It was quite a senior night for Arnika Brown. Just seven days ago, the former Christian Couny Lady Colonel set a new Western Kentucky Lady Topper record with 24 rebounds. Last night, she topped her own mark with 25 rebounds in a 67-61 win over South Alabama.
Brown - one of four seniors playing her final game at Diddle Arena - also tied the women's arena record that was set by Robin Hendrix of Middle Tennessee on Jan. 22, 1981. Brown also scored 18 points.
The victory helped move the Lady Toppers one step closer to securing the third seed in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament as they improved to 11-4 in league play and 17-9 overall. South Alabama fell to 14-13 and 9-7 in the Sun Belt.
