CLINTON, Miss. – Despite career-highs from freshmen DeiAnna Hall and Haley Deshautelle, the Centenary women’s basketball team dropped an 86-66 decision on Saturday afternoon to LaGrange College in the final contest of the Zaxby’s Charity Tip-Off Tournament.

LC moves to 2-1 on the season while the Maroon and White stand at 0-4.

Deshautelle led the way for the Ladies with 18 points off the bench – her first contest in double figures. Hall added 13 points for the Maroon and White – marking her third outing in double-digits this season. Sophomore Briana Edwards paced Centenary on the glass with nine rebounds along with six points. It marked the first time this season Edwards wasn’t in double figures scoring.

The Ladies were held to just 29.4-percent from the floor for the contest and 63.6-percent from the charity stripe. LaGrange connected on nearly 55-percent of its shots from the field, including 9-for-18 from behind the arc and 65-percent from the free throw line.

Alex Wilson paced four Panthers in double-digits with 20 points. Falinjia Butler added 16 points with Caroline Brashier and Madison Barker each providing 13 points.  Butler and Abbey Martin tied for the team lead in rebounds with eight apiece.

LC, which led by as many as 18 points in the opening half, grabbed its largest lead of the game, 59-37, at the 10:42 mark of the contest following a trey by Wilson, one of her team-leading four on the afternoon. The Ladies nipped the deficit to as few as 13 points with 5:25 remaining behind an 18-9 run, but couldn’t overcome the Panthers advantage.

Centenary returns to action on Saturday, Nov. 30 as the Ladies travel to Clinton, Miss., for a non-conference contest against Mississippi College. Tip is slated for 1 p.m.
