Women's basketball struggles against prolific Bruins in Battle

NASHVILLE – The Lipscomb (2-7) women’s basketball team started out strong but could not keep up with rival Belmont’s high-powered offense as the Bruins (8-2) won the 74th iteration of the Battle of the Boulevard 91-59.

The Lady Bisons trailed just 22-14 after the first quarter, but Belmont came out firing in the second frame and did not look back

Sophomore Lauren Rau had a career day, posting personal-bests in points (17), and rebounds (four). She also led the team with four assists.

Seniors Loren Cagle, Loshaveon Jones, Riley Northway also scored in double-figures.

Cagle notched 15 points and three assists, Northway added 10 points and five rebounds, and Jones earned 11 points.

 

QUICK HITS:

  • Six Bruins notched double-figures: Darby Maggard (22), Kylee Smith (17), Maddie Wright (14), Sierra Jones (12), Jenny Roy (10), and Caitlyn Yost (10).
  • Lipscomb was out-rebounded 44-30, and the assist battle at 16-12.
  • Eight Lady Bisons played 10 or more minutes: Cagle and Rau tied for a team-high 28 minutes, Jones, Northway, Kennedy Potts, Lexi Manos, Kaylee Cotton, and Emily Kmec.
  • Belmont scored 28 points in the paint compared to Lipscomb’s 20.
  • Lipscomb forced 12 turnovers and gave up 7.
  • The Purple and Gold shot 8-23 from three-point range, and the Eagles shot 4-24 from deep.
