Lady Pilots Roll Past Paul Quinn
December 14, 2013
SHREVEPORT, La. - The LSU Shreveport Lady Pilots had no trouble coming away from The Dock on Saturday evening with an 86-49 lopsided victory over the visiting Paul Quinn Lady Tigers.
"I thought we shot the ball a little better tonight. I would like to see us start a little faster but overall we did a pretty good job," said LSUS head coach Ronnie Howell.
Shanovia Gamblin made a free-throw to complete a three-point play to put the Lady Pilots up for good with 14:50 to play in the first half as the LSUS offense got clicking to lead 40-19 at the half. Gamblin finished with a dozen points while the Lady Pilots placed five shooters in double figures including Gamblin.
Jenna Diakos led the scoring tandem for LSUS with 16 points while Kiara Taylor had 15. Dionecia Warr and Ariel Harrell provided some quality minutes off the bench with Warr tossing in 10 and Harrell 11 as the LSUS bench poured in 30 of the Lady Pilots points while the visitors reserves scored only 12 points.
Paul Quinn's struggling offense provided for many rebound opportunities as LSUS claimed 46 while the visitors grabbed 39. Victoria Smith led all rebounders with 10 boards. Dominique Mitchell led PQC with 16 points. The Tigers shot a slim 26-percent in the contest as the LSUS defense did not give them many good looks at the bucket and they forced 18 turnovers.
The Lady Pilots will hit the road for four straight games before the end of December. They will play a pair of games at Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas. The first contest will be on December 17 at 5:30 p.m. against Lyon College and then again at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 18 against Shawnee State University.
