FAYETTE, MO - No. 13-ranked Benedictine (Kan.) held off Central Methodist for a 62-56 win in Saturday's Heart of America Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Game of the Week.

The Ravens (24-4, 14-2 HAAC) jumped out to a seven-point lead in Puckett Fieldhouse before Raylyn Nuss and Nakia Robinson drilled back-to-back threes for the Eagles (21-6, 10-6 HAAC) as part of an 8-0 run. Robinson ripped the ball from Benedictine's Justice Payne on the next trip down the court, leading to a Jasmine Poteete fastbreak bucket to give the Eagles their first lead on Saturday, 15-14, midway through the half.

The Eagles had seven steals in the first 10 minutes and 10 in the first period. The two teams traded the lead three times over the next six minutes before Central Methodist's Sammie Gathercole tied the game at 25-all on a trey with 3:45 to play. Erin Murphy converted a conventional three-point play to put the visitors up 28-25 with one minute on the clock, but Gathercole found the bottom of the net in transition to cut the Eagles' deficit to one point at halftime.

Nuss opened the second half scoring nine straight points for Central Methodist, including a 23-foot three from the top of the key 50 seconds into the second half, to put the Eagles ahead. The O'Fallon, Mo, native drilled four treys in the first 4:10 of the first half, leading to a 41-30 edge.

The Lady Ravens answered with a 7-0 spurt, as Kelsey Anselmi found Liz Stinson in the post for a layup at the 13:03 mark.

The Eagle defense focused on stopping Payne in the second half. After tallying eight in the first 20 minutes, the junior went scoreless for the final period. Meanwhile, the Eagles began to control the boards, evidenced by a Taylor Cornelison offensive rebound and putback that made the score 46-41 in favor of the home team.

Gathercole gave her team a much-needed bucket at the 6:30 mark with a shot from deep, stretching the advantage to six at 49-43. Jayde Reid answered with a three for the Lady Ravens, hitting two threes to put the visitors back up 51-49 with 4:27 on the clock. Nuss found Cornelison in the post for a bank shot on the next possession, knotting the game at 51-all.

Reid then made five straight points, including a three from the top of the key, to give Benedictine a five-point lead at the 2:15 mark.

Following a missed Benedictine free throw, Nuss canned a three on the fastbreak to cut the deficit to one possession, 59-56, with 33 seconds to go in the game, but Rosie Youngstrom made two free throws to ice the game for the Lady Ravens.

Stinson led Benedictine with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting. Murphy had nine. Anselmi tallied 13 rebounds and nine assists, which ties her for the most career assists in Benedictine history.

Nuss finished with a game-high 18 points on 6-of-12 shooting from behind the arc. Gathercole had nine. Sutton added seven. Cornelison and Robinson recorded six apiece. Robinson also had five assists.

Poteete came up with 10 rebounds.

Central Methodist generated 16 steals and 22 turnovers, leading to 20 points off turnovers and 13 on the fastbreak.

The Eagles travel to Culver-Stockton (Mo.) on Thursday, Feb. 21. Tip-off is set for 5:30 p.m. CT.
