LC State opened with a 71-59 road win over Corban University in a battle of the Warriors. LC had to battle back after Corban jumped out to a 9-3 lead to open the game but put together a strong second quarter (25-10) to take control of the game. Callie Stevens led LC State with 20 points, while Ellie Sander followed with 15 points (7-for-16) and Payton Hymas (5-for-10) chipped in 12 points.
On Sunday, the Warriors capped the weekend with a 74-58 victory over Bushnell University to hand the Beacons their first conference loss of the season. Hannah Broyles came up big for the Warriors, posting 23 points on 7-of-12 shooting, including a 5-of-6 performance from beyond the arc. Maddie Holm grabbed a double-double with 11 points and 15 rebounds, while Sander also added double-digit points with 12 in the game.
The Warriors have a big test in front of them as they host No. 20-ranked Eastern Oregon University on Friday, Dec. 30, for the top spot in the conference standings. Both LC State and EOU have undefeated CCC records coming into the contest.
