 points and seven rebounds.  Singleton also tallied double-figures with 10 points.  MACU was led by Tiphani Eaves with 13 points, and Treasure McCoy had a game-high 11 rebounds.

The Lady Chaps have now won seven straight games and they went a perfect 6-0 in the six-game home stand.  LCU will hit the road Monday with a contest at Wayland Baptist at 6 p.m.
