Hodges Nets Career-High in Final Game as Women's Basketball Falls at LMU
HARROGATE, Tenn. -- Catawba saw its women’s basketball season come to an end with a 76-67 loss to host Lincoln Memorial in the first round of the South Atlantic Conference Tournament on Wednesday night. The Railsplitters, seeded fourth, improve to 18-10. The fifth-seeded Catawba Indians, who lost a tiebreaker with LMU, end their season at 14-14.
A short-handed Lady Indians squad stayed close until the final minute. Shea Coker’s jumper with 52 seconds left put LMU on top 72-66 and the Railsplitters hit on 4-of-6 at the line over the final 24 seconds to secure the win.
Catawba never led but had tied the game twice in the final quarter, the last time at 61-all with 5:58 to play. Two free throws by Serena Brown had the Lady Indians down 65-64 with 3:36 remaining, but LMU eased out by six with just over a minute to play.
Brianna Hodges led Catawba with a career-high 18 points in her final collegiate game. She hit on 7-of-13 shots. Brown, also a senior, scored 16 points with six rebounds and five assists.
Coker led LMU with 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Dasia Maxwell tallied 14 points along with Jordan Brightwell, who finished off a double-double with 10 rebounds. Emily Griffith scored 10 points and Cameryn DuBose had a dozen rebounds.
LMU shot 46% in the first half to lead 40-34 at the break. The Railsplitters dominated the boards with a 57-29 margin. Lincoln Memorial had 20 offensive rebounds and turned that into 13 points.
