MARSHALL, MO -- The Missouri Valley College women's basketball team traveled to Davenport, Iowa Tuesday night for a non-conference matchup with St. Ambrose University. The Lady Vikings overcame a large first half deficit to tie the game at halftime, but fell late in the 57-51 defeat.

The Lady Vikings trailed early, by as many as 12 points less than four minutes into the game. MVC bounced back and used a 21-3 run midway through the first half to take a 21-15 lead. The run was capped off by a Freshman Guard Rayna Smith layup. From there the two teams traded baskets and the game went into halftime tied at 29-29. After missing their first seven shots, the Lady Vikings went 13 of 29 from the field.

To start the second half MVC got off to a slow start and St. Ambrose built up a seven point lead within the first five minutes of the half. The Lady Vikings eventually worked it back to a one point deficit at 44-43 thanks to a three-point field goal by Freshman Point Guard Julia Vasquez with just under nine minutes left. St. Ambrose would not relinquish the lead though, and scored the game's final five points from the free throw line to earn the 57-51 win.

For the Lady Vikings Smith led in scoring with 15 points to go along with five assists and five rebounds. Junior Guard Regine Mercenario added 10 points with three rebounds.
