There have been plenty of firsts in 40-plus years of Northwestern State women’s basketball history.

A pair of Lady Demons added another Thursday night.

Beatrice Attura and Cheyenne Brown each had 30 points in an 89-71 victory against Southeastern Louisiana in Prather Coliseum, marking the first time in program history two Lady Demons scored at least 30 points in the same game.

“It’s great — not only from a history standpoint but that we have that balance with somebody scoring on the inside and on the outside,” said NSU coach Jordan Dupuy. “You’ve got to get their teammates credit for getting them the ball and getting them open.”

The Lady Demons wrap up their two-game homestead Saturday against defending SLC champion Abilene Christian. Tipoff for NSU’s annual Play 4 Kay game, with proceeds benefiting the Kay Yow Foundation, is set for 1 p.m.
