QUINCY, IL -- Jackeya Mitchell and Arriana Walker each scored 17 points and Dahlia Booker chipped in 16 as the Lincoln women's basketball team defeated Hannibal-LaGrange, 79-76, on Saturday afternoon. The win allowed Lincoln to improve to 2-1 on the season and win the Quincy Subway Tip-Off Classic, as LU was the only one of the four teams present to go 2-0 at the tournament.

The Lady Trojans (2-2) played Lincoln tough all day, even taking a 46-42 lead into halftime, but with 8:03 remaining and the Blue Tigers down, 62-61, Alicia Johnson hit a layup that gave LU the lead for the rest of the game. The Lady Trojans closed the gap to one with 5:24 to play, but that was as close as HLGU would come as Freddie Sims connected on a three-point shot that began a 12-6 run that kept Lincoln in control of the game.

The game was a tightly-played affair, as the rebounds were even at 35 for both sides and HLGU held a slight edge in field goal percentage, 50.0 (32-64) to 48.5 (33-68). The game was eventually decided in the closing seconds, as a potential tying three-pointer by the Lady Trojans fell incomplete to preserve the Lincoln victory. Lincoln came up big defensively when it needed to, though, as LU won the turnover battle, committing 11 while forcing 15, and the Blue Tigers had 11 steals to just six for Hannibal-LaGrange.

For the second time in three games, Walker had a big day doling out assists, as she finished with a team-high seven. In LU's opener, Walker set an MIAA single game high through the young season with nine assists. Walker also pulled down five boards and led LU with four steals as Lincoln won its second game in a row following Friday night's (Nov. 16) 75-62 victory over tournament host Quincy.

Mitchell added two rebounds, a pair of steals and an assist while Booker led the Blue Tigers with eight rebounds while contributing three assists, a block and a steal. Johnson tallied two blocks and a steal while scoring six and grabbing six boards while Sims finished with 13 points, three assists, two boards and a steal.

Nesha Wright and Andrea Rhoiney each pulled down two rebounds, with Wright also adding four points and a block. Courtney Coulter played her first significant minutes of the season, scoring six points with three rebounds and a pair of steals as LU won its first neutral site contest of the season.

The Blue Tigers have another classic on deck, as Lincoln will return home to host the LU Thanksgiving Classic next weekend (Nov. 23-24). Jason Gym will play host to four games in two days, starting with Truman State playing Missouri Western on Friday at 5:00 p.m. CST before Lincoln takes on Harris Stowe State that evening at 7:00 p.m. CST. On Saturday, Truman will take on Harris Stowe at 2:00 p.m. CST and Lincoln will play Missouri Western at 4:00 p.m. CST. Although the classic features three MIAA teams, neither of two meetings between league opponents will count in the conference standings.
