SHERMAN, Texas – The Centenary women’s basketball team fell 90-49 at Austin College on Friday evening to close out the regular season. The Ladies (0-23, 0-14 SCAC) head into the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference as the eight seed to face top seeded Texas Lutheran on Friday, Feb. 28 at 2:30 p.m.

Briana Edwards led the Maroon and White with 18 points and 18 rebounds gathering her 10th double-double of the season. Rhonda Martin added 13 points for the Ladies with 10 coming from Rebecca Thompson.

Centenary shot 27 percent for the game and was 8 of 13 from the charity stripe.

Christina Kime and Kendall Heitmeir paced the Roos in scoring with 17 points each while Erin Riley chimed in 11 points to round out the double-digit producers. Riley along with Brittany Stepanski each grabbed six boards to lead AC.

The Roos connected on 50 percent of its shots from the floor and were 7 for 15 from behind the arc in the contest. The unit was also 13 for 16 from the free throw line.

After falling behind early in the contest, the Ladies rallied back to take a 16-15 lead with 12:08 left in the opening half behind a pair of Edwards’ free throws, but the advantage disappeared on the next Roos’ possession as Katie Gowdy’s layup nine seconds later placed AC back in front.
