There would be no repeat for Truett-McConnell.
Freshman guard Hayley Wyrick scored a game-high 23 points as Milligan’s Lady Buffs (11-5, 15-9) avenged an earlier loss to the Bears (6-9, 8-11) on Wednesday at Steve Lacy Fieldhouse.
Winning their second straight Appalachian Athletic Conference contest, the Buffs prevailed 61-44.
The Lady Bears led early 8-4, but a nine-point Buffs run gave Milligan a lead it never relinquished. The run was opened with a trey from Chelsey Weddle and followed by a three-ball from Wyrick. A third triple, which came from freshman guard Lindsee Price, gave the Buffs a 13-8 lead.
