Trinity Breaks Two-Game Slide Tuesday Night

 

San Antonio - The Tiger women's basketball team broke its two-game losing streak with a 74-46 win over the University of Dallas on Tuesday night.

Trinity (14-6) led 31-24 at the half, as both teams shot better than 40% in the first period.  The Tigers shot even better in the second half, but Dallas cooled off considerably, hitting just over 28% from the field, and connecting on just nine field goals.

After Dallas opened the game on an 8-0 run, Trinity was able to climb back into the game a few minutes later.  Trailing by five with nearly eight minutes into the game, the Tigers went on a 16-0 run that changed the game for good.

Dallas did cut the lead to six with less than three minutes left in the half, but would get no closer the rest of the game.  The teams traded baskets early in the second, then Trinity went on a 13-2 run that made it 46-28 and put the home team in full control less than five minutes into the half.

Lindsay Hovland, starting for just the third time this season, had a solid double-double to lead the Tigers to victory.  Hovland scored 11 points and grabbed a career-best 15 rebounds, as well as setting a new career-high with five blocked shots.

Ali Marzella finished with a team-leading 17 points, while Lauren Hickey added a career-high 15 points to go with three assists and three steals.  Danielle Hubenak scored 12 points and dished out five assists.

Landes Randall came off the bench with six points and a career-best 11 rebounds, while Alexandra Blake chipped in with seven points and seven boards.

Cara Sczepanski led Dallas with a game-high 19 points, hitting 8-16 from the field.  She also had eight rebounds and a pair of steals.

Trinity will continue Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play this weekend, hosting Southwestern University on Saturday night.
