SAC WOMEN'S BB: St. Gregory's clips Wayland, 55-50

PLAINVIEW, Texas — CeCe Williams scored a team-high 18 points, including three from beyond the arc for the Wayland Baptist Flying Queens in their loss to St. Greg's on Saturday.

The Flying Queens must have experienced a bit of déjà vu as they trailed by three with less than a minute on the clock against St. Gregory's University on Saturday afternoon at Hutcherson Center. After falling by three to Oklahoma Baptist on Thursday night, Wayland was unable to overcome the Lady Cavaliers' late three-point lead just two days later, ultimately falling 55-50.

Head coach Tory Bryant chalked up his team's second tough loss of the week to confidence.

“Defensively, when you're only giving up 55 points at home, you've got to feel like you have a chance to win,” he said. “For the majority of game we fought hard, but in looking at the statistics, we were only 16-of-64 for the game and 5-of-30 in the second half. We weren't great in the first, but we made more shots. In the second, we just had a hard time putting it in the basket.

Wayland (13-13, 5-7) came out looking like a rejuvenated team after the tough loss on Thursday, jumping out to an early lead and maintaining it throughout the first half. The team shot 32 percent in the first 20 minutes of the contest, including an impressive 10-point contribution from CeCe Williams. The Flying Queens were able to hold off St. Greg's (10-15, 3-8) in the first half, heading to the locker room with an eight point advantage, 30-22.

The Lady Cavaliers' coach must have found a way to inspire his team at halftime, as they came out and improved their field goal percentage from 35 percent in the first half to 48 percent in the second. Conversely, Wayland's shooters went cold, only making five of their 30 attempts (17 percent) from the floor, which allowed SGU to chip away at their lead.
