Lipscomb (2-16, 0-5) got out to a slow start, while FGCU (14-4, 5-0) capitalized and never gave up the lead.

Freshman Jane Deason had another strong shooting night, tying for the team lead with 11 points on 4-6 shooting, including 3-5 from three-point range.

It was her sixth double-digit scoring output of the season, and second in the last three games.
