Trinity Finishes SCAC Weekend Sweep With Dominating Win

San Antonio – The 13th-ranked Tiger women's basketball team wrapped up its Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference weekend with a 97-54 victory over Colorado College on Saturday.


After Colorado College got the first basket of the game to take the early lead, Trinity hit a pair of free throws less than two minutes into the game that put the home team in front for good.

The Trinity Tigers were unable to pull away from the visitors until a 15-2 run midway through the quarter turned a 12-9 lead into a lopsided 16-point advantage.

Trinity finished the quarter with a 37-13 lead, which was the most points scored in any quarter this season for the Tigers.

The second quarter was more of the same as Trinity built the lead to 32 points (56-24) by the half, and Colorado never got closer than 29 points the rest of the game.



Trinity improved its overall record to 9-2 and remained unbeaten at 2-0 in the SCAC. Colorado College fell to 4-10 and 1-2 SCAC with the loss.

Abby Holland led five Tiger players in double figures with 15 points in just 17 minutes of action, hitting 6-12 from the field, pulling down five rebounds, and recording three steals.

Micah Weaver had 11 points on 5-7 shooting in 13 minutes of action, while three Trinity players came off the bench to reach double digits.

Julia Ackerman and Emily Daniel finished with 12 points each, while Jackie Layng dropped in 10 points to go with three steals.

Trinity was a perfect 11-11 from the free throw line as a team, backing up an outstanding shooting performance. The Tigers also drilled just over 55% of their shots overall, as well as hitting 12-25 (48%) from three-point range.

The Tiger defense was also outstanding recording 17 total steals and forcing 33 turnovers in the game. Trinity also held Colorado to less than 36% shooting and the visitors were unable to score more than 15 points in any quarter.
