SFU wins over HU women

The St. Francis Cougars snapped the Huntington University women’s basketball team’s four-game win streak by handing their visitors an 82-74 loss Saturday, Feb. 6, at the Hutzell Athletic Center.

With this win, the Cougars improve to 13-9 overall, 7-6 in the CL while the Foresters drop to 10-7 overall, 6-6 in the league.

Freshman Emily Seboe scorched the nets in the first quarter by drilling four three-pointers. She finished the half with 15 points to go along with six rebounds to keep her team within a point of their hosts, 37-36, by the midway point. While the third quarter saw St. Francis outscore HU by three, the gap between the two teams never stretched beyond two possessions through the first 30 minutes.

The Cougars missed just two field goals in the fourth quarter. They were also 13-for-15 from the charity stripe which accounted for half their points in the final 10 minutes.

Seboe went off for a career-best 28 points. She finished with six triples and was a perfect 4-for-4 from the line. The forward also nabbed a career-high nine rebounds to just miss out on a double double.   

Sam Vaughn also had a banner day for Coach Lori Culler and crew. The senior playmaker put up 26 points to establish a new career-best in addition to collecting eight rebounds, three assists and three steals. Alexandria Bope, Dazia Drake and Celeste Ryman each added six points.
