The St. Gregory's University women's basketball team used a balanced attack in defeating previously unbeaten Lyon (Ark.) College 73-59 on Saturday at Becknell Gymnasium.
Four Cavaliers scored in double figures as SGU won for the second time in three games.
SGU (4-5) led for most of the game, turning in one of its best shooting nights of the season. The Cavs shot 53 percent from the field and hit 45 percent from beyond the arc. Leticia Silva scored a game-high 15 points on 5 of 8 shooting for SGU.
Stacy Lee and Kalie Lucas scored 12 each, and Tess Robbins turned in her first double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 boards.
The Cavs scored 18 points off 18 Scot miscues and held the home team to 30 percent from the field.
SGU raced out to an early 27-12 lead after hitting 11 of its first 18 shots, including 4 of 7 from three-point range. Lyon, however, slowly cut into that advantage, going on a 15-0 run over the next seven minutes to tie the game at 27. The Scots led 33-31 at the break after forcing 16 first-half turnovers.
Down by three early in the second half, the Cavs went on a decisive 21-6 run over a six-minute span to take a 53-41 advantage. SGU made seven of its 10 shots during that stretch. Lyon cut the lead to six at the 3:12 mark but got no closer.
SGU returns to action Wednesday at home against Park University. That game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
