Brettes trample LOC

Published 9:42 am Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Give a team a 20-point lead at halftime and you just might see it relax in the second half.

Not so with Kentucky States womens basketball team. The Thorobrettes outscored LeMoyne-Owen by 20 points in each half, winning 91-51 Monday at the Exum Center.

I thought we actually played better in the second half, KSU coach Serena King-Coleman said. I thought we lacked a little bit defensively in the first half.

We shot the ball about the same in both halves, but our overall intensity was better in the second half.

KSU, 8-9 overall and 5-5 in the SIAC, never trailed in the game.

K-States Jasmine Davis hit a 3-pointer just 18 seconds into the game and by the midway point of the first half the Thorobrettes had doubled the score on LOC, leading 20-10 with 10:26 left before halftime.

The lead hit 20 points with 2:25 remaining before halftime, and K-State didnt let up the rest of the way.

That was our goal for this game, King-Coleman said, to keep that intensity for the whole game, to have a killer instinct and finish well.

We had six players in double figures, and we had 17 assists. It was a total team effort.

Sharnita Lloyd led KSU with 16 points. Shayla Moore and LaShell West both had 12, Davis and Style Harper each scored 11, and Brielle Newton finished with 10.

The Thorobrettes shot 43 percent for the game and went 9 for 17 from 3-point range. Davis was 3 for 4 from beyond the arc, and Ikiah Palmer and Lloyd both hit two 3-pointers.

KSU dominated the glass, outrebounding the Lady Magicians 57-32. Moore led all players with 13 rebounds, and West had eight.

Taylor Sanders had four assists and four steals for KSU, and Moore and Palmer each handed out three assists.

LeMoyne-Owens Ashley Attaway led all players with 22 points. LOC (2-17, 0-9) shot 36.8 percent from the field.

Defensively you dont want anyone to have double figures, King-Coleman said. I thought they played well with what they had.

The Lady Magicians had a short bench and used just seven players Monday.

By contrast King-Coleman was able to substitute five players at a time.

We were able to split minutes, she said. Everyone was able to play and get some experience. Hopefully that builds confidence that will continue to help us down the road.

KSU plays its next game Thursday at Lane College.

LEMOYNE-OWEN (51) Tyann Riggins 13, Nicole Swick 3, Laurien Williamson 7, Teneshia Jones 6, Ashley Attaway 22.

KENTUCKY STATE (91) Kristi Malohi 6, Jasmine Davis 11, Ikiah Palmer 7, Taylor Jones 5, Style Harper 11, Taylor Sanders 1, Sharnita Lloyd 16, Shayla Moore 12, LaShell West 12, Brielle Newton 10.
