LWC Women's Basketball rolls past Hiwassee 97-68
21st consecutive win comes before hometown crowd of 400 in Biggers Sports Center
COLUMBIA, KY (Thu 26 Jan 2017) - The Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team rolled past Hiwassee (TN) 97-68 en route to the program's 21st-consecutive victory on Thursday evening at Biggers Sports Center.
The fourth-ranked Blue Raiders (21-0) were nearly perfect from the free throw stripe, connecting on a season-best 24-of-25 attempts (96.0 percent). Hiwassee drops to 13-4 with the loss.
Heidi Huffman scored a season-high 16 points and Kayla Styles matched her with 16 and a team-high seven rebounds. Courtney Sandlin also went into double figures with 12. J'Nayah Hall stuffed the stat sheet with nine points, six boards, four assists, a steal and a block. Chanel Roberts and Kayla Richardson also went for nine points.
It was all Lindsey Wilson early as the Blue Raiders started the contest on a 15-0 run. LWC hit seven of their first eight shots, while holding Hiwassee to a 0-for-5 mark with a pair of turnovers during the stretch.
The two teams exchanged points over the final six minutes of the opening quarter, but the strong start helped Lindsey Wilson take a 29-13 lead into the second quarter.
The Blue Raiders continued to build on that lead, stretching it to as many as 19 in the first half. Hiwassee slowly closed the gap, trimming the advantage down to a dozen points at the 1:11 mark, but Courtney Sandlin scored five-straight points to help Lindsey Wilson take a 49-32 lead into the lockerroom.
LWC struggled from the floor in the first half, hitting 15-of-40 shots (37.5 percent) and went 2-for-13 from beyond the arc, but the Blue Raiders made 17-of-18 free throws and turned the ball over just four times. Lindsey Wilson did come away with six steals and 11 offensive rebounds that turned into 10 second-chance points.
Hiwassee hit 41.4 percent from the floor but made just one three pointer and connected on 7-of-8 free throw attempts. The Tigers turned the ball over 13 times and were out-rebounded 23-20.
The Blue Raiders improved their shooting accuracy in the third quarter to 52.9 percent, stretching the lead to as many as 28 following a Huffman three pointer that made it 73-45 with 2:16 to play in the quarter. Hiwassee never got closer than 13 points for the remainder of the game.
Lindsey Wilson continued to cruise in the final quarter, outscoring the Tigers 24-18 in the 10-minute period to come away with the 29-point victory.
LWC finished the game shooting 44.0 percent compared to 44.6 percent by the Tigers, while the Blue Raiders out-rebounded Hiwassee 43-35.
Kathaleen Alomar led the Tigers with a game-high 20 points in the loss.
