Women Drop Game to Ft. Hays

—By Laura Nelson on 12/16/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—The Ft. Hays State University women's basketball team (9-0) came to town ranked 11th in the nation by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association and maintained their perfect start to the season, winning 87-54 over the Aggies (3-7).

The Tigers put up 11 points at the beginning of the game while holding the Aggies scoreless when Coca broke the spell with 3-pointer. Coca struck again from downtown a minute later, putting OPSU only down by seven, but it turned out to be the closest the home team would get. FHSU was ahead by 20 at the half, 44-22.

Aggie scoring improved in half two, especially from beyond the arc. Two-point goal percentages went from 32 to nearly 38 percent and 3-pointers from 20 to 43 percent, but the Aggies could not answer the 44 points the Tigers scored inside compared to their 12.

Katelyn Edwards and Kate Lehman earned double doubles for the Tigers, with Edwards leading all scorers with 18 points and a total of 12 rebounds while Lehman put up 16 and grabbed 13 rebounds. OPSU's Whitley Coca led the Aggie scoring with 16 followed by Da'Veonna Munson with 11. Coca also had 8 rebounds plus dished out 6 assists and Sharice Papaleo pulled down 7 rebounds.

The women are off for the holiday until they play West Texas A&M on Dec. 29 at 4 p.m. in Canyon.
