WALESKA, Ga. – The Union College women's basketball team had its postseason positioning take a hit Wednesday as it dropped a 76-60 decision at Reinhardt (Ga.) in Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC) play.

The loss puts the Bulldogs at 16-12 overall and 10-11 in conference. As of now, Union sits eighth in the standings, making a likely No. 8 seed for next week's AAC Tournament.

The AAC Tournament is set for Feb. 22-25 at the MeadowView Marriott Convention Center & Conference Resort in Kingsport, Tenn.

The Bulldogs started the game well, taking an 8-4 lead following a Reagan King (SR/Hindman, Ky.) 3-pointer with 5:54 left in the first. However, the Lady Eagles closed out the period on a 10-1 run in claiming a 14-9 lead going into the second.

From that point on, Union never held the lead again.

Reinhardt pushed the margin to 33-21 in the second, but a 5-0 spurt by Union made it a seven-point game with 29 seconds left in the half. Bria White scored as time expired, giving Reinhardt a 35-26 halftime lead.

The Lady Eagles pushed their lead to double-digits in the third and kept it there for much of the period. Yet, a quick rally pulled Union within seven later in the frame. A King bucket with 2:57 on the clock brought the Bulldogs within 49-42. Reinhardt, though, ended the quarter on a 7-2 run to take a 56-44 lead into the fourth.

Reinhardt outscored Union 20-16 in the fourth and held a double-digit lead for much of it as it locked up the 76-60 victory.

Maci Spence (SR/Mt. Sterling, Ky. ) was the lone Bulldog to score in double figures, finishing with 12 points.

White led Reinhardt (26-3 overall, 18-3 AAC) with 25 points with Erike Woodfin following with 15. Danielle Pray and Jada Hubbard each chipped in 11 points, while Rebecca Cheeks scored 10.

Up Next

Union will close out the regular season on Saturday when it hosts Point (Ga.) for a 4 p.m. tip. Prior to the game, the Bulldogs will honor the seniors on the team for their years of service.
