Lester Leads Lady Mustangs to WNIT Win

For the first time in program history the MACU Lady Mustangs had a shot at true post season play, and they did not disappoint coming away with a 68-56 win over the host team, Trinity Baptist College in the Bible College WNIT.

Both teams struggled to get going early in the game as a defensive battle would lead MACU to a 22-10 lead at the half.  The 10 points are the fewest points the Lady Mustangs have given up in a half this season.  The second half would be a different story as both teams were able to get going offensively led by MACU Senior Tierra Lester with 21 points that included a 9-9 performance from the free throw line to go along with 8 rebounds.  Junior Talethia Alexander connected on 5 three pointers for her 15 points while freshman Cierra Cook had 17 points and 6 assists.  

The Lady Mustangs return to action March 2nd for their final game of the season when they take on the #1 seeded Trinity College of Florida for the WNIT Championship.  The game will be lived streamed through the TBC Eagles starting at 8 pm.  For more information on ways you can support MACU Athletics or to be recruits by the Mustangs, go to www.gomacumustangs.com
