Peace College (8-13, 4-11 USAS) pulled out of a double-digit first half deficit to defeat Meredith (6-13, 5-9 USAS) for the second time this season. Senior leader LeAnne Horne came alive after the break to help the Pacers snap a four-game losing streak with a 63-59 win.
Peace protected the ball well in tonight’s win with only four turnovers in the first half and 14 on the game compared to 24 from the Angels. Ball control combined with 18 second-half points from Horne helped PC chip away at Meredith’s lead. Peace finally tied the game with just over four minutes remaining after a 12-4 run, including two threes from Horne.
Both teams battled in the final minutes of play with the Pacers on top at the buzzer.
First-year Megan Sherrill gave the Pacers solid minutes and grabbed a game-high four steals. She tallied seven assists, seven points, and seven rebounds in 35 minutes of action. Angel Fuller and Horne notched eight rebounds apiece, and Brenna Mickey recorded 12 points in the win. Gina Lyons provided key minutes coming off the bench.
Meredith’s Brittany Cornelius notched a double-double in her final pairing with the Pacers with 14 rebounds and 14 points. Megan Rahn topped all with 24 points, adding nine rebounds.
Peace hosts Greensboro College Saturday in the team’s Pink Zone breast cancer awareness game. Tipoff is slated for 2 p.m. in the Hermann gymnasium. Join Peace College as we welcome next year’s recruits to campus for an all-day affair. The department of athletics and the Pacer Club host a postgame reception for prospects and their families in the President’s Dining Room in Belk Hall.
See you on the sidelines dressed in pink!
