Maddy Cunningham scored 23 points and Ashleigh Spencer added 11, but that wasn't enough to power the Hannibal-LaGrange University women's basketball team to a victory in its quarterfinal game of the American Midweset Conference Tournament on Wednesday. The fifth-seeded Lady Trojans lost 59-54 to No. 4 Williams Baptist College in Walnut Ridge, Ark.

Cunningham was 7 of 17 from the field, including 3 of 8 from 3-point range.
