COLUMBIA — The Stephens women's basketball team fell to 1-4 after losing 57-46 to St. Mary on Saturday at the Stephens Tipoff Tournament at Silverthorne Arena.

It was the second time this season the Stars fell against St. Mary after starting the season with a 66-57 road loss to the Spires on Nov. 11 to start the season. Stephens gained its first victory of the season on Friday with an 80-33 rout of St. Louis College of Pharmacy in the first round of the tournament.

“For the first time this season we struggled shooting the ball,” Stars coach Bill Bixon said in a release about Saturday's loss. “Even in our losses we shot the ball fairly well. Tonight was a night where we struggled to put the ball in the basket.”

Cara Leis led Stephens with 12 points and Danielle Caldwell had 11. The Stars shot 20 of 56 from the field including a 3 for 13 effort from 3-point range. The Stars also turned the ball over 27 times.

Stephens plays next on Monday at Bethel College in Newton, Kan.
