The Columbia College women's basketball team suffered its second straight loss of the season Saturday, falling 75-70 at Campbellsville (Ky.) University.

Campbellsville connected on their next possession and then drained two free throws after the Cougars, No. 18 in the NAIA, were called on an offensive foul. The four straight points sealed the victory for the Tigers (7-1).

Rice led Columbia College (7-2) with 17 points. Heather English added 16 points and six steals, and Julie Teeple posted a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
