Lady Royals Return to Their Winning Ways

FR Guard Alysia PickettFR Guard Alysia Pickett

Tuesday night in Springdale, AR at the Jones Center featured a matchup between Ecclesia College and Williams Baptist Univesity (JV).


The game did not take long to show who the dominant force was with Eccelsia immediately assembling a 28-15 lead at the end of the first quarter. The hot start for the Royals did not slow down after the break either. With several Royals connecting from deep the score only spread more. Upon 41% shooting from long range, and 50% from the field the EC lead grew to 52-28 entering the intermission.

The second half saw much of the same as the Royals would push on to win 91-71. It was truly a team effort that saw three Lady Royals eclipse 20 points, a total of 16 assists equalling more than half of the field goals made, a very impressive seven team turn-overs, and a crushing 14 team steals.

Royal Performances:

Alysia Pickett: 20 points, 9 assists, 6 rebounds

Madison Bailey: 20 points, 3-4 3PT, 5 rebounds

Gabby Adams: 24 points, 3 steals
