The Alice Lloyd Lady Eagles shot a frigid 31% from the floor and fell to the visiting Pikeville Lady Bears 78-53 last night.
In the first half, the game remained tight as ALC sophomore Ariel Nickell tossed in 12 early points. At intermission, Pikeville had eased out to a 34-28 lead.
For ALC (0-3), Nickell led the way with a game–high 24 points and 6 rebounds. Freshman Taylor Hott displayed a ton of hustle, accumulating 13 points and 5 rebounds.
