SHREVEPORT, La. – It is a winning streak 35 years in the making.

The Ladies won its fourth-straight game – all by double digits – for the first time in 35 years, and finished the home Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference schedule with a winning record (4-3) as Centenary (8-14, 5-6 SCAC) beat Colorado College (7-15, 4-7 SCAC) 67-55 Saturday night, February 3.

Trailing by as much as nine in the first quarter and eight after one, the Ladies rallied to take a halftime lead. Down 20-13, Sophomore Deunya Small made a layup and junior Savanah Doty hit a triple. Small hit a jumper to square the game at 20. Tied later at 28, the Ladies made 3-of-4 from the line and junior Jasmine Morris made a layup as the Ladies took a 33-30 lead into intermission.

Doty finished the game 4-for-8 from three-point range and added a basket for a game best 14 points.

Centenary led 38-34 before 11 unanswered pushed the lead to double digits. Freshman Haylee Washington hit a pair from the line while Morris completed a three-point play. Morris and King made layups before a freshman Bre Frierson inside shot put Centenary up 49-34 with 4:46 left.

Colorado College cut the lead to 51-48 in the fourth, but Centenary scored 14 unanswered to push the lead to double digits for good. Doty sandwiched threes around a King layup, followed by inside shots by Morris and Doty. Frierson capped the spurt with a jumper in the paint.

Morris added 13 points while Frierson came off the bench for 11. King finished with 10 boards.
