DELAND, Fla. – The Lipscomb women’s basketball team slow start led to a 76-49 loss at Stetson on Saturday in the Edmunds Center in DeLand, Florida.
The Lady Bisons (2-17, 0-6) fell behind the Hatters (9-11, 4-2) early and were not able to recover.
Junior Lauren Rau paced Lipscomb with team highs of 14 points and five assists. The point guard shot a perfect 8-8 clip from the free throw line.
Sophomore Taylor Clark joined Rau in double-figures with 11 points, including two three-pointers. It was her 13th double-digit scoring output of the season, and fifth in the last six games.
Freshman Jane Deason added six points and led the team with four rebounds and two steals.
After going down 17-5 in the first quarter, the Lady Bisons were able to play Stetson close through the remaining three quarters, but the Hatters had built too much of an early lead for Lipscomb to overcome.
- Freshman Keely Morrow and junior Lexi Manos tied Deason with four rebounds apiece.
- Lipscomb shot 10-12 from the free throw line, but just 5-26 from beyond the arc.
- Stetson out-rebounded Lipscomb 50-27, and had 27 assists to Lipscomb’s 11.
- Lipscomb forced 16 turnovers, and only gave up 13 to win the turnover margin by three.
- Nine Lady Bisons played 10 or more minutes, led by 31 from Rau.
Lipscomb will be back in Allen Arena on Tuesday with ASUN newcomer Liberty coming to town. Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m.
