PINEVILLE, La. (KALB) - An early lead for Louisiana Christian was not enough to pull off an upset at home against (14) Loyola dropping the game 62-49.

In the first quarter, the Lady Wildcats’ offense controlled both ends of the floor, outscoring the Wolf Pack 17-12. However, Loyola’s Taylor Thomas caught fire in the second quarter as she finished the half with 15 points while hitting three three-pointers as the Wolf Pack held a five-point lead at the break.

Loyola would outscore LCU by eight in the second half to remain undefeated on the season. Thomas would finish with a game-high 23 points while shooting 9-14 from the field.

The Lady Wildcats had two scorers in double figures including Paola Abad Prieto with a team-high 13 and Claire Borot with 12 points.

LCU (2-2) will be back on the road on Friday, Nov. 25, to play Philander Smith College to start a nine-game road stretch. The next time they return to H.O. West Fieldhouse won’t be until 2023 when they welcome in Jarvis Christian on Jan. 5.
