Lewis' double-double leads Langston past Paul Quinn

LANGSTON, Oklahoma – The No. 20 Langston Lady Lions keep humming along, this time knocking off Paul Quinn College 79-46 Saturday night at C.F. Gayles Gymnasium.

Aided by a career-night from Che'Ron Lewis (JR/Cushing, OK), the Lady Lions built a 35-21 halftime lead before leading by as many as 33 points in the second half to grab their 17th win on the season.

Lewis was simple a machine on offensive and defensive side.

The junior forward finished with a season-high 33 points, 13 boards, two blocks and three steals. Over her last three games she's averaged 28.3 points per game.

T'Keya Mason (SR/Long Beach, CA) scored 12 points and Darreion Clark (JR/Tulsa, OK) added 11 for Langston, who have won eight of their last ten games.

The Lady Lions shot 38 percent (27-of-70) from the field and held Paul Quinn to 34 percent (20-of-58); Langston also forced 23 turnovers and combined connect of 20-of-26 free throw attempts.

Langston (17-4) travels to take on Huston-Tillotson on Friday, Feb. 19. The Lady Lions are back home on Tuesday, Feb. 23 against the University of the Southwest.
