Women Lose Close One against Adams State

—By Laura Nelson on 11/18/2012 Alamosa, Colo.—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University women's basketball team played a wild final tournament game on Saturday at the Alamosa Bankers and Tourism Classic against the host team, Adams State.

The Grizzlies led the Aggies 9-0 points in the opening minutes until back-to-back OPSU shots put them on the scoreboard and they continued the scoring spree until they tied the Grizzlies at 11-all. The Aggies took control of the game, holding Adams scoreless while putting up 12 points in just over three minutes. A determined group of Grizzlies fought back, tying the score 30-30 with just under four minutes left in the half, and even though the lead changed hands four more times, Adams State led 45-41 going into halftime.

Exciting play continued in the second half as both teams battled to maintain a lead. With just over four minutes to the buzzer, Aggie Sharice Papaleo's layup tied the score at 66, but the Grizzlies quickly took over and won the game 81-74.

Three Aggies scored in the double digits—Whitley Coca with 23, Meagan Bell with 15, and Papaleo with 14. Coca handed out eight assists and Papaleo led her team with five rebounds.

The women play a pre-Thanksgiving game in Lawton, Okla. against Cameron University on Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. Live stats and video will be available at www.cameronaggies.com/.
