Women's hoops suffers road loss to tough Cincinnati squad

NASHVILLE – The Lipscomb women’s basketball team turned in a hard-fought performance on Saturday afternoon, but it wasn’t enough as the Lady Bisons fell to Cincinnati 71-55 at the Fifth Third Bank Arena.

The Lady Bisons (2-4) had strong showings in the first and third quarters, but were undone by pour second and fourth quarter outings.

Cincinnati (5-2) and Lipscomb traded baskets early on, peaking with a 19-19 tie early in the second quarter.

The stalemate was immediately followed by a 20-0 Bearcats run to push the game open heading into the second half.

Lipscomb came out strong in the third frame, highlighted by an 11-point quarter from sophomore Taylor Clark (her only points of the game), cutting the 20-point Cincinnati lead down to 12. But, the Bearcats rode a strong fourth quarter to the 16-point win.

Freshman Kailey Rosenbaum joined Clark in double-figures, pacing the team with 12 points and seven rebounds.

 

BISON TIDBITS:

  • Nine of 10 Lady Bisons who saw action scored.
  • Junior Lexi Manos had a team-high three steals, while fellow juniors Carleigh Short and Anna Hammaker swiped two each.
  • Hammaker grabbed five rebounds, and Short dished out a team-best three assists.
  • Cincinnati out-rebounded Lipscomb 35-24, and notched 18 assists to Lipscomb’s 10.
  • The two teams tied with 26 point in the paint each.
  • Lipscomb notched 18 bench points and 15 points off turnovers.
  • Eight Lady Bisons played 10 or more minutes: Redshirt-sophomore Emily Kmec with a team-high 31 minutes, Clark, Hammaker, Rosenbaum, Manos, Short, and freshmen Jane Deason and Keely Morrow.
