The Aggies struggled to get shots to fall, putting up only 22 percent from the field in half one while the Mustangs shot 52 percent, leading 45-24 at the break. OPSU's shooting improved in the second half and even though the women battled the whole game, the Mustangs improved their record to 4-0 in the young season and the Aggies fell to 2-5.

Whitley Coca put in 23 points, the leading scorer for both teams and the only Aggie in double digits. Midwestern's Kirsti Degelia had 17 and teammates Lisa Hampton and Andrea Carter had 12 and 11, respectively. OPSU's Shayla Mathis and Sharice Papleo each had six rebounds.

The women take on Oklahoma Christian University, currently 3-2 overall, this Thursday at home at 5:30 p.m.
