SAC WOMEN'S BB: Hampton sparks No. 4 LCU past OBU

LUBBOCK, Texas — Nicole Hampton recorded her 13th double-double of the season with 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead No.4 Lubbock Christian University to a 73-45 Sooner Athletic Conference victory over Oklahoma Baptist University Saturday afternoon inside Rip Griffin Center.

The first half was full of runs and momentum shifts. Oklahoma Baptist opened the game with a 5-0 run before LCU scored their first points leading to a 13-0 run for a 13-5 lead with 14:40 remaining in the first half. OBU countered with a 6-0 run and LCU answered back with a 5-0 run for a 18-13 lead midway through the first half. The Lady Bison, with eight points in the half by Zbeyda Aremi, trailed LCU 26-23 with 3:37 left in the half, but then things started falling apart for OBU. LCU closed the half on a 10-2 run for a 36-25 halftime lead.

OBU went the final 6:22 of the first half without a field goal. Carrying over into the second half, it turned into a span of 7:24 until Charity Fowler hit a three-pointer for the Lady Bison to end the dry spell. They would go another 6:53 until scoring another field goal. The two runs without a field goal calculated into a span of 14:17 in which the Lady Bison had just two field goals. By the time the streak ended, it was 53-33 with LCU leading and 12:05 remaining.

Overall in the game, OBU was held to six three-point field goals and eight two-point field goals, as they were 14-of-56 from the field (25%). They were also forced into 18 turnovers. LCU outscored OBU 28-8 in the paint and shot 41.1% (23/56) from the field. Hampton was joined in double-figures by teammates Kelsey Canavan (12 points), Emily Atkins (10 points) and Kelsey Hoppel (10 points). Oklahoma Baptist received 14 points from Fowler and 10 points from Aremi.
