Eagles Take Win

OPSU came out of the gate careless and OC took an early 11-0 advantage. The Aggies corrected their sloppy play and climbed back into it, but missed opportunities put OPSU behind 32-26 at half. The home team regrouped and started the second half much better than the first and fought back to within two points with less than four minutes left to play in the ball game. Unfortunately, OC's point guard Krista Stevens found her groove and hit two deep threes to put the Eagles up eight and the Aggies never closed that gap. They tied the Eagles in points in the second half with 30 each, but the final score was OC 62, OPSU 56. OC improves their overall record to 4-3 and OPSU drops to 2-6.

Senior Whitley Coca was the leading scorer for the Aggies with 17 points and she also dished out 7 assists and pulled down 5 rebounds and collected 3 steals. Sharice Papaleo had a big game for the Aggies as she earned a double double with 10 points and 12 rebounds. The Aggies hurt themselves with 31 turnovers and failing to capitalize on the 29 Eagle turnovers. OPSU shot 30.4% from the field and an even bigger stat was their 47.1% from the foul line, both mistakes that need to be corrected before the next game. The women take a two week break from play, and their next contest is scheduled for Dec. 14 at home against Central Christian College.
