ICC falls short of Lady Greyhounds in NEA at Convocation Center

Thursday, January 6, 2005

Sports Editor

A valiant comeback by the ICC Lady Cougars fell just short of its intended mark as the Sloan-Hendrix Lady Greyhounds knocked their 2AA-North Conference rivals out of the second round of the NEA Tournament 49-45 Dec. 28 at the Convocation Center on the campus of Arkansas State University.

Down by as many as 12 points in the third period of their A-AA showdown with the Lady Greyhounds, ICC rallied within a bucket of the lead with 22 ticks left in the contest.

The charity stripe proved to be an ally of Sloan-Hendrix, as the Lady Greyhounds made a couple of free throws in the waning seconds to keep ICC from deadlocking the game.

The Lady Cougars, who trailed 26-19 at the half, were led by All-NEA Tournament team member Brittney Richardson's 14 points. Sammi Fowler added 12, and Lauren Cunningham 11 for ICC.
