The Panthers' lackluster shooting combined with a tough Skyhawks' defense led to the team's downfall Wednesday in Mariotti Gym, 60-43.
LC made only 21% of its shots compared to Point's 37%.
"We just had another tough, slow start tonight, and it finally caught up to us," Head Coach Jasen Jonus said. "Point came out playing tougher and with more heart from the jump. Not playing through contact, added with not making shots, made for a long night for us.
"Hopefully we learn from this loss and use it once we get to conference play."
The contest started with both squads struggling to put points on the board. Late in the first quarter the momentum shifted, and Point began to pull away.
With three minutes remaining the score stood at 8-6, Point. At the end of the period, the Skyhawks were up 18-8, and by the half it was 35-18.
Things were much the same in the third, and a small surge in the fourth wasn't enough to make up the deficit.
Amanda Mclendon brought down 10 rebounds, with Brunel grabbing six.
The team now heads into a break for finals. It returns to action next Wednesday in an exhibition game against Troy.
