COLUMBIA -- The 15th-ranked Lady Cougar basketball team fell to visiting Lyon (Ark.) College 73-69 in overtime on Saturday afternoon in a battle of the top two teams in the American Midwest Conference. Columbia drops to 22-6 overall on the year and 15-1 in conference play with their first loss in 19 games. The Lady Scots, ranked 20th in the NAIA, improve to 25-3 overall and move into a first place tie with the Lady Cougars in the league standings at 15-1.

Despite 17 first half turnovers, Lyon was able to take a 32-30 lead at the halftime break after a competitive first period. Both teams shot over 50 percent from the field in the opening frame, while the Lady Scots owned a 14-11 advantage on the glass. Senior Julie Teeple had 10 points in the half to lead Columbia.

A tightly contested second half ensued following the halftime break with Lyon grabbing their biggest largest lead of the contest, 43-36, at the 13:34 mark. The Lady Cougars would claw their way back and regain the lead at 50-49 after a Lily Abreu layup with 5:51 remaining in regulation. After the Lady Scots tied the score at 50, both teams would trade baskets over the next three minutes with Lyon taking a 61-58 advantage on a Suzanne Fincham three-point play with 1:34 to play. Teeple would connect on a three with under a minute remaining to tie score at 61 and neither team would score over the remainder of the half, sending the game into overtime.

The Lady Scots pulled ahead 66-63 to start the extra period, but four straight points by Columbia gave the host squad a 67-66 lead with 2:12 to go in the extra frame. Lyon would respond with five straight points over the next two minutes and put the game away at the free throw line down the stretch to hold off the Lady Cougars. The Lady Scots finished the game at 46 percent from the floor, compared to 43 percent for Columbia. Both teams were solid from the foul line at over 80 percent, while Lyon outrebounded the Lady Cougars 38-27 on the day.

Junior Heather English led four Columbia players in double figures with 16 points on the afternoon. The Lady Cougars received 15 points from Teeple and 12 from Abreu and Aqua Corpening.

Whitney Keith finished with 16 points to lead the Lady Scots.

Columbia returns to action on Thursday, February 21st when they host Harris-Stowe State (Mo.) University in their final home game of the regular season. The Lady Cougars earned a 65-53 victory in the two teams' first meeting of the year on January 24th. Tip-off is set for 5:30 p.m. at the Arena of Southwell Complex. Abreu, Teeple, and fellow senior Kaitlin Allphin will be recognized prior to game time as part of Senior Night.
