McKenzie, Tenn. - Shawnee State women's basketball rebounded with a win on Saturday, beating Blue Mountain (Miss.) to finish the MSC/SSAC Challenge.

The Bears would take the lead early and never trail. SSU would push out to an 11-point lead in the first quarter thanks to a balanced attack. Shania Massie would hit a layup off a turnover to end the first to put Shawnee State up 17-6 after one.

The second quarter would again be all Shawnee State as the Bears would push the lead out even further. Lydia Poe would go 4-4 from the field, scoring nine points in the quarter, with Massie adding five and Madison Ridout and Leah Wingeier each getting four. Wingeier's final points of the half would put Shawnee State up 44-18 at halftime.

The Bears would coast the rest of the way. Blue Mountain would outscore Shawnee State in the third quarter, cutting the lead to 19, but SSU would keep control of the game, reasserting their 20 point lead in the fourth to win 85-65.

Lydia Poe would score 22 points and eight rebounds to lead Shawnee State. Shania Massie would chip in with a double-double, the first of her career, scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Madison Ridout also had 14 points, with Hannah Miller adding 10.

Matavia Cox, who had 21 points, led Blue Mountain in the loss. Emilee Murr added 16 for the Toppers.

The win improves Shawnee State's record to 5-1. Blue Mountain falls to 0-5 on the year.

Shawnee State returns to action on Friday, November 17 when they take on Taylor (Ind.) to open the Zwiefel/Pritchett Classic at Asbury University. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m.
