After Centenary cut a 17-point lead to eight points in the later stages of the third quarter, Schreiner took advantage of a pair of technicals and got the momentum back in the fourth quarter to pull away for a 78-55 win over the Ladies on Friday evening.
Schreiner led 16-11 after one quarter and 35-21 at halftime. Up just by eight points in the third quarter, Centenary’s Brianna Edwards picked up her fourth foul and then earned a technical foul on top of that and was done for the night. Minutes later, another technical — this time on the Centenary head coach — gave SU more free throws and allowed the team to get the lead back safely into double digits. Schreiner would not be threatened in the final period and pulled away.
Freshman Alina Hilliard came off the bench to score a team-high 14 points. Senior Cassandra Aleman added 12 points. Sophomore guard Jordyn Villa pulled down nine rebounds. Samantha Lyons scored 19 points to lead Centenary.
