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.
