The Wayland Baptist Flying Queens suffered their fourth consecutive loss as they stumbled at 15th ranked Southern Nazarene University on Saturday, Feb. 2, 91-66.
The game was back and forth until the Crimson Storm went on an 18-6 run with 5:27 remaining in the first half giving them a 46-34 halftime advantage.
From there, Southern Nazarene never looked back.
The Crimson Storm were red hot from beyond the three point stripe shooting 12-19. Overall, they shot 54 percent from the field.
The Flying Queens shot 40 points from the field, but not good enough to keep up with the Crimson Storm on this particular day. The Queens were only 5-18 from three point range.
The Queens were led in scoring by freshman Megan Coats who contributed 16 points and shot an efficient 6 out of 12. She is also the Queens leading scorer over the entire season averaging 15 points per game.
The Queens are now 10-12 on the season and have a 5-9 mark in conference play.
SNU was the third ranked opponent that Wayland has played during their current four-game losing skid. The losing streak comes amidst a year in which the Queens have shown steady improvement, particularly considering that they are without last year’s leading scorer Edite Kresa due to an injury.
