Lady Statesmen drop two at Roane State
JOSH BROWN
Sports Editor

Putting the ball in the basket was a struggle for Lincoln Trail College's women's basketball team this week.

The Lady Statesmen put up the same amount of points in each of their two games at the Roane State Classic in Tennessee, but came away with a pair of lopsided losses.

On Wednesday, Lincoln Trail lost to the host team, Roane State, 76-45. On Thursday, the Lady Statesmen lost to Walters State, 70-45.

The Lady Statesmen were within striking distance after a low-scoring first half, 26-15, but then were outscored in the second half, 50-30.

Lincoln Trail struggled at the free throw line, making just 14-25 foul shots (56 percent), while Roane State made 10-13 free throws (77 percent). Roane State also did a lot of damage from long range, as 10 of their 28 field goals were three-pointers, while Lincoln Trail made just one three-point basket in the game.

Beth Mahurin led LTC with 18 points, while Keaira Pennie scored nine. Tiesha Hampton netted six points, Jada Grady tossed in five, Kearra Holt added four points, Blayr Poston had two and Taylor Birchfield had one.

Ashley Cox, Nicole Hassler and Mikayla Bennett shared scoring honors for Roane State with 12 points apiece.

Against Walters State, the Lady Statesmen dug themselves a first-half deficit they could not climb out of. Lincoln Trail fell behind 37-16 at halftime and even though they picked things up a bit in the second half, were still outscored 33-29 over the final 20 minutes on their way to their second loss in as many days.

Turnovers and rebounding were costly for the Lady Statesmen, as they committed 22 miscues and were outrebounded 47-30. Walters State scored 27 points off LTC turnovers and had 12 second-chance points off of offensive rebounds.

Jada Grady led LTC with 12 points, five assists, one rebound and one steal, while Blayr Poston totaled 10 points, two rebounds, two steals, one assist and one blocked shot. Keaira Pennie posted nine points, four rebounds and one assist, Ted'Ra Taborn contributed six points and three rebounds, Beth Mahurin netted four points and three rebounds, Jazmyn Hardiman contributed two points, four rebounds and one assist and Kearra Holt added two points, two rebounds and one assist.

Arjae Saunders led Walters State with 18 points, eight rebounds, two steals and one assist, while Jephany Brown posted 11 points, seven rebounds, two steals and one blocked shot and Donnesha Shuler-Brown netted 11 points, three assists, three steals and one rebound.

Lincoln Trail (4-6) will play host to Shawnee Community College Wednesday, Jan. 8, at 5:30 p.m.
