Paige Baechle scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds off the bench and Maggie Prewitt scored 24 points Saturday to lead the Centre College women to a 67-56 win over host Trinity.
“This was a great game down here. We came out in the first half and shot it well and Trinity got off to a slow start and did not shoot well,” said Centre coach Wendie Austin-Robinson, whose team led 34-22 at the half.
“I’m extremely proud of the kids having to come back and play back-to-back against a tough, physical Trinity team which upset DePauw on Friday night. It was a great growing opportunity for our team. We’ve got people playing key positions that are not used to playing those positions. The kids in the second half did a great job of executing the scoring report.”
Baechle was 10 of 16 from the floor, while Prewitt was 7-for-17 shooting, hitting three of eight 3-pointers and going 7 of 8 at the free throw line. She also had seven assists and three steals.
