The Lenoir-Rhyne Women’s Basketball Team (5-4) got back on track and earned an 82-74 road victory over Shaw (1-4) Tuesday evening at C.C. Spaulding Gymnasium.

Lenoir-Rhyne junior guard Kendall Toineeta (Cherokee, N.C.) spearheaded the Bears’ attack with a triple-double – 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists – and was one of five players to score in double figures for the Bears. Toineeta also went three-for-three from behind the three-point line.

Lenoir-Rhyne junior forward Madi Suddreth (Taylorsville, N.C.) was another key contributor on the night, totaling 20 points and 13 rebounds, as the visiting team held a 51-46 edge in rebounding and limited the home squad to just 35 percent shooting (25-of-72) for the contest. Suddreth continues to lead the South Atlantic Conference in scoring at 20.0 points per contest.

Shaw lost despite the performance of LaQuisha Taylor (Charlotte, N.C.), who totaled a game-high 37 points on the night.

Shaw tried to make a run in the end but the deficit was just too great to overcome. Lenoir-Rhyne led by as many as 26 points: a 62-36 score with 3:28 left in the third stanza on a lay-up by senior guard Cassidy Joyner (Dobson, N.C.). Joyner finished with 12 points off the bench.

Lenoir-Rhyne returns home to take on Livingstone on Thursday at 6:00 p.m., at Shuford Memorial Gymnasium.
