JBU Lose Close One at SGU

Siloam Springs, Ark. (February 23, 2002) — The Golden Eagles women’s team were able to pull ahead by a single point with under a minute to play, but couldn’t hold on as they lose 66-62 to the Lady Cavaliers.

JBU trailed by 4 at intermission 35-39. Katie Elliot scored and was fouled with a minute left to play to put JBU ahead 62-61, but SGU answered with a 3-pointer of their own and a bucket at the buzzer to stop the JBU rally. Elliot led the Golden Eagles with 14 points and 6 rebounds. Lara Keeling and LaTosha Wilson also reached double digits with 10 points each. JBU falls to 12-17 on the season and 6-14 in SAC play.

JBU will take on Northwestern Oklahoma State University in first round play of the SAC tournament on Thursday.
