Women's Basketball Drops Heartbreaking Senior Day Battle

Lebanon, Tenn.-- Cumberland falls to Freed-Hardeman on senior night in a heartbreaking battle. The game concludes the regular season for women’s basketball.

The Phoenix (13-15, 9-13 MSC ) outshot the Lions (20-8, 16-6) MSC from the field, going 43.1% compared to Freed’s 32.7%. Cumberland had one less three pointer than Freed, hitting 3-of-11. 

Two of Cumberland’s three pointers came off the hands of Lindsey Freeman, who led the team with 14 points and five boards. Britany Miller had a solid match with 10 points, two blocks, and two rebounds.

The Lions were led by Rachel Satterly and Kalea Fleming who tied for a game-high of 17 points.  

Abby Morgan got the action going with a solid swing from outside to send CU on a 9-0 scoring run. The Phoenix played fantastic defense throughout the entire first quarter, limiting the Lions to only two points in the first nine minutes. 

Cumberland kept the pressure going into the second quarter as Freeman spread the lead out to seven with an and-one opportunity. The Lions improved on their shooting in the quarter- coming within four points of CU’s advantage on multiple occasions- but they struggled to get any significant run going. 

Kennedy Powell drove to the rim to layup a well-guarded bucket for a 30-22 score with 0:42 left in the half. In the final few seconds, Freed-Hardeman’s Kelsey Bender connected on a solid look from behind the arc to cut it down to a five point game at the break. 

The Lions jumped out of the break with some fire, putting up the first six points of the half to take their first lead at 31-30. Freeman was quick to respond with an eight foot jump shot to put CU back out in front.

Miler muscled her way through a layup to spread it out to a three point advantage, but Freed-Hardeman’s Rachel Satterly had an answer with a huge three pointer to tie it 39-39.

The Lions would go on to hit the next two buckets and close out the third with a 43-41 lead. 

Freed-Hardeman stayed on the gas to open up the final quarter as they sank the first five balls for a 48-43 score. 

Tierra Davis made a huge move to the rim to tie up the game at 51-51 with 3:05 left to play. The Lions found an opening to retake the lead off of four made free throws for a 57-53 score with less than a minute on the clock.

While driving to the rim, Lindsey Freeman caught the arm of her Lions defender and held it down on the free throw line to cut it down to four. On the following inbounding ball, Keara Sexton picked up a huge steal and finish to bring the score to 59-57 with 0:16 on the clock.  

The Lions were able to hold onto the two point lead for the remaining few minutes, coming away with a 63-60 win.
