by Ed Beach

The Drury Lady Panthers improved to 3-0 on their four-game exhibition series in Canada with a 95-70 win over Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec on Tuesday.

Drury used a 10-0 run to pull away from the Stingers in the first quarter, led 27-14 after the first ten minutes, and built a 50-31 halftime lead. The Lady Panthers led by as much as 36 in the fourth period.

Freshman Alana Findley led the team in scoring for a second-straight game putting up 17 points with five rebounds, four steals, and three assists in 19 minutes. The Fair Grove product went 7 for 11 from the field in the game.

Another freshman, Berryville, Arkansas product Hannah Morrell, also reached double-figures with 10 points as the 6-2 center went 5 for 7 from the floor.

The Lady Panthers shot 51 percent from the field hitting 35 of 69 shots, and they forced 37 Concordia turnovers. All 15 players that made the trip for the Lady Panthers saw action and all 15 scored. Emily Parker did not travel with the team due to a previously scheduled missions trip.

Concordia, a public university with an enrollment of more than 46,000, was led by Sabrina Lineus and Caroline Task who both scored 18 points.

Drury concludes their four-game exhibition series in Canada on Wednesday with a game at the University of Quebec at Montreal. Tipoff is at 3:30 pm (Central).
