Livingstone women fall in CIAA tilt at Lincoln
LINCOLN, Pa. — Livingstone went 0-for-2 on its northern CIAA road trip.
After losing on Sunday at Bowie State, the Lady Blue Bears fell here to Lincoln on Tuesday night, 68-59.
Livingstone falls to 3-6 overall and 0-2 in the CIAA. The Lions improve to 3-5 and 1-0.
The Blue Bears led for 12 of the 20 first-half minutes, but fell behind midway through the second quarter at 23-22, on the way to a 33-30 halftime deficit. The Blue Bears had led after the first quarter, 20-13, but managed just 10 points in the second period.
Livingstone guards Brittany Taylor and Zena Lovette both scored nine points in the first half, despite poor shooting. Taylor was just 1-for-5 from the floor but hit all six of her free throws. Lovette was 4-for-13 from the field in the first half.
The third quarter was even at 15-15 but Lincoln took the final period, 20-14.
The Blue Bears never regained the lead in the second half and came closest at 51-47 with 6:38 left in the game. However, a Lincoln layup and 3-point field goal 30 seconds later was basically the knockout punch.
Taylor led Livingstone with 14 points, while Lovette followed with 13.
The Blue Bears will jump right back into action on Thursday, traveling to Claflin (S.C.), for a 6 p.m. tip-off.
