Campbellsville University's Lady Tigers made it 4-0 with a 96-82 road triumph at Union (Ky.) College on Thursday night in Barbourville.

Coach Ginger Colvin's club held double-digit leads in both halves before the Lady Dogs fought back within striking distance.

Jenna Hedges' long three-pointer just before intermission pushed Campbellsville's lead back to four (43-39) and the Lady Tigers put up a 53-point second half.

Freshman Courtney Danis paced CU with 22 points while junior Juliana Brown and sophomore Kristi Ensminger added 14 apiece and senior Priscila Alves 12.

Danis and Ensminger had eight rebounds each and Sara Sexton and Meagan Murphy had seven apiece as Campbellsville won the battle of the boards 50-29.

Alves dished out nine assists and had six steals for the Lady Tigers.

Campbellsville continues its six-game road swing with tilts at Brescia tomorrow (6:00) and vs. McKendree on Saturday (2:00) at Lindsey Wilson and next Monday (8:00) at Union (Tenn.) University.

After playing in the Bethel College Classic on Nov. 30-Dec. 1, the Lady Tigers return to the Powell Athletic Center to host the Citizens Bank Classic (Dec. 7-8) and the Holiday Inn Express Holiday Hoops (Dec. 18-19).
