Lafayette vs. St. Bonaventure
November 24, 2009
Lafayette returned home looking to snap a brief, two-game slide by handing St. Bonaventure its first loss of the season. Unfortunately, things did not fall the Leopards' way as they dropped a 58-38 decision to the Bonnies. The Leopards were nearly evenly matched with St. Bonaventure in field goal percentage and three-point percentage, but the Bonnies held a definitive edge in rebounds (35-24) and forced 17 Lafayette turnovers. Junior LaKeisha Wright led the Lafayette offense with 13 points. Classmate Lauren Jackson chipped in 11 to go along with her career-high four assists. The Leopards jumped out to a quick 9-3 lead but Alaina Walker's fastbreak layup handed St. Bonaventure its first lead of the night at 22-21 with 4:40 on the clock and the Bonnies never again trailed in the game.
