Lincoln Memorial went on another run to open the second half, this time jumping out with an 8-2 run. The Railsplitters immediately attacked the rim, feeding the 6-foot, 5-inch Lauren Cochrane down low. Cochrane scored LMU's first six points, all in the paint. She finished with 20 points, 14 coming in the second half.
King was marred by sub-20 percent shooting from the field. The Lady Tornado went 6-for-32 (.188) from the floor and hit two of their 15 three-point attempts in the second half, allowing LMU to jump out to a 30-point lead near the six-minute mark.
Mikki Oliver (Hampton, Tenn.) led the Tornado with 11 points and had four rebounds. Four Lady Tornado scored eight points. Kalen Collins (Wise, Va.) scored eight and added eight rebounds, leading the Tornado in that category.
The Lady Tornado will play the Mars Hill Lions on Dec. 19. The game has been moved from Charlotte Bobcats Arena to Mars Hill, N.C. due to the recently resolved National Basketball Association lockout.
