WBB Celts Tame Lions

"We were really locked in defensively in the first half," said Head Coach Mike Ricks. "When we defend and execute well, we play some pretty good basketball."

Amber Arceneaux-Francis led the Celts with her UST-career high of 36 points and 21 rebounds. Emily Sebo chipped a season-high 13 points.

The Celts return home for a conference showdown with Huston-Tillotson University at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 8 in Jerabeck Gym. Ricks knows his team needs to keep momentum on its side before heading out for a stretch of five road games.

"We need to stay focused right now and get better every day," Ricks said. "If we keep working hard, we will give ourselves a chance to accomplish our goals."
