COLUMBIA, Ky. – The Lindsey Wilson women’s basketball team prepares for a conference weekend with one game on the road against Top-Ranked Thomas More (Ky.) and the second game back at home versus Wilberforce (Ohio), on Thursday night and Saturday afternoon, respectively.

The Saints and the Bulldogs were the first opponents LWC faced to ring in the new year in the beginning of January, taking a game from Wilberforce but dropping their matchup against Thomas More.

Thomas More (21-0, 16-0 MSC) are continuing their national championship defense by boasting a perfect record and slot in at No. 1 in the NAIA poll.

Senior Zoie Barth centerpiece for the Saints offensive output with the ninth-highest scoring average in the conference at 13.7, while also dishing out the most assists with 3.2. Barth enters after a 17 point performance at Cumberlands (Ky.) last Saturday.

Guard Emily Simon paces the Saints in rebounds per game with 6.7 while Freshman standout Rylee Turner slots in just behind with 4.5, but averages the second most blocks per game in the conference at 1.3.

Wilberforce (3-16, 0-15 MSC) enters after falling to No. 24 Georgetown (Ky.) still searching for that elusive first conference win.

With 17.9 points per contest, Junior Kadai Greene-Tucker leads Bulldog offense while also leading the conference in points per game.

Fellow Junior Kahlani Pack pulls down the most rebounds for Wilberforce at 4.2 per game, while also adding on 4.6 points per game.

Lindsey Wilson (9-12, 3-12 MSC) enters after falling to visiting Cumberland (Tenn.) last Saturday evening. The Blue Raiders finished the weekend going 1-1 against Tennessee Southern and Cumberland (Tenn.). 

They are led by the trio of Lucy Patterson, Maleigha Oldham, and Amelia Hodges, who the latter of the three has averaged 14.2 points per game in her last eight outings. 

Patterson paces the offensive output for the Blue Raiders with 12.6 points per game, the thirteenth-highest mark in the conference. She also boasts the second-highest rebounding average in the conference with a mark of 9.3 per game.
