Lady Pilots fall four points short of 14 straight wins
The LSU Shreveport Lady Pilots’ historic winning streak ended at 13 games Wednesday, Feb. 1 at The Dock. The LSU Alexandria Generals squeaked by the Lady Pilots by a score of 91-87.
The Lady Pilots remained on their heels for the first two quarters of play, having been outscored 52-38. A third period offensive surge gave the Lady Pilots life, namely by the efforts of LSUS Seniors Kourtney Pennywell and Courtney Randle. Pennywell and Randle combined for 45 points and 16 rebounds through four periods of play.
The LSUA Generals capitalized on The Lady Pilots’ missed three-point opportunities, sinking nine of 13 attempts. The Lady Pilots went one of 13 at the three-point line, creating a 24-point differential in that one category alone.
The next contest for the Lady Pilots will be at The Dock Saturday, Feb. 4 at 5:30 p.m. to host the Paul Quinn College Lady Tigers. Pink will be the prominent color of LSUS’ uniforms to raise awareness of breast cancer. Proceeds from the game will be donated to the Kay Vow Cancer Fund, a non-profit charity organization dedicated to the memory of longtime North Carolina State University women’s basketball coach Kay Vow. Vow passed away in 2009 at the age of 66 after a battle with stage four breast cancer.
