SHREVEPORT, La. – The Ladies kept pace with the Tigers in the first half and tied the game in the third quarter, but the Maroon and White fell behind as much as 18 points in the fourth as Centenary (4-14, 2-6 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) lost to #16 Trinity (14-2, 7-0 SCAC) 64-55 Friday night, January 26.

Micah Weaver responded with a pair from the line and a layup to give the visitors a 26-24 lead into the break.
