The Lenoir-Rhyne Women's Basketball Team (8-3, 3-0) moved into sole possession of first place in the South Atlantic Conference with a 73-56 victory over Wingate (7-6, 1-2) Wednesday evening at Cuddy Arena.
L-R sophomore guard Jazmine Charles (Lexington, N.C.) led all scorers with 17 points off the bench as the Bears defeated the Bulldogs for only the second time in school history on the road.
Junior forward Nneka Awuruonye (Charlotte, N.C.) added 12 points for the Bears, who beat the Bulldogs on the road for the first time since the 1999-00 season.
Wingate's Sarah Wollett (Raleigh, N.C.) finished with a team-high 16 points and Chantal Dunbar (Norfolk, Va.) added 15 points and 11 rebounds but the Bulldogs shot just 33 percent (21-of-64) in the loss.
The Bears jumped out to a 32-23 advantage at halftime and never saw their lead fall under six points the rest of the way.
Charles scored 12 of her 17 points in the second half while freshman guard Jordan Hiatt (Mount Airy, N.C.) finished with 11 points for the Bears, who won their third straight game.
Lenoir-Rhyne also shot 52 percent (14-of-27) in the second half of play and forced Wingate into 21 turnovers in the victory.
Lenoir-Rhyne travels to Brevard in a South Atlantic Conference game on Saturday at 2pm.
