Shawnee State women’s basketball kept their perfect Mid-South Conference record on Sunday night, defeating Life University 112-51.
It was all Bears even before the tipoff as Bailey Cummins hit one out of two free throws after Life were given an administrative technical foul. The Bears would lead for all 40 minutes, and would lead by double digits after the 4:40 mark in the first quarter. The second half would be more of the same as Shawnee State started the third quarter on a 14-0 run to effectively end the game.
Jonessa Moore would have an explosive third quarter to end the game with 22 points and seven rebounds. Bailey Cummins had 18 points and five assists while shooting four for five from the three-point line. Jen Arnzen added 17 points and nine rebounds, Hannah Miller had 14, Carson Roney a career-high 13, and Madison Ridout added 11. Shawnee State shot 57.6% from the field, including 47.8% from three.
Damiya Montgomery was the only Life player with double figure points, scoring 13.
With the win, Shawnee State move to 18-1 on the season and keep a perfect Mid-South Conference record at 4-0. Life fall to 3-15 and are 0-5 in the league.
Shawnee State begin a tough three game stretch next Saturday when they travel to Kentucky to take on #7 Campbellsville. Tipoff is scheduled for 2:00pm.
