PARKVILLE, MO -- Behind a record-breaking performance from Tierney Seifert, the Lady Cougar basketball team defeated American Midwest Conference opponent Park University on Saturday afternoon by a score of 99-70. Columbia, ranked 18th in this week's NAIA Top 25 poll, improves to 18-5 overall and 11-0 in league play with the win, their 14th straight dating back to December 18th. The loss drops the Lady Pirates to 7-13 and 4-7 in conference action.

The Lady Cougars took control of the first half from the opening tip, jumping out to a 9-2 lead less than three minutes into the contest. Columbia continued to extend its lead from there, hitting at a 62 percent clip from the field in the first period to take a 55-29 advantage at the halftime break. The Lady Cougars also connected on six of 12 attempts from behind the three-point line, including four from Seifert, who led Columbia with 14 points at the break.

Park never threatened over the final 20 minutes as the Lady Cougars led by as much as 39 on their way to the blowout victory. Columbia finished 32 of 55 from the field for the game for a season high 58 percent from the field. The Lady Cougars also shot a season high 55 percent from beyond the arc.

Seifert led four Lady Cougar players in double figures with a career-high 28 points and a school-record eight three-pointers, breaking the previous record of seven held by Ashley Fisher and B.J. Homer. Lily Abreu added 19 for Columbia to go along with 12 and 10 points from Julie Teeple and Brooke Godsey, respectively.

Brianna Beridon led the Lady Pirates with 27 points.

The Lady Cougars return to the court on Thursday, February 7th when they travel to take on the Lady Bulldogs of Benedictine University of Springfield. Columbia defeated the Lady Bulldogs 99-40 in the two teams' first meeting of the season on January 10th. Tip-off is set for 5:30 p.m. in Springfield, Ill.
