IUS women’s basketball team celebrated homecoming weekend with an 84-31 victory over St. Louis College of Pharmacy on Feb. 12.

The Eutectics had trouble scoring all game. The only question that remained was how many points the Grenadiers would win the game by.

“We played well as a team,” Nicole Holman, senior guard, said. “We don’t take any team for granted, so we jumped on them pretty early.”

The game was a match-up of Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s first place team — the Grenadiers and the last-place Eutectics.

The game was far from becoming an upset. The Eutectics have struggled this year, managing to win just two games and none in conference play.

The Grenadiers scored on most of their possessions and had 41 points at the break. The Eutectics managed 31 points for the entire game.

The Grenadier defense held the Eutectics to 30-percent shooting while shooting an even 50 percent themselves.

The Grenadiers hit all their open shots and made 11 3-pointers in the game. The Grenadiers won the battle of the boards with 24 rebounds.

The Eutectics have had a tough stretch as of late, and injuries forced the team to dress just seven players. The Grenadiers had a full roster, and everyone played in the game.

No IUS starter played more than 25 minutes. Ashmere Woods, sophomore guard, scored 22 points in just 20 minutes. Woods also had 11 rebounds to complete her double-double.

Kylee Anthony, sophomore guard, hit three of her four 3-point attempts en route to a career high of 20 points.

Jenna Bailey, sophomore guard, led the Eutectics with 17 points.

No other player had scored more than six points.

Holman, who scored 8 points, said she was happy the bench had a chance to contribute to the game.

“Our bench really stepped up and continued to put points on the board,” Holman said.
