Dallas Christian College – 65
Welch College – 55
March 5, 2015. Poor shooting proved to be the difference as the Lady Flames fell to Dallas Christian College, 65-55, in the first round of the Association of Christian College Athletics National Tournament.
In the first half, Welch shot only 26.7% from the floor and 7.69% from outside the arc. The second half was a slight improvement, but not enough to pull out a win.
Despite the poor shooting, the Flames were able to pull within three points late in the game before they had to foul to try and get the ball back. The Crusaders were able to knock down their free throws to seal the victory.
“Our shot selection wasn’t bad, the ball just wouldn’t go in the hole,” said Flames’ coach Larry Bryan.
Ashton Johnson led three Flames in double figures with 20 points. Leslie Nichols had a double-double with 12 points and 14 rebounds. Jessie Melvin chipped in with 10 points.
The Flames will play today (Friday) at 12:30 pm. You can watch it live at: youtube.com/accasports.
