Published 12:00 am Thursday, January 25, 2007

SELMA &045; The Judson College Eagles probably thought the Concordia College Lady Hornets looked were wearing a form of propellant in their shoes last night. Concordia raced to a 15 point run in less than five minutes onto the game, before Judson could get its first points. The Lady Hornets ran away with an 80-67 win in a United States Collegiate Athletic Association contest.

The loss over shadows a 35-point performance, an unofficial school record, by junior Mia Allison. She knocked down six triples and scored 22 second half points.

The Eagles scored its first points of the game with 15:41 showing on the clock. They never got any closer than 11 points the rest of the first half. Concordia made good of Judson’s sluggish play and pushed its advantage by 20 points with two minutes to play in the half and closed with a 45-28 score going into the locker room.

Allison got Judson off to a quick start in the second half, hitting back-to-back shots. The Lady Hornet’s speed and quickness made its appearance once again and raced to a 57-39 lead with 14 minutes left to play.

The Eagles would make a run to get its deficit down to 12 points. Allison sank two consecutive three-pointers in the run. That only fired up Concordia again, as they ran off 11 unanswered points to grab its largest lead, 74-51and less than five minutes left in the game.

Allison also pulled down 11 rebounds to go with her 35 points. The lone senior on the team Anna Billingham chipped in 10 points for Judson. Santana Seay led Concordia with 33 points.
