Tyra Conerly shoots a jump shot for the Lady Chargers against Coastal Alabama last Friday night.

And last Friday night made six.

The Southeastern Baptist College Lady Chargers won their six-straight basketball game Friday night, beating Coastal Alabama College, 74-59. The win capped the program’s last home game of the season, ahead of the upcoming NCCAA Division II Tournament.

"This was our girl's last home game of the season," said Lady Chargers head coach Jenone Bell. "We talked about that before the game. Their family members came out, and we had great support. That always helps. Our girls have been consistent for us the whole year."

Southeastern Baptist led by as many as 12 points in the opening period. Outscored 20-13 in the second, Coastal Alabama pulled within two points, 33-31, of the Lady Chargers at the break.

“Runs don’t hurt us,” said Bell. “Or they haven’t lately. We’ve learned to sustain them and come back from a run. I told our girls at the half that this is normal for us. We know how to sustain them, and we’re not going to fold.”

Coastal Alabama led much of the third period until a three-point basket by sophomore guard Deseree Moore and a layup by Mikayla Laster in the final minute, and a half put Southeastern Baptist up 52-51.

“We have some experienced guards,” said Bell. “They know what to do out there.”

All of the final 10 minutes belonged to Southeastern Baptist.

Tyra Conerly and Moore led Southeastern Baptist with 26 and 22 points, respectively.

“Those are our experienced [guards there],” said Bell. “They’re sophomores, so when I say experience, they are our experienced ones. They’ve been through the fire. Both have been consistent for us, especially Conerly. She’s been our mainstay throughout the season. They know what to do.”

Daebreon Wallace also finished in double-digit points with 12.
