The 13th-ranked Iowa Central women fought off a pesky Southeastern team on Saturday.

The Tritons (21-4 overall, 9-3 ICCAC) picked up a 103-90 victory inside Hodges Fieldhouse. It was the fourth time this season the Tritons reached the century mark.

Four Tritons reached double figures. St. Edmond graduate Lydia Harvey had a team high 26 points. Miliakere Koyamainavure had 25 points. Katie Dentlinger had 19 points and nine rebounds. Babaye Oja also reached double figures with 17 points.

Harvey was 7-for-7 from the line and Koyamainavure was 9 of 11.

"Offense wasn't our problem,'' said Iowa Central head coach Craig Carlson. "They were bound and determined to guard us at the three-point line and it was easy for us going to the basket.

"I'm really happy with our four starters that reached double figures."
