CARLINVILLE, Ill. — Senior guard Kendal Miller delivered a game-high 21 points in a reserve role and the Lady Blue Jays stretched their SLIAC winning streak to four games by demolishing the Lady Beavers on Saturday.

Westminster College — which completed a season sweep of Blackburn College — raised its season record to 10-11 and improved to 9-5 in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The Lady Beavers dropped to 5-15 overall and 3-11 in the SLIAC.

The Lady Blue Jays bolted to a 22-8 lead after one quarter and outscored Blackburn 24-10 in the second quarter to widen its commanding advantage to 46-18 at halftime. Westminster then outscored the Lady Beavers 17-9 in the third quarter to make it 63-27.

Miller knocked down 8-of-11 shots — including 5-of-8 from 3-point range — as the Lady Blue Jays shot just 37 percent (27-of-74) overall. Sophomore guard Corrie Reece also tallied 15 points.

Senior forward Mikalyn Callahan collected a game-high 14 rebounds as Westminster was outrebounded 55-50.

Jenna Dudra logged 11 points as the only player to make it into double figures for Blackburn, which shot a dreadful 19 percent (13-of-69) as a team.

The Lady Blue Jays return home for a SLIAC game against Webster University at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Westminster lost to Webster 86-66 on Jan. 11 in St. Louis.
