Bacone College’s men’s and women’s basketball teams faced off against the Our Lady of the Lake Saints teams Tuesday evening, with neither Warrior team able to pull off a win this time around.
The OLLU women’s team was on a five game winning streak and the Lady Warriors hoped to end the Saint's recent success, as well as end their struggles coming off of a recent loss to the LSU-Shreveport Pilots.
The game started off very competitive, but the Lady Warriors' struggles on the board ultimately led to the Saints earning a big lead going into the half.
The Saints were able to open a commanding rebounding deficit throughout the second half, and the Warriors ended up falling to the Saints, 102-40.
Bacone’s men’s basketball team also lost, despite a competitive start. The Warriors had some early mistakes in the first half that the Saints were able to capitalize on.
Bacone fought back aggressively, but the Saints got on fire for the three-point line.
Regardless of the deficit, the Warriors would not go away quietly, as they had tremendous help from Gerry Glover and Matt Qualls on their attempt to pull out a win.
Nonetheless, the Saints took another game against Bacone, 133-109.
