IRVING, Texas – The Ladies trailed by only four after one quarter, but an 0-for-10 mark from the field saw Centenary (6-16, 2-9 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) trail by 19 at the half as Dallas (10-12, 2-9 SCAC) picked up a 66-50 win Sunday afternoon, February 5.

Down 15-5 with 3:23 left in the first, the Ladies scored six straight to end the quarter. Junior Peyton Hurst hit a jumper, while freshman Deunya Small made a jumper and layup to bring the Ladies within four after one quarter.

Small contributed the double-double with 12 points and 11 boards, while Hurst scored nine points and added a career best 10 boards in the game.

Down 42-25 in the opening minutes of the second half, Centenary went on an 8-0 run to cut the deficit under 20. Senior DeiAnna Hall made a pair of free throws and a fastbreak jumper off of senior Linda Gomez Gil’s steal. Hurst and sophomore Jasmine Morris both made layups to cut into the deficit.

In the fourth, Centenary cut the deficit to 12, but could not climb any closer. Down 17, Morris made a layup. Dallas split in two trips to the line while Small hit a jumper and sophomore Savanah Doty made a three.

The Ladies could not overcome a slow start to the first half, only shooting 5-for-26 (19.2 percent) in the half and 18-for-64 (28.1 percent) for the game. Morris finished the game with 16 points.

Up four after one quarter, Dallas scored the first 12 points of the second and outscored Centenary 17-2 to take a double-digit lead for good. Both teams could not make a field goal for the first four minutes of the quarter, but the Crusaders made 3-of-4 foul shots to extend the lead to seven. Helen Onyenso hit a jumper and split from the line to push the lead to 10.

With a 21-11 lead with 5:26 left until the half, Holly Tonry and Onyenso hit jumpers, while Seana Stoia made a layup. Morris made a pair from the line for the lone Ladies’ points in the quarter, but Tonry made a layup and split from the line, coupled with an Onyenso layup, put Dallas up 32-13 at the intermission.

Michelle DeCoud led Dallas with 17 points and 16 rebounds for the game, while Tonry added 15 points and eight assists. Onyenso came off the bench for 10 points, eight of which came in the fourth quarter.
