CU women tie record with 27th win
Feb 25, 2013 10:30 pm
Briannica Tye led all scorers with 16 points along with six assists and five steals and No. 6 Cumberland outscored the University of the Cumberlands, 43-21, over the final 15 minutes of the game in a 71-48 victory Monday night at the Dallas Floyd Recreation Center.
It was the final regular-season game of the season for both teams before the Mid-South Conference Championships begin Thursday in Frankfort, Ky. The Bulldogs (27-2, 18-2 MSC) will take on Lindsey Wilson in the quarterfinals on Thursday at 1 p.m. CST.
Cumberland tied the school record for wins in a season with Monday’s victory, equaling the mark set by the 1998-99 squad that finished 27-7 overall and advanced to the program’s first-ever appearance in the NAIA National Tournament. The Bulldogs made 14 of their final 17 shots in the contest and added 13-of-15 free throws in the final 14:50 to turn a one-point game into a 23-point win.
