         EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. -- With three-pointers scoring from all angles, Kentucky Wesleyan downed Southern Illinois University Edwardsville 85-78 in women's college basketball Saturday at the Vadalabene Center.
         Latoshia Lawrence and Laura McClintic each hit five three-pointers for the Pantehrs, which improved to 12-3 overall and 5-2 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. Lauren Stewart and Whitney Espenlaub added a pair of three-pointers each in the rout.
         KWC's 14 three-pointers was the most ever by an SIUE opponent at the Vadalabene Center. The Panthers held the old record of 11 set in 2003.
         The Cougars, now 12-3 and 6-2 in the GLVC, fell for the first time at home this season despite 23 points from Amber Shelton. Alyse Morris added 19 off the bench. Julianne McMillen and Whitney Sykes followed with 15 and 13 points each.
         Lawrence was the game's high scorer with 25 points. McClintic recorded a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds, nearly making it a triple-double with seven assists.
         SIUE led 16-6 after five minutes of play but quickly watched the lead go away as the Panthers began their surge. KWC led 44-43 at halftime and pulled away in the second half, hitting 18 of 27 shots from the field for 66.7 percent.
         The Cougars now head to Saint Joseph's Thursday for a road contest against the Pumas. Game time is 5:30 p.m.
