BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – Junior guard Allie Warren scored a career-high 22 points for the Bryn Athyn College women's basketball team in a 67-55 Colonial States Athletic Conference loss to Centenary (N.J.) Wednesday night in Asplundh Field House.
Warren shot 6-of-17 from the field, 5-of-10 from behind the 3-point arc, in 38 minutes of action to best her previous career high of 21 points—which came on Dec. 2, 2017 at Wilson College. It is the third time in her career that Warren has drained a career-best five 3-pointers.
After allowing the first two points of the game, Warren knocked down a pair of treys and Alexis Mitchem made a basket during an 8-0 run to give the Lions an 8-2 lead at the 5:36 mark of the opening quarter. The Lions fell behind 11-10 after a 9-2 Centenary (1-6, 1-1 CSAC) run, but Bryn Athyn bounced right back to reclaim a 14-11 lead on two Warren free throws. Alisha McKnight snapped a 14-all tie with a 1-for-2 trip to the free throw line with 16 seconds left to give Bryn Athyn (0-7, 0-3 CSAC) a 15-14 lead after one.
Bryn Athyn remained in front until a Katie Alvarez put back at the 5:48 mark of the second quarter sparked a 7-0 Cyclone run that gave the visitors a 25-20 advantage. Centenary ended the half with a 7-2 surge to lead 32-24 at the break.
The third quarter belonged to the Cyclones as they shot 58.8 percent (10-of-17) and doubled up the Lions 26-13 to extend the gap to 58-37.
Bryn Athyn rallied in the final quarter to close the margin to 65-55 on a Lauren Beck free throw with 16 seconds remaining. The Lions outscored the Cyclones 18-9 in the final stanza and shot 4-of-7 from 3-point range.
Clayshonia Cogmon added 10 points and six rebounds, while McKnight had eight points, five assists, and four boards.
Centenary received a pair of 19-point, 11-rebound performances from Jessica McKenzie and Alvarez. Taylor Bossert contributed 11 points and six assists in a reserve role.
Bryn Athyn returns to non-conference play with a trip to the University of Valley Forge on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 1 p.m.
