Abilene Christian tops Houston Baptist 71-54 at home

ACU is now 9-0 all-time against the Huskies

ABILENE, Texas — Abilene Christian tops Houston Baptist 71-54 for another conference win. Now sitting third in the Southland conference, ACU has 10 conference wins and 18 overall.

Head coach Julie Goodenough was proud of the way her team fought in the end despite their poor outside shooting in the second half. The Wildcats began driving the land more down the wire which brought more points on the board.

"Three's didn't fall very well in the third. We talked about how we needed to get the ball inside to Lexie Ducat. She has to be pretty bruisned up, it was a battle in there," coach Goodenough. 

Senior Breanna Wright led the team with 20 points with the win over the Huskies. "Best part about being a family is we always push each other. Even if we gave up some of our lead we didn't give up and we kept working hard to gt the win."

ACU travels to Corpus Christi to take on Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Saturday at 1pm for another conference match-up.
