RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University’s women’s basketball team scored the first 13 points of the game on its way to a 102-65 victory over visiting Alice Lloyd College on Wednesday at McBrayer Arena.

The game marked the first time EKU reached the 100-point mark since a 100-93 overtime victory against Morehead State on Jan. 30, 2016. It is the first time Eastern has scored 100 points in a non-overtime game since beating Cincinnati Christian, 112-34, on Dec. 3, 2015.

Eastern Kentucky shot 53 percent from the field for the game while holding ALC to 35 percent shooting. EKU out-rebounded the Eagles by 11 and out-scored the visitors off turnovers 38-18.

The Colonels will be back in McBrayer Arena on Sunday to host Chattanooga. The game is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
