Early defense, scoring spark send Leafs to third straight win

Prigge leads team in scoring; Archibeque, Roe combine for 11 assists

BANNOCKBURN, Ill. — Alyson Prigge scored a team-high 16 points and the Goshen College women’s basketball team won its third straight game Friday night, knocking off Kentucky Christian University 72-53 at the Trojan Classic hosted by Trinity International University.


Prigge shot 6-for-9 from the floor and connected on four 3-pointers in 14 minutes as she recorded her highest point total of the last two years. Graysen Cockerham added 15 points and 6 steals for the Maple Leafs (3-1).


GC’s defense held Kentucky Christian (0-6) to 3-of-15 from the floor in the first 10 minutes, taking leads of 18-9 at the quarter and 41-28 at the half. KCU finished the game shooting 17-for-53 for 32.1 percent.


Sydney Foster scored a game-high 20 points for the Knights, who outscored Goshen 17-10 in the third quarter before Goshen responded with a 21-8 edge in the final stanza. Shelby Slone added 8 points and 9 rebounds.


Mariah Roe led the Maple Leafs with a career-high 6 assists while Haley Archibeque added 5, matching her best total in the last 12 months. Goshen racked up 18 helpers as a team, posting a 1.29 assist-to-turnover ratio that was the program’s highest against an NAIA opponent in more than two seasons.


Graysen Cockerham finished with 6 steals to lead all players.


The Maple Leafs return to action Saturday on day 2 of the classic, squaring off with Trinity International at approximately 5 p.m. EST.
