Ranked for a Reason:
The Williams Baptist College Lady Eagles traveled to Columbia College on Saturday to take on the 12th ranked team in the NAIA. The Cougars showed why they were so highly touted, nearly doubling WBC 107-55.
Williams struggled offensively, making only 3-of-21 shots from 3-point range. Meanwhile, the Cougars were on fire from distance, making 15-of-29 for 52 percent. The Lady Eagles fared much better from inside the 3-point line, making 15-of-31 shots.
The Cougars finished the game with 23 assists on their 39 made baskets, while WBC managed five on 18 made shots.
The Lady Eagles committed 27 turnovers in the game, which led to 32 Cougar points.
Ten Lady Eagles scored in the contest, including six players off the bench.
Andrea Moffitt (SR/Lexington, Tenn. ) led the team with 13 points and eight rebounds. Alexus Clardy (SR/Conway, Ark. ) scored seven of her nine points from the free throw and made her only shot from the field.
Off the bench, Taylor Williams (SR/Mountain Home, Ark. ) and Tashanescii Walker (FR/Jonesboro, Ark. ) paced WBC with six points a piece. Cassie Roberts (SR/Couch, Mo. ) and Da'Monique Brown (JR/Luxora, Ark. ) scored four, and Tia Brazell (FR/Benton, Ark.) and Abby Webb (FR/Harrison, Ark. ) chipped in with two to round out the scoring.
The loss drops the Lady Eagles into ninth place in the American Midwest Conference. They sit .5 game behind the eighth and final playoff spot held by Stephens College. Stephens has one conference game remaining against William Woods University. Meanwhile, WBC has two AMC games remaining. They will host Missouri Baptist University on Feb. 23, and then wrap up the regular season on Feb. 25, versus St. Louis College of Pharmacy.
