ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Mike Bradbury’s Lobo women’s basketball team pounded Houston Baptist on Tuesday night 76-58. The game was never in doubt, as the Lobos raced out to a 16-0 advantage and never looked back.

“This was a positive outcome,” said Bradbury. “I thought we played really hard. First-quarter got off to a great start. First half we really competed and second half I thought we were able to get some kids in the game that needed to play.”

It was 43-16 at halftime. Four Lobos scored in double figures with Shaiquel McGruder leading the way with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

The way we played Saturday, that wasn’t us and we knew that,” said McGruder. “Coming back, going to practice, and doing all of that, we were prepared, we were ready and we knew like, we had to win.”

Jaedyn De La Cerda scored 17 points while Antonia Anderson and La Tora Duff finished with 11 points each. Timia Jefferson led the Huskies in scoring with 15 points while Marilyn Nzoiwu had a double-double of 13 points and 13 rebounds.
