Missouri Western women’s basketball notched their ninth-straight win after defeating Lincoln 65-54 on their home floor Thursday night.

The Griffons controlled the game from start to finish as they didn’t allow the Blue Tigers to hold a lead at any point, but Lincoln would still continue to fight back. The Blue Tigers would claw their way back as they were down 19 points midway through the third quarter, but cut the deficit to 10 points at 6:03 in the fourth quarter due to a 10-2 run to start the fourth.
