COLLEGE HOOPS: L&C women get 2-OT win over Concordia

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

• Tayler Wang's game-high 30 points and team-high 12 rebounds, and Kaitlin Mathewson's decisive 3-pointer with seven seconds left lifted Lewis & Clark to a two-overtime, 81-78 victory Tuesday night over visiting Concordia.

The Cavaliers fell to 1-8 with their eighth consecutive defeat. Lewis & Clark improved to 3-3.

Concordia took a 69-63 lead with 2:21 left in the first OT, but L&C scored the next six points to stay alive.

A jump shot by Concordia's Briannah Smith, a 5-5 freshman guard from San Francisco, gave her team a 78-76 lead.

But 5-11 freshman forward Avisat Afolabi, from West Hills, Calif., hit two free throws for L&C to force the game's 11th tie, and Matthewson, a 5-10 sophomore guard, struck from long range for the Pioneers' win.

Wang, a 5-9 senior guard from Kamuela, Hawaii, has three double-doubles this season.

Afolabi had 13 points off the bench.

Caitlyn McCutcheon, a 6-2 junior guard from St. Mary's Academy, led Concordia with 22 points and a game-high 19 rebounds.

The game kicked off a stretch of six in a row on the road for Concordia and was its final tuneup for the Cascade Collegiate Conference opener Friday at Southern Oregon.

L&C will play at Corban on Tuesday.

• Shoni Schimmel scored 14 points to help No. 7 Louisville win 91-49 at home Tuesday night over Missouri State.

Louisville (8-1) played most of the game without senior guard Antonita Slaugher, who collapsed and was taken to a hospital in an ambulance. Louisville later said she was awake, alert and undergoing tests.

Missouri State fell to 1-5 with its fourth straight loss.

Schimmel, from Franklin High, was 5 of 15 from the field, including 4 of 10 on 3-pinters, in 23 minutes.

Her sister, Jude Schimmel, made 3 of 7 field-goal attempts, going 1 of 3 from beyond the arc, and had 7 points and a game-high 7 assists in 24 minutes off the bench.
