DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - The Hood College women's basketball dropped the final game of its trip to the Daytona Beach Shootout 78-50 to Centre (Ky.). 

Inside the Box Score

How it Happened

  • Three free throws by Savoy to open the second half cut into the deficit but Centre continued to build the lead from there.
