Centre College's women got their first conference win of the season and the Centre men got strong play from their bench as the Colonels swept Hendrix Friday at Danville.
The Centre women (4-13, 1-5 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) got huge games from Liz Braun and Jacqueline Coleman in defeating second-place Hendrix (12-5, 4-2) 65-59.
Coleman scored a game-high 27 points for Centre, and Braun added 17 rebounds and eight blocked shots.
"Liz did a great job on the boards for us," Centre coach Jennifer Ruff said. "She really took away their inside post players with her blocks and kept them out of the paint."
Centre led by as many as 15 points in the second half, but Hendrix started to make a comeback with five minutes to play. However, Centre hit its free throws down the stretch to win the game.
