Wounded Lady Pilots fall at OLLU

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. - The LSU Shreveport Lady Pilots were without their starting Point Guard, Meoshi Bradley, and Forward, Victoria Smith on Monday night in Red River Athletic Conference play as they suffered a 79-59 loss to the Our Lady of the Lake Saints, snapping their nine-game winning streak.

The Saints have only three games left in conference needing only one win to keep the Lady Pilots from getting a piece of the title.

Smith and Bradley are both waiting on MRI results to determine their fate for the rest of the season. The Saints took advantage of the depleted Lady Pilots building a 22- point half-time lead. The Lady Pilots shot 38-percent and only converted two of their 19 attempts from downtown.

OLLU (24-2, 17-2 RRAC) shot 37-percent on a night where they made eight three's while attempting an impressive 33. LSUS turned the ball over 24 times leading OLLU to 31 of their 79 points. LSUS placed three scorers in double figures with the reigning RRAC Player of the Week Sharde Henry leading the way with 13 points while Jenna Diakos netted 12 points and Brittany Maddox had 11. Christy Willis drained one of the two LSUS' threes as she finished with eight points.

OLLU out rebounded the Lady Pilots 46-39 while also having just three in double figures with Nashae Owens leading all scorers with 16 points.

The next game for the Lady Pilots will be this Saturday at The Dock at 5:30 p.m. as they take on the Southwest Lady Mustangs.
