(WVUE) -

Despite a pair of 20-point efforts from Hope Pawlowski and Cassidy Barrios, the Nicholls State University women’s basketball team dropped a hard-fought contest, against reining Southland champion Abilene Christian, 89-73 Wednesday night at Stopher Gym.

Pawlowski matched her career-high of 23 points by knocking down 7 of 11 from the field, two 3-pointers and converted all seven free throw attempts.

Tykeria Williams also scored in double figures, netting all 11 of her points in the first half as Nicholls (5-12, 2-4 SLC) headed into the break with a 39-38 lead over ACU (11-7, 5-1 SLC).

Sydney Shelstead and Lizzy Dimba both turned in double-doubles for ACU, while Suzzy finished two rebounds shy of one and added six assists.

Nicholls will continue its home stand Saturday, Jan. 21 against Lamar.
