The University of North Alabama women's basketball team could not overcome a season-high turnovers in a 75-62 loss at Christian Brothers Saturday afternoon. The Lions leaves UNA with an 8-6 overall record and 3-5 mark in Gulf South Conference play.

Four players reached double figures in scoring for CBU, which is now also 8-6 on the year, but owns an even 4-4 GSC record. Samantha Reeves led the Buccaneers with 18 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the floor. As a team, Christian Brothers hit 48 percent of its shots.

After UNA scored the first six points of the game, the Bucs used a 13-4 run to grab their first lead. A three-pointer by Emily Reeves made the score 13-10 with 13:44 remaining in the first half. The Lions never led again.

CBU took a 37-33 lead into the break and outscored the visitors 38-29 over the final 20 minutes of play.

In the second half, North Alabama would get on closer than two points. A jumper by Dakota Doss made the score 37-35 in the opening minutes of the period. The Bucs, however, responded with an 11-1 run as UNA went nearly five minutes without a basket from the floor.

The Lions trailed 66-58 at the 3:55 mark before Christian Brothers got a three-pointer and hit six straight free throws down the stretch to seal the victory.

For the game, CBU converted the 23 UNA turnovers into 27 points. The Lions shot 36.2 percent from the floor and was 22-of-24 from the free throw line.

Nichelle Fillmore scored 18 points and pulled down nine rebounds to lead UNA. Delisa Madry added a pair of three-point baskets and finished with 10 points for the Lions.

UNA will host West Alabama on Thursday to begin a five-game GSC homestand. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. at Flowers Hall
