December 5, 2009
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The Elizabeth City State Lady Vikings held on for a 58-52 victory over St. Augustine’s College Saturday night at the RL Vaughan Center.
The Lady Vikings led from the opening tip and held a 25-13 lead at the break. SAC (3-3, CIAA 2-2) opened the second half on an 11-0 run to cut the Lady Viking lead to a point (25-24) at the 16:22 mark. ECSU then reeled off seven unanswered points and the Lady Falcons would get no closer than to within three points the rest of the way. Kenyatta Gill registered her second double-double of the season with 16 points and 11 rebounds while Kearah Jefferys flirted with a triple double tallying 12 points, a career high 10 assists and 8 steals (ties career high). Tiffany Gadsden chipped in with 10 points off the bench.
Keyona Bryant and Allison Sikes paced the Lady Falcons with 22 and 13 points, respectively. Sikes added 10 boards for a double-double of her own.
