Women Fall Short in Weatherford

—By Laura Nelson on 11/14/2012 Weatherford, Okla.—Following two decisive victories at home last week, Oklahoma Panhandle State University's women's basketball team traveled to Weatherford on Tuesday to play Southwestern Oklahoma State University and lost 77-60.

Shayla Mathis scored the first bucket of the game with a layup and even though the Aggies did not lead again, they stayed with the Bulldogs and were behind only 30-22 at halftime. Two quick Bulldog threes to begin the second half put the Aggies behind by 14, but they were never able to get any closer than 11 points of tying the game. Assistant coach Marcus Hicks said he was pleased with their effort as the team played hard the entire 40 minutes.

Sarah Johnson led the Aggies with 14 points while Sharice Papaleo had 12 and also pulled down nine rebounds.

The team will compete in a tournament hosted by Adams State in Alamosa, Colo. and face the Univ. of Colo.-Colorado Springs at 3 p.m. MST on Friday. Saturday, they play the host team at 6 p.m. MST.
