SHREVEPORT, La. – Centenary posts four players in double figures scoring en route to a 61-57 victory over Colorado College on Friday evening at the Gold Dome.  The win snaps a six-game losing streak for the Ladies who improve to 4-13 on the season and 3-5 in SCAC action.

Rebecca Thompson, Dionecia Warr, Vashni Sharp-Moore each tallied 14 points in the game while Francesca Lawrence tallied a career-high 12 points, including a pair of 3-pointers to assist the Ladies’ run late in the second half.

Sharp-Moore picked up her 39th career game with double figures in the scoring column while Warr logged her 27th career game. Thompson garnered her fourth, career double-digit scoring effort.

The Ladies held a 55-51 rebound advantage over Colorado College en route to the victory led by Brianna Edwards’ team-best 11 boards. The advantage marked just the third time on the campaign that the Maroon and White outrebounded its opponent this season.

The double-digit rebounding effort marked the seventh of Edwards’ career and her ninth as the team’s leading rebounder.

Following a low scoring first half by both squads, the Ladies marched out to their largest lead of the game, 47-37, at the 9:48 mark of the second stanza on a 3-pointer by Sharp-Moore.

The Tigers (3-14, 3-4 SCAC) however posted a 10-0 run to pull even with the Ladies in the contest in a three-minute span. Katie Waters led CC during the span with 4 points, her only points of the game.

Centenary responded by regaining the lead on the first of Lawrence’s treys and reached its largest lead of the second 20 minutes on the second 3-pointer by the Metairie, La., junior.

Centenary returns to action on Saturday, Jan. 19 as the Ladies host Dallas. Tip is slated for 6 p.m.
