Despite having a 55-8 overall record against the Sam Houston State womens basketball team, Stephen F. Austin was unable to contain Britni Martin as she scored 23 points and lead the Bearkats to a 64-50 victory.

The win stopped the Bearkats three-game losing streak, having lost to Lamar, Oral Roberts and Central Arkansas.

We were so glad to be home and to play against SFA and get this win, head coach Brenda Nicholls said. It gives us momentum.

The Bearkats (15-11, 10-4 SLC) took the lead early in the game and never gave it up.

Late in the second half, the Lumberjacks (11-15, 6-9 SLC) brought the score within four (22-18) but Martin scored eight straight points to send the Berakats into the locker room with a 30-18 lead. She finished the game with 23 points and six assists.

Martins leadership is huge, Nicholls said. Shes been fired up.

Fellow seniors Chanice Smith and Sequeena Thomas both chipped in 14 points and combined for a total of 13 rebounds.

These seniors are leading this team, Nicholls said.

The Lumberjacks were able to bring the score within six points with a little over 10 minutes left to play, but over the next three minutes the Kats went on a 13-5 run and SFA never got back within 10 points.

Were going to keep executing and take everything day to day, Nicholls said.

Stephen F. Austin had three players who scored in double digits. Porsha Roberts led the Lumberjacks with 12 points and 10 rebounds, Daylyn Harris scored 11 and Annette Davis scored 10.

With this win, the Bearkats still hold a second place tie with Lamar in the Southland Conference.

We have two more games at home and were going to take them one at a time, Nicholls said.

SHSU will have the weekend off in preparation to host McNeese State next Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
