Baton Rouge Lady Bears fall tonight, in their LCCAC conference opener, to the LSUE Lady Bengals by the final score of 84 to 75.

In the second quarter, the Lady Bears figured some things out on the offensive end and went on a 14 to 3 run to open up an 11 point lead at 32-21 with five minutes remaining. The Lady Bengals then turned the tables with a 23-10 run of their own to end the quarter with a two point halftime lead, 44-42.
In the second half, the Lady Bears struggled to get into their offensive flow, and was unable to secure the rebound leading to second chance points for the Lady Bengals. The Lady Bears would come within two points but it was not enough as they fall tonight by the final score of 84 to 75.
