The Lady Cats fell to Columbia College Monday, picking up their second loss of the season.

The team had been on a six-game win streak after losing the season opener in October.

Leaving the first half, the Lady Cats trailed 39-35.    

The Lady Cats started off the second half with a field goal from senior Aleksei Smith. The team trailed by only two points just two minutes into the half. 

However, the Lady Cats were unable to hold their opponent. 

Columbia hit three field goals back to back to put them ahead by 8 points. 

The team managed to increase the deficit to 11 points by the end of the third quarter.

Despite efforts to battle back, the Lady Cats would trail by six points or more for the remainder of the game. 

For the game, the Lady Cats made 23 of 57 shots from the field and 10 of 27 beyond the arc. 

They tallied up 13 assists.

Two players for the Lady Cats put up double digit points. Freshman Harper Little added 17 to the board, while freshman Julie Stone put up 12. Junior Abby Oliver and freshman Kayley Frank both added eight points of their own.
