Good as Advertised:
The Lady Eagles basketball squad from Williams Baptist College hosted the top ranked team in the NAIA on Thursday evening. The Lady Lions from Freed-Hardeman University proved as good as advertised as they came away with a 96-47 blowout victory.
The Lady Lions played well on both ends of the floor, holding WBC to 31 percent shooting, while shooting 52 percent themselves. FHU also took advantage of 18 Lady Eagles turnovers and converted them into 28 points. In addition, Williams was outrebounded 48-to-32 in the contest.
Six girls scored at least six points for WBC. Abby Webb (FR/Harrison, Ark. ) came off the bench to tie her career-high of seven points. The freshman scored five of the points at the free-throw line and made her lone field goal attempt.
Taylor Williams (SR/Mountain Home, Ark. ), Andrea Moffitt (SR/Lexington, Tenn. ), and Alexus Clardy (SR/Conway, Ark. ) all scored seven points in the game. Taylar Harris (JR/Joiner, Ark. ) and Alytrius Perry (SR/Marked Tree, Ark. ) chipped in with six.
The loss drops Williams into the final playoff spot in the American Midwest Conference Tournament. They currently sit in eighth place, .5 game behind seventh place Missouri Baptist University. They are 1.5 games and hold the tiebreaker over ninth place Stephens College. There are six games remaining before the tournament.
The Lady Eagles will bounce back on the court Saturday, Feb. 11, when they host ninth ranked Lyon College. The game will start at 1 p.m.
