COLUMBIA -- The Lady Cougar basketball team stayed unbeaten in league play with a 92-75 home victory Thursday night over American Midwest Conference (AMC) foe Missouri Baptist University. Columbia improves to 13-5 overall on the year and 6-0 in AMC action with the win, their ninth straight dating back to December 18th.

Trailing 11-10 midway through the first half, Tierney Seifert sparked a 14-2 Lady Cougar run with a three-pointer at the 12:48 mark. Columbia would hold the lead for the remainder of the period, taking a 43-35 advantage into the halftime break. Seifert knocked down all four of her attempts from three-point range on her way 14 points, helping the Lady Cougars shoot 53 percent from the field in the opening 20 minutes.

Columbia's hot shooting carried into the second half as they extended their lead to 16 with a 10-2 run coming out of the locker room to begin the second half. The Spartans would get no closer than 12 the rest of the way as the Lady Cougars hit 19 of 37 attempts over the final frame to finish at 52 percent (36 for 69) on the night.

Seifert connected on six of seven attempts from beyond the arc on the night, finishing with a career-high 24 points to go along with four assists. Sophomore Kayla Washington also set a new career-high with 15 points off the bench. Julie Teeple and Aqua Corpening added 12 points to round out the Columbia players in double figures. Teeple also pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds for her team-leading third double-double of the season.

Kristyne Smyth led the Lady Spartans with 16 points.

The Lady Cougars face a quick turnaround and will travel to take on league newcomer and 15th-ranked Lyon (Ark.) College on Saturday, January 19th. First place in the AMC will be on the line as both teams sit atop the conference standings at 6-0. Tip-off is set for 2:00 p.m. in Batesville, Arkansas.
