COLUMBIA, KY (Sat 14 Jan 2017) - For the second game in a row, the Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team lead wire-to-wire in a Mid-South Conference victory as the No. 4-ranked Blue Raiders defeated Cumberlands (KY) 84-60 on Saturday afternoon at Biggers Sports Center.

The victory keeps Lindsey Wilson perfect on the season with a 17-0 record, adding to the longest win streak in program history, and improving to 5-0 in MSC play.

Cumberlands has now lost four of their last five games and falls to 10-8 on the year and 2-4 in the MSC.

Kayla Styles led the Blue Raiders in points and rebounds as she recorded her eighth double-double of the season, which she had by halftime with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Chanel Roberts followed with 18 points, adding five rebounds, four assists and three steals. J'Nayah Hall (12 points) and Kayla Richardson (11 points) also finished in double figures. Teanna Curry set a new career-high with a trio of three pointers, going 3-for-3 from beyond the arc.

The Blue Raiders started the game fast by scoring the opening six points of the game in transition, forcing an early Cumberlands timeout.

Lindsey Wilson's offense continued to flourish in the opening quarter, hitting 10-of-12 shots from the floor to start the contest - an 83.3 percent clip - to go along with a trio of three pointers. Cumberlands kept the Blue Raiders from getting too far ahead with their three-point shooting ability, hitting four three pointers in the quarter.

Lindsey Wilson pushed the lead to as large as 11 points at 25-14 before the quarter came to a close with the Blue Raiders out front 25-17.

Cumberlands closed the deficit down to three points at 25-22 with five-straight points early in the second quarter, only for the Blue Raiders to score six-straight of their own to make it a 31-22 game with 6:20 to play in the half.

A three-point play by Chanel Roberts pushed the lead to 12 points at 36-24, the largest yet. The Blue Raiders held that 12-point lead two more times in the half before finally pushing it to 14 courtesy of Malerie Martin. Martin missed on a three-point attempt, but followed her shot for the offensive rebound and putback to make it 44-30. Roberts added one more basket to make it a 16-point advantage for the Blue Raiders heading into the lockerroom, part of a 7-0 run to close out the first half.

Lindsey Wilson shot a blazing 61.3 percent from the floor in the opening half with four made three pointers. Cumberlands was limited to a 30.3 mark from the floor but made five three-point shots. The Blue Raiders nearly doubled up the Patriots in rebounding in the opening half with a 21-11 advantage, and LWC scored 28 of their first half points in the paint.

The two teams traded baskets early in the third quarter before a Patriot score made it a 55-40 game in favor of the Blue Raiders at the 5:56 mark. Lindsey Wilson continued to show intensity on both ends of the floor as the Blue Raiders rolled off 11-straight points on offense capped off by a Jynea Harris field goal that made it 66-40 with 2:16 to play in the quarter. During that streak defensively, the Lindsey Wilson defense held Cumberlands to nine-consecutive empty possessions (0-for-3 shooting, one offensive foul, five turnovers) as the Blue Raiders took a 70-45 lead into the fourth quarter.

Lindsey Wilson pushed the lead to as many as 29 in the final quarter of play following a pair of free throws by Hall as the Blue Raiders closed out the contest with an 84-60 victory.
