Johnson City, Tenn. -- College of Charleston's Wilma Simpson notched her fourth double-double of the season with 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Cougars in a 78-61 win against East Tennessee State at ETSU's Memorial Center.

The Lady Bucs shot 34.3 percent (24-70) from the field, while the Cougars made 48.2 percent (27-56). Another key statistic that sealed the win was the visitor's foul shooting, (19-22, 86.4 percent). It was the Cougars highest team free-throw percentage of the year.

The first half was an exciting back-and-forth affair that included six ties and four lead changes. The largest lead of the half was a 15-7 lead by the Cougars with 13:29 remaining. The Lady Bucs quickly stormed back and went on a 9-0 run to take a one point lead of their own at the 10:17 mark. The score was tied at the half, 29-29.

The beginning of the second half brought more of the same, with neither team opening up a lead larger than four points through the first ten minutes of the half. The score was tied at 50 after Lindsay Baber knocked down a jumper for College of Charleston at the 8:00 mark. The Cougars then caught fire and outscored the Lady Bucs 28-11 over the last eight minutes.

East Tennessee State's Erin Thurman scored a team-high 15 points, connecting on four treys in defeat. The Lady Bucs' Chris Forman(11) and Misty Copas (10) also scored in double digits.
