Santhuff Breaks Records; Euts Fall Short of Victory

Eutectic guard Emi Santhuff broke two STLCOP records when the Eutectics hosted Logan Chiropractic College in the Pillbox on Tuesday, Jan. 21. The Euts started out flat, scoring only 17 points to Logan’s 59 in the first half. But, thanks to Santhuff’s 33 points, the scenario was reversed in the second half as the Euts outscored the Llamas by 24 points, improving their team field goal percentage from 15 to 59 percent. Despite the second-half rally, the Euts were unable to clinch the lead and lost 80-88 to the Llamas.

Santhuff’s total of 38 points in the game surpassed the previous STLCOP scoring record of 26 set in 2008 by Natalie Howard. Eight of Santhuff’s buckets were three-pointers, which smashed the STLCOP record of five three-pointers in a single game, co-held by several former STLCOP players. Santhuff also collected nine rebounds for the Euts during the game.

First-year guard Lauren Albertina had 10 points for the Euts, while second-year center Jaime Everett had nine rebounds during the game. 

The Eutectics are now 2- 9 for the season. Next up, they host conference foe Cincinnati Christian University in the Pillbox on Saturday, Jan. 25.

The St. Louis College of Pharmacy women’s basketball team claimed its second victory of the season on Monday, Dec. 2, beating the Lincoln Christian University Red Lions, 64-52, in the Pillbox in its last game before the month-long semester break. The Euts scored the first basket and never gave up the lead, heading to the locker rooms at the half up 34-20. In the second half, Lincoln Christian’s Tatiana Colclasure made things interesting by dropping in five three-pointers and scoring 21 points, ramping the Red Lions’ shooting percentage up from 21 percent in the first half to 41 percent in the second. But, the Eutectics responded well, improving their own shooting in the second-half and surprising the Red Lions with some key steals and buckets to keep them on top.

Second-year guard Emily Nickels led the Euts in scoring with 17 points, while second-year guard Emi Santhuff put in 14. Third-year center Heather Cohen pulled down nine rebounds, first-year guard Amy Wong had four steals, and second-year guard Paige Forshee dished out four assists for the STLCOP team. Forshee currently leads the KIAC in assists/turnover ratio, averaging 2.5 assists to 1.17 turnovers per game for a 2.14 ratio.

The win over Lincoln Christian improved STLCOP's record to 2-5 for the season. After some time off for finals and semester break, the Euts will be back in action on Jan. 17 when they travel to Kentucky to play conference games on three straight days. They return for the first home game of the new year on Jan. 21 versus Logan University College of Chiropractic at 7 p.m. in the Pillbox.

The Eutectic women’s basketball team claimed its first win of the season over Principia College on Tuesday, Nov. 19, in Elsah, Ill. It was the first time the Eutectics have defeated the Principia Panthers since 2007.

The Euts came out strong, shooting 52 percent and claiming a 37-31 lead in the first half. During the second half, the Euts quickly increased their lead to 14-points, but the Panthers then made a push to close the gap. The aggressive style of the Panthers led to fouls, however, and the Eutectics were able to sink nine free throws in the second half, which helped the Eutectics fend off the Panthers and earn the 70-65 win.

Second-year guards Emi Santhuff and Emily Nickels each had 18 points in the game, with Nickels going 4-for-4 from three-point land. First-year guard Amy Wong had 12 points and four steals for the Euts, while second-year guard Paige Forshee and second-year forward Jaime Everett crashed the boards for eight rebounds apiece.

On Saturday, Nov. 23, the Lady Eutectics hosted Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences for the first women’s battle for the Apothecary Cup. The Apothecary Cup tradition began in 2011 when the STLCOP men’s basketball team claimed the Cup with a victory over ACPHS in the Pillbox. In 2012, the Eutectic men travelled to Albany with the Cup, but returned empty-handed after a triple-overtime loss. The 2013-14 home for the Apothecary Cup was to be decided by the women’s teams on Saturday. The Panther 52-42 win over the Eutectics in the Pillbox determined the Cup would remain in New York until next fall, when the Lady Euts will travel to New York and get a chance at reclaiming it.

Santhuff led the Euts on Saturday with 19 points, and third-year Courtney Darrah pulled down six rebounds.

Next up, the Lady Euts will travel to Greenville College (Ill.) on Tuesday, Nov. 26, for a 6 p.m. game before taking some time off for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Eutectic women’s basketball team opened the 2013-14 season at home in the Pillbox against Benedictine University-Springfield on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Shooting 43 percent in the first half, the Euts hung tough with the Bulldogs, heading to the locker room at halftime down 33-28. An invigorated Bulldog team met a fatigued Eutectic team in the second half, however, as the Bulldogs pulled away, winning 74-51.

Second-year guard Emi Santhuff had a stellar game for the Eutectics, shooting 60 percent for 18 points, to go along with seven rebounds. First-year guard Amy Wong made her mark on her first collegiate basketball game with nine points and two rebounds for the Euts, while second-year forward Jaime Everett scored eight points.

The Eutectics will have a chance to avenge their loss when they travel to Springfield on Thursday, Nov. 14, to take on the Bulldogs on their home court.

Bolstered by a huge homecoming crowd at their final home game of the season, the Lady Euts earned the first women's basketball homecoming game win in STLCOP history on Friday, Feb. 15 by defeating the Logan Chiropractic College Lady Llamas in the Pillbox. Ahead 26-21 at halftime, the STLCOP team never looked back, beating the Llamas by 10 points, 59-49. First-year guard Emi Santhuff was the high scorer for the Lady Euts with 12 points and three assists, while first-year guard Amber Laurent had 11 points. First-year forward Jaime Everett and second-year center Heather Cohen crashed the boards for the Eutectics, together pulling
down 21 rebounds for the Lady Euts.

On Saturday, Feb. 15 the Lady Euts played their final game of the 2012-13 schedule in Paragould, Ark. versus the Crowley's Ridge College Pioneers. The STLCOP team was hoping for a repeat of the first part of the home-and-home series against the Pioneers in January, when the Lady Euts won 81-74. But a slow offensive first half prevented the STLCOP team from enjoying another victory over the Pioneers. Shooting only 10 percent from the field in the first half, the Lady Euts were down 36-14 at half time. The Eutectic team woke up in the second half, improving their shooting to 48 percent and scoring 42 points, but it was still not enough to catch up. The Pioneers defeated the Lady Euts 82-56. Santhuff again led the team with 19 points, while Cohen came close to a double-double with eight points and 10 rebounds for the Euts.

The Eutectic women's basketball team finished the 2012-13 season with a 3-19 record and in ninth place in the KIAC. With a complete roster of first- and second-year players, no seniors will be lost this year and the young team has a full two years to gain more collegiate basketball experience and grow together as a team. As a first-year, Santhuff has
made her mark, leading the team in points and steals, averaging 8.6 points per game and earning a 14th- and 15th-place ranking in the KIAC for three-point field goals per game (1.20) and steals per game (1.25). Fellow-first year Allie Farr, has found her way into second place position in the KIAC for blocks per game (1.53) and total blocks (29), while Cohen's blocking average of 0.46 per game puts her at 12th in the KIAC and helps the Lady Euts rank fourth as a team in that category.

 

Lady Euts Suffer Defeat to Brescia

In their final conference game of the season, the Eutectic women's basketball team suffered a loss to the Brescia University Bearcats, 96-45, Tuesday, Feb. 12 in the Pillbox. The Lady Euts struggled to find the basket in the first 10 minutes of the game, allowing the Bearcats to pull ahead by 20 points early on. Down 45-20 at halftime, the Lady Euts scored another 25 points in the second half, but it was not enough. A lack of rebounding (28 STLCOP rebounds to Brescia's 41) and poor free throw shooting (6-for-23) did not help the Lady Eutectic squad's cause.

First-year forward Jaime Everett led the Eutectic team, making 10-of-12 shots for 20 points to go along with six rebounds. First-year guard Emi Santhuff had 10 points and three assists for the Lady Euts.

The STLCOP women's team is now 2-18 with two games left on the schedule. This Friday, Feb. 15, the Lady Euts will host the Logan Chiropractic College Llamas for their homecoming game at 6 p.m., before heading to Paragould, Ark., on Saturday, Feb. 16, to play Crowley's Ridge College in their final game of the season.

The Eutectics could not find a weakness in the Eagles, who shot 53 percent and racked up 24 steals to only six turnovers for the game. The Eagles defeated the Eutectics 96-34. First-year guard Emi Santhuff led the Euts with nine points, six rebounds, two steals and two assists.

STLCOP Endures Second Loss to Principia

The Eutectic women's basketball team traveled across the Mississippi to Elsah, Ill., for the second game of a home-and-home series on Tuesday, Jan. 22. Unfortunately for the Euts, the result of Tuesday's away game was the same as the one played in the Pillbox against Principia in November - a loss. The Lady Euts scored 22 points to Principia's 37 by halftime, and eventually lost 66-43. First-year forward Jaime Everett was the high scorer for the Eutectic team with nine points and five rebounds. First-year Amber Laurent had eight points and three steals for STLCOP, while second-year Courtney Darrah led in rebounds with six.

The STLCOP women's basketball team played two more conference games on the road over the weekend in Berea, Ky. The first game was against conference leader Alice Lloyd College on Friday, Jan. 18. The Alice Lloyd Eagles are currently 7-2 in the conference and quickly demonstrated to the Eutectics why they are in first place by holding the Euts to nine points to their 41 in the first half. The game ended with the Eagles winning 87-26. First-year guard Amber Laurent led the Lady Euts with 11 points, while first-year forward Jaime Everett pulled down 10 rebounds to go along with four points.

The Euts would never recover from that deficit, and despite tripling their score in the second half, would lose 54-20 to the Celtics. First-year guard Emi Santhuff led the team this time with six points and three rebounds, while second-year center Heather Cohen had 10 rebounds for the Euts.

The Lady Euts will get two more conference road games in before classes begin on Tuesday, Jan. 22. This weekend, they head to Berea, Ky., to take on Alice Lloyd College (Pippa Passes, Ky.) on Friday, Jan. 18 and Berea College on Sat., Jan. 19.
