SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Despite edging Trinity in scoring in the second half, the Centenary women’s basketball team fell 75-62 on Sunday afternoon. The Ladies fall to 5-16 on the season and 4-8 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference action. The Tigers remain unblemished in the conference play at 11-0 and improve to 17-4 on the campaign.

Vashni Sharp-Moore led the squad with 17 points marking her 17th straight contest in double figures and 19th this season. Emmeline Richard came off the bench with 13 points – her third contest outing in double digits - with 10 coming from Dio Warr – her 19th of the season. Warr also tied Briana Edwards with a team-leading eight rebounds.

TU opened the contest with a 13-3 run to take a double digit lead a little more than five minutes into the contest. The Maroon and White nipped the deficit back to 13-7 at the 12:35 mark on a Richard layup. The six-point deficit would be as close as the Ladies would get as Trinity pushed the lead back out to double digits to stay with 4:33 remaining in the opening 20 minutes on an Anecia Richardson layup. Richard scored a game-best 20 points in the win.

An 8-0 to start the second half pushed the Black and Orange’s lead out to its largest of the game at 22 points and the Tigers never looked back. The Ladies cut the margin down as few as 10 points on a pair of Sharp-Moore free throws, but the deficit wasn’t to be overcome.

Libby Kruse partnered 12 points with a team-best 11 rebounds for a double-double in the effort. Hannah Coley finished with 11 points off the bench.

Centenary finished the night shooting just under 32 percent from the floor and connecting on 60 percent of its shots at the free throw line. Trinity shot 38 percent on the afternoon, including 33 percent from behind the arc. The Tigers also connected on 76 percent of its shots from the charity stripe.

Centenary returns to action on Friday, Feb. 8 as the Ladies open the first of two games at Colorado College. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
