The Lady Cougars didn’t get within four points in the fourth quarter as B-U connected on 6-of-8 from the free-throw line.

Bennett also had nine rebounds, seven steals and four assists, Audrey Gaudet added six points, seven rebounds and six steals and McKinley Gaudet tallied four steals.

Brynne Williams scored 18 points for Lincoln (8-7, 6-4 Big 10).

On Thursday, for Lady Buccaneer alumni night, B-U held Philip Barbour to just two points in the second quarter en route to a 62-45 Big 10 victory.
