SHREVEPORT, La. – The Centenary men’s and women’s basketball teams return to the hardwood this weekend as the squads host Colorado College on Friday, Jan. 18 and follow with a doubleheader against the University of Dallas on Saturday, Jan. 19. The Ladies will tip at 6 p.m. with the Gents opening at 8 p.m. both evenings.

Friday’s outing marks the first meeting this season for either Centenary squad against Colorado College. The contests on Saturday mark the third meetings between the Maroon and White and Dallas this season. The Ladies have a pair of wins over Dallas already on the campaign – both coming away from the Gold Dome – while the Gents fell in both outings to the Crusaders.

The Ladies enter the weekend looking to snap a six-game skid. The Maroon and White have had a pair of close calls in the last two outings playing with single digits of Trinity (87-81) and Louisiana College (79-71). In the loss to Trinity Vashni Sharp-Moore posted a triple-double with 28 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists – all team-highs in the contest, while Dionecia Warr added a double-double of her own in the contest. Against Louisiana College, the Ladies held the Lady Wildcats to one of its lowest shooting percentages from the floor and all season at 30.5 percent, but fell short of a victory.

Sharp-Moore continues to pace the squad with 20.3 points with Warr averaging 17.4 points per game. The duo also ranks in the top three in rebounds with Sharp-Moore posting 7.3 and Warr with 7.1 boards per contest. Briana Edwards leads the squad on the glass with 8.7 a contest.

The Gents have claimed two of their last three outings, but fell in the last outcome 67-60 to Trinity at the Gold Dome last Saturday. Centenary edged Austin College on Jan. 5 with a 59-56 outcome and followed with a 10-point victory on Jan. 11 against Southwestern. Jonathan Blount and Drew Erskine played major roles in the last two outings. The duo tied for the team lead with 15 points each in the setback to Trinity while Blount posted a team-best 21 points in the win over the SU and Erskine added 16 points.

Blount leads the way for the Gents in the scoring column averaging 22.8 points. Brett Bell proves the leader on the glass with 7.9 boards per game even though Caden Cheramie has grabbed a total of 17 rebounds in the last two outings – both team-bests.

CC’s women enter having split a pair of contests with Dallas last weekend, including a 62-59 loss in the second outing. Kalli Kemling leads the squad with 12.2 points per game while Courtney Tyus is averaging 10.6 points. Sarah Gunkel paces the Tigers on the glass with 7.4 rebounds.

A duo of double-digit scoring Tigers guide Colorado College into the Gold Dome on Friday as Chris Lesnansky leads the way with 16 points per game. Ryan Milne is averaging 12.8 points for the Black and Gold. The Tigers have won four of their last five outings with the lone interruption coming in a 68-64, overtime loss at Dallas on Jan. 11.

The Dallas women snapped a seven-game losing streak on Jan. 12 with a 62-59 victory over Colorado College. A trio leads the Blue and White with double figures scoring with Christy Allen pacing the cause with 12.4 points per game. Kylie Yoshimura sits second on the squad with 11.9 while Brooke Hagemann rounds out the threesome with 10.4 points per game.

The Crusaders have split their last four contests, including a split with Colorado College. The Blue and White dropped their last outing, an 80-72 loss at Schreiner on Jan. 15. Tanner Bruffey leads a pair of double digit scorers for Dallas with 15.7 points per game while Ross Davidson is averaging with 13.9 points.

Following this weekend’s action, Centenary takes to the road for a five-game, road swing before closing out the regular season on Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Gold Dome against Austin College.
