LONGVIEW, TEXAS (March 3, 2018) – Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) women's basketball fell to LSU-Shreveport (LSUS) in the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) Tournament Championship match 64-77. The Saints and the Pilots have both earned a bid to the NAIA National Tournament and they will find out their place during the bracket reveal on Wednesday, March 7.
Head Coach Christopher Minner commented, "We lost to 23 and 0, we battled, but when you have two of the best players on the same team it's hard, and (those two) took over. They beat us three times this year for a reason. They out-rebounded us by 10 and we missed our free throws. You can't beat a top 12 team doing that. We need to prepare for nationals, we are going to have to work on our rebounding because we will see some big players. I don't think we'll see better guards than ours. We can beat anyone. We just got to do it. We played okay today but not good enough."
Destinee King (JR/Antelope, Calif.) led the team on defense with nine rebounds and she added nine points. LeShore recorded four assists. Francesca Patrick (SR/Killeen, Texas) finished with eight points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal.
LeShore, Patrick and Rendon were selected to the RRAC All-Tournament Team.
Overall, the Saints shot 20-of-52 from the field for 38.5 percent, 4-of-13 from 3-point range for 30.8 percent and 20-of-30 from free-throw range for 66.7 percent.
The Pilots shot 27-of-60 from the field for 45 percent, 7-of-22 from 3-point range for 31.8 percent and 16-of-18 from the charity stripe for 88.9 percent.
The Saints made 29 rebounds and forced 20 turnovers, while the Pilots made 39 rebounds and forced 21 turnovers.
