The Lady Roadrunners opened in the McDonald's Classic with an 89-29 victory over Southeastern Community College at the Davis Multipurpose Center.

SFCC set the tone early holding Southeastern to only six points in the opening quarter. The Lady Roadrunners held Southeastern to single digits in three of the four quarters.

"Our primary focus in this game was our defense," said Collier. "We wanted to be very aggressive with our on-ball defense and be assignment correct in our ball screen defense. We also wanted to force tough catches. I felt like the girls did a nice job of that the entire game. I liked our energy on the defensive end that created some offense for us."

As a team, the Lady Roadrunners out rebounded Southeastern 62-31. Tanksley recorded another double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Sophomore forward Quincenia Jackson of Decatur, Illinois, added 16 points.

Freshman Jaida Shipp of Edmond, Oklahoma, had a double-double with 16 points, a team-high 14 rebounds and led in blocked shots with two. Youmans scored 15 points, made a team-high five assists and tied with Stocks for the team lead in steals with three.
