Hendrix WBB Defeats LeTourneau University, 53-39

Scott County True Value Hardware November Deals of the Month

CONWAY- Hendrix got major offensive contributions from a multitude of players on Sunday afternoon in route to a comfortable 53-39 win over the LeTourneau Yellowjackets at Grove Gymnasium.

Simone Shields and Bella Cates led the Warriors with 9 points each. Ava Knoedl backed that up with 8 points, while Megan Gray and Riley Brady each recorded 7 points.

Hendrix led 24-15 at the halftime break after surviving a 9-0 Yellowjacket run to start the second quarter. The lead gave Drew Gaeng‘s squad some breathing room heading into the second half, and they would finish the game having not been outscored in any quarter.

The Warriors shot just 28.8% from the field, and were 3-of-16 from deep while being out-rebounded 45-39. However, Hendrix took full advantage of LeTourneau’s foul troubles over the course of 40 minutes by knocking down 20 of 26 free throws from the stripe.

The Warriors’ depth would prove to be a massive advantage as well. Hendrix got 27 points off the bench on Sunday afternoon compared to LeTourneau’s 10.

The win improves Hendrix to 1-2 on the year. They will now hit the road for their next three regular season contests, beginning Arkansas State University on November 21 and Centenary on November 25 in Jackson, Miss.
