ST. LOUIS -- The Lady Cougar basketball team, ranked 24th in this week's NAIA Top 25 poll, earned a 65-53 road victory over Harris-Stowe State (Mo.) University on Thursday night in an American Midwest Conference (AMC) contest. Columbia improves to 15-5 overall and 8-0 in league play with the win, their 11th in a row dating back to December 18th.

The Lady Cougars led for much of the first period, but went into the locker room with the score tied at 28 after the Lady Hornets used a late run to close out the opening frame. Columbia shot 35 percent from the field in the half compared to 41 percent for Harris-Stowe.

A back and forth second half ensued following the halftime break, with the Lady Cougars eventually using an 11-2 run midway through to take the lead for good at 48-40. Columbia would stretch their lead out to 12 and hold off a brief run by the Lady Hornets down the stretch on their way to victory.

Senior Lily Abreu led three Lady Cougars in double figures with 14 points on the night. Columbia also received 13 points from Heather English and 12 points from Kayla Washington.

Shanique Buford finished with a game-high 17 points leading Harris-Stowe.

Columbia returns home to take on AMC foe No. 20 ranked William Woods (Mo.) University on Saturday, January 26th. Tip-off is set for 2:00 p.m. at the Arena of Southwell Complex. This weekend is Coaches vs. Cancer weekend across the country and basketball programs everywhere are raising money for the American Cancer Society. Join Columbia in the fight by wearing a suit and sneaker combination just the like the coaches will be and donate to the cause by purchasing various items on Saturday.
