(New Orleans, La.)  After sweeping the season series against Edward Waters College, the Lady Bleu Devils trailed by one point at the half and shot a dismal season-low 25 percent before getting eliminated in the first round of the 2015 GCAC Women's Basketball Tournament by the score of 61-43at the Battlefield in Dent Hall.

Dillard (16-13, 8-6 GCAC) was led by junior Alena Evans (JR/Las Vegas, NV) who was the lone Lady Bleu Devil to score in double figures with 11 points on 4-of-14 shooting while senior Ciara Morgan (SR/Springfield, IL) finished with nine points, seven boards, three steals, two assists and two blocks in her final game as a Lady Bleu Devil.

"We picked a bad night to go cold from the field," said Dillard head coach Norbert Rome.  "I'm proud of our seniors; I think they gave us a good foundation to build upon."

Edward Waters hit 28-of-34 free throws in the second half as Dillard hit 8-of-14 free throws in the half.  EWC's Kyeshia Dawkins finished with a game-high 24 points and hit 14-of-18 from the line while her teammate Brittany Rowell finished with 17 points and hit 11-of-11 free throws.

Dillard ends the season on a three-game losing streak.  Their last victory ironically came against Edward Waters on February 23.
