Lady Pilots crush Texas College

SHREVEPORT, La. - The LSU Shreveport Lady Pilots had four scorers finish Thursday's 94-67 thrashing of the Texas College Steers at The Dock in Red River Athletic Conference play.

Sharde Henry led the Lady Pilots as she recorded her fifth double-double of the season with the game-high of 26 points and tied with her teammate Brittany Maddox for the game's leading 10 rebounds as she finished with seven points. Henry finished two assists shy of a triple-double as she had eight while Christy Willis knocked down a pair of three-pointers leading her to 21 points while Jenna Diakos had 16 points and seven boards and Katie McCoy had a dozen points.

LSUS (18-3, 13-2 RRAC) eased their way to their eighth straight win with 50-percent shooting and out rebounded the visitors controlling the glass 53-31.

Ariel Harrell made her presence known pulling down eight rebounds off the bench, the second most of any LSUS' player. Jessica Carper pulled down six rebounds while each contributed five points.

Texas College (5-19, 4-14 RRAC) could not get much going against the Lady Pilots defense as they were forced to take bad shots converting on only 35-percent while turning the ball over 18 times as LSUS converted into 28 points.

The Lady Pilots will hit the road for a pair of games this weekend beginning in Austin, Texas, on Saturday night at Huston-Tillotson University and the visiting Our Lady of the Lake University on Monday night in Austin, Texas. Both games are scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.

Pilots rope Steers in OT

SHREVEPORT, La. - The no. 21 LSU Shreveport Pilots surged past the Texas College Steers outscoring them in the overtime period 15-7 for a 105-97 win in Red River Athletic Conference play on Thursday night at The Dock. Brandon Davis had a banner night for the Pilots with a triple-double.

Davis, who collected the first triple-double of the season for the Pilots netted 28 points and dished out the game-high of 10 assists while controlling the defensive boards pulling down 14 of his 15 total rebounds in 43 minutes of action.

Rodney Milum led all scorers pouring in 24 of his 36 points after the break. Milum was drained 10 from beyond the arc and was a perfect six-for-six from the charity stripe as he helped the Pilot's bench who outscored the visitors' bench 55-31.

Tevin Hall added 19 points to the benches' total for the Pilots with seven of nine shooting while starter Mark Politte added 14. Rydell Harris fouled out but made his presence felt in his 35 minutes of action with five points and was the only other Pilots to finish with double-digit rebounds with 10.

LSUS (17-4, 12-3 RRAC) blazed the nets for 5-percent shooting in the first half for a five-point lead at the break, 44-39. The Pilots finished the game at 49-percent from the field in a game where the score was tied 16 times and the lead changed sides 17 times.

The largest the lead ever got for the visitors was by four points just four minutes into the contest while the Pilots supported a lead as large as 11 points at the beginning of the second half which slowly deteriorated as the Steers chipped away to tie the game to send it into overtime.

The Pilots had a chance to win the game in regulation but Davis' three-point attempt came up short to send the game into the extra period.

Texas College (18-7, 12-6 RRAC) impressively placed seven shooters in double-figures with Kerry Jones leading the visitors with a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds while Jamal Robertson also added 19 points. The rest of the double figure shooters Brandon Lee, Eddren McCain, Titus Stevenson, Hakeem Poles, and Sherrod Phillips all had 10 points.

LSUS will hit the road for their next two games with the first coming Saturday in Austin, Texas, against Huston-Tillotson and the back end of the road trip will be on Monday at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas. Both games will begin after the women's game at 7:30 p.m.
