It was Rally from behind night at Anderson University. The Lady Trojans fell behind early and at half they were losing by four points. But in the second period they outscored Limestone 40-22 in a rally from behind win over the Saints 70-56.

A milestone was reached by senior Latrice Thomas tonight. About midway through the game she scored her 1,000 career point, making her only the sixth Lady Trojan in A.U. history to achieve that mark.

The girl’s team still has a solid lock on conference first place with a three game lead.

Yesterday the latest NCAA division II East Region Poll came out showing them at number 6. And just this morning the newest USA Today/ESPN National Poll had the Lady Trojans moving up from 20th to 17 in the Nation. A.U. 19 – 2 overall, have won 11 straight, and were the highest ranked team in the southeast.

Rally from behind number two tonight was the Boys. After falling as far as 22 points behind midway in the second half, the guys turned it on. In what the media is already calling "The Miracle Rally" they refused to fold. Finally with just six seconds left on the clock, Nayte Russell scored on a hard driving layup to pull ahead. Then Brandon Young cut off the Limestone inbound pass to seal the victory 75-73.
