LWC Women's Basketball faces CU today in the MSC Semifinals

By Christopher Coombs

Bowling Green, KY - Third-seeded Lindsey Wilson women's basketball faces second-seeded Campbellsville (KY) today in the Mid-South Conference Tournament semifinals at Studle Financial Arena.

Today's game is slated to tip at 2:30pmCT. The winner advances to Tuesday's championship, also in Bowling Green.

No. 11-ranked Lindsey Wilson (19-4) advanced to Monday's semifinals with red-hot shooting in an 83-63 win over Pikeville (KY) in Saturday's quarterfinals. The Blue Raiders tied a season-high hitting 15 3-pointers in the game -- making 65.2 percent from deep.

No. 3-ranked Campbellsville (17-1) punched its ticket to the semifinals with a 76-44 win over Bethel (TN) on Saturday. The Lady Tigers used another stellar defensive effort, forcing 21 turnovers resulting in 26 points, to surge past the Wildcats.



Lindsey Wilson and Campbellsville met just once this season -- a 78-58 setback for the Blue Raiders in Campbellsville. The scheduled game in Lindsey Wilson was postponed due to inclement weather.

Today's game features the MSC Player of the Year, MSC Freshman of the Year, four first-team all-conference selections, three second-teamers, and an honorable mention selection.

Reagan Turner -- the conference's player of the year -- enters the game averaging 22.7 points per game while Sydnie Hall -- the freshman of the year -- is coming off hitting seven 3-pointers in the conference tournament debut. Bree Glover (first team) and Hailey Ison (second team) also earned all-conference honors this season for the Blue Raiders.

Campbellsville's Samantha Rogers and Savannah Gregory lead the Lady Tigers. The first-team all-conference selections are averaging a combined 30.2 points and 9.8 rebounds per game this season. Lexy Lake and Courtney Pritchett joined Ison on the conference's second team.

Today marks the seventh all-time meeting between the two teams in the Mid-South Conference Tournament. Campbellsville leads the series 6-1. The two teams last met in the conference tournament in 2019, an 81-59 semifinal win for Campbellsville in Pikeville, Ky.

Tip-off is set for 2:30pmCT from Studle Financial Arena on the campus of Bowling Green High School.
