ASU Mid-South 1-1 last week as long road game stretch continues From ASU Mid-South
In the middle of a long five-game road trip to start the 2020 portion of their schedule, four Lady Greyhounds scored in double figures as ASU Mid-South picked up their first win of the new year last Monday night with a 75-56 victory at UA Cossatot in Lockesburg, Arkansas.
The Lady Greyhounds (5-9) jumped out to a 35-25 lead at the half and then coasted the rest of the way behind 46.8% shooting and controlling the boards by a 51-24 advantage. They also helped themselves with an outstanding effort from the free throw line, hitting 13-of-14 (92.9%), and limiting the Lady Colts to 34.4% shooting from the field.
Aaliyah Lee led the charge with her fifth double-double of the season, scoring 14 points and pulling down 12 rebounds.
Adrianne Chambers led the scoring assault with 17 points to go with 7 boards, and Ashley Pegue and Alindavia Lockett scored 16 points each while Lockett also collected 9 rebounds.
Tyler Hitchcock dished out a game-high 7 assists.
The Lady Greyhounds next traveled to National Park College on Saturday in the first game of a double-header with the men.
In that contest, the Lady Greyhounds rallied in the fourth quarter only to fall 65-61 at National Park College Saturday in Hot Springs.
After holding an 11-8 lead after the first quarter, ASU Mid-South found themselves down 30-25 at the half and 53-40 entering the fourth quarter. But tough defense, free throws from attacking the basket and a key three-pointer cut the Lady Nighthawk lead to 64-61 and the ball belonging to ASU Mid-South with 42.6 seconds remaining.
The Lady Greyhounds then missed a shot but immediately got a turnover and another chance to tie or narrow the lead with 24.3 seconds left. But the Lady Greyhounds couldn’t convert and were forced to foul, and National Park hit one of two free throws for the final margin.
ASU Mid-South won the battle of the boards, 50-46, but shot only 32.9% from the field and 22.2% from the three-point line. They also turned the ball over 19 times to only 15 for the Lady Nighthawks.
The Lady Greyhounds just missed having three players finish with double-doubles as Aaliyah Lee scored a game-high 19 points and pulled down 11 rebounds, Adrianne Chambers scored 16 points to go with 12 boards, and Alindavia Lockett scored 11 points and finished with 9 rebounds. Both Chambers and Jaquita Caldwell dished out 6 assists each.
The long road trip finishes up Wednesday against Three Rivers College in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. The next home game is Saturday, Jan. 18, as both the men and women host Region 2 opponent Southern Arkansas University Tech at the Dog House.
