Women's Basketball Wins Season Opener

—By Laura Nelson on 11/09/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—Oklahoma Panhandle State University's women's basketball team won their home opener on Friday night against the Eastern New Mexico University Zias.

The Aggies took an early 5-4 lead and dominated the scoring in the first half and went into the break ahead 34-20. In fact, the women made 50 percent of their attempted goals in period one, a respectable percentage for the first regular season game. A determined ENMU team came out in the second half and scored 14 points in the first nine minutes while holding the Aggies to only six. They eventually got within two points of the lead, but the Aggies held them off to get the 55-49 win.

First head women's coach Charles Terry said, "The women played hard and while I'm pleased with their effort and happy with a win, the game was ugly. They (ENMU) forced us to get out of our sets, but I like this team and believe they will respond well to the adjustments we need to make."

Whitley Coca led all scorers with 17 points. She also led with seven assists and pulled down eight rebounds. Sarah Johnson and Da'Veonna Munson each added seven points and Kaylee Marion had six. As a team, the women hit 15 of their 16 charity shots.

Both Aggie basketball teams play again Saturday against Barclay College. The women tip off at 5:30 p.m. with the men's game following at about 7:30.
