Teira Pendleton (Baltimore, Md./Baltimore Polytech) scored the 1,000th point of her collegiate career with the Lincoln University women's basketball team Wednesday night as the Lions had their seven game win streak snapped by nationally ranked Virginia Union University 68-51.
The loss drops the Lions record to 12-5 overall and 7-2 in Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association games. Virginia Union improves to 18-1 overall and 9-0 in league play.
Pendleton entered the game needing just 12 points to become the seventh player in the program's 47-year history to reach 1,000 career points. Teira's first basket of the game gave the Lions their first lead and she finished the first quarter by making two free throws, giving her nine points and the Lions a 17-16 lead.
