Posted on 2/12/2018 8:48:00 AM.
(Seguin) – The Texas Lutheran women’s basketball team gave head coach Mel Dixon his 700th career win (high school and college combined) Friday night in a 61-45 thumping of Centenary, but capped the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference home stand with a 66-36 loss to Austin College on Saturday at TLU’s Memorial Gym.

Dixon’s career record stands at 700-394, which includes a 91-66 mark at TLU and a 609-328 record as a high school head coach.

In the TLU win Friday, the Bulldogs held the Ladies to to only 11.5 percent from the field in the first half and to 22.9 (13-for-57) shooting percent for the game. Centenary did not have a made field goal in the first quarter.

TLU shot 44.9 percent overall and scored 18 points off of CC turnovers.
Leading the Bulldogs with 16 points, 10 rebounds, and six blocks was junior forward Presley Stephens.

Sophomore guard Jordan Estrada snagged five steals for the Bulldogs to go along with seven points, four rebounds and a block. Cami Davis contributed eight points, three rebounds, an assist and a steal.

Abby Hroch and Anna Koenig each pulled down four rebounds and scored six points for TLU. Koenig added a steal and an assist.

For the Ladies, Jasmine Morris and Bre Frierson each scored eight points. Kayla King grabbed 11 rebounds and scored seven points.

Saturday evening, Reagan Chiaverini scored 17 points and had four rebounds to lead Austin College against TLU. Bryce Frank pulled down 10 rebounds and scored 16 points.

Jordan Estrada led the Bulldogs with 10 points. She added three rebounds.

Cami Davis put up eight points and grabbed five rebounds, and Abby Hroch pulled down seven rebounds.

Jasmine Sauceda contributed four rebounds, two steals, and one assist.

The Bulldogs appear in their last conference match-up this Friday against Southwestern University. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. in SU's Corbin J. Robertson Center.

TLU (8-16, 4-9 SCAC) is currently in seventh place in the conference standings, a half-game back of sixth-place Schreiner (4-8), and a full game back of the team’s tied for fourth, Centenary and Colorado College, both of whom are 5-8 in the SCAC and split their head-to-head meetings with the Bulldogs. Schreiner concludes its season with two games against second-place Trinity (11-1 SCAC) this weekend, so it’s mathematically possible for TLU to lose to Southwestern and still finish tied with the Mountaineers for sixth place.
