Westminster College senior guard Kendahl Adams produced a game-high 27 points as the host Lady Blue Jays blistered Principia (Illinois) College in an 84-54 nonconference rampage Saturday.

Westminster — playing its final home game of the regular season — picked up its second victory in a row to improve to 18-5 overall. The Lady Blue Jays won both meetings with Principia (1-18).

Westminster forged a 25-14 lead after one quarter and outscored the Lady Panthers 17-10 in the second quarter to carry a 42-24 advantage into halftime. The Lady Blue Jays turned the contest into a rout by outscoring Principia 42-30 in the second half.

Adams rounded out an amazing double-double by collecting a game-high 20 rebounds to power Westminster to a decisive 59-27 advantage on the boards.

Senior forward Mirrakohl Johnson also logged an impressive double-double with 16 points and 15 rebounds for the Lady Blue Jays. Sophomore guard Kallee Dowler tallied 15 points as Westminster shot just 35 percent (32-of-91) from the field.

Nikki Matters supplied 21 points for the Lady Panthers, who shot 41 percent (21-of-51) as a team. Sophia Hathaway followed with 17 points and Anna Webster contributed 11.

The Lady Blue Jays return to St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play with a trip to first-place Greenville (Illinois) University at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Westminster will be looking to avenge an 83-62 loss to Greenville on Jan. 21 in Fulton.
