Game 28
Lafayette vs. American
February 27, 2010

A solid first half put Lafayette in a prime position to grab a Senior Day win against American, but an offensive slump in the second half resulted in a 68-47 loss on the final day of the regular season. After shooting 48 percent in the opening half, Lafayette (6-22, 4-10) shot just 32 percent over the final 20 minutes of play. LaKeisha Wright led Lafayette with 15 points and Melissa Downey joined her in double figures with 10, just two shy of her career high. It was a one-point game (AU 30-29) at halftime. Three minutes into the second half, Downey went to the line following an American technical and converted on one of her attempts to keep the Leopards within two (34-32). Alicia Manning followed with a long jumper as the shot clock expired to tie the game. The Eagles countered with an 11-2 run to take a 45-36 lead with 10:21 on the clock. Downey's three-pointer made for a 45-39 game but the Leopards were unable to pull any closer than five points. American took its first double-digit lead (52-42) on an Ebony Edwards free throw with 6:19 on the clock and the Eagles outscored Lafayette 16-5 over the final six-plus minutes of the game to run away with the win.
