Aggie Women Bested by Falcons

—By Laura Nelson on 01/13/2013 Odessa, Texas—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University women's basketball team traveled to Odessa to play a Heartland Conference game on Saturday against the University of Texas of the Permian Basin and returned home with a 48-59 loss.

Aggie shooting in the first half was not just cold; it was at the freezing mark as the women shot only 11.5 percent in the two-point range and 20 percent from outside. At halftime, UTPB led OPSU by 17.

The second half began much the same, but the Aggies started fighting back and cut the Falcon lead to nine with 5:41 left to play. Aggie scoring improved enormously as the women went 10-23 in the two-point range and 4-8 for treys, but it was not enough to overcome the Falcon defense. OPSU's Rosa Quinonez hit every shot she put up, going 3-3 inside, 3-3 outside, and 2-2 at the free throw line to lead the Aggie scoring with 11 points. Meagan Bell put in nine and Whitley Coca added eight points and pullded down six rebounds.

The Falcons had three players in double digits, led by Teisha King with 26. UTPB improves their overall season record to 8-5 and 2-1 HC. OPSU moves to 3-11 overall and 0-3 HC.

Head coach Charles Terry said, "We shot the ball horribly in the first half, but I'm very proud that we made runs to get back in the game. We are getting better and that gives us a chance to move up in the Conference standings."

Newman University comes to Goodwell Thursday, Jan. 17 for a conference match. The women's game begins at 5:30 p.m. with the men's game following. Both games will be sponsored by Wirtz Lumber and Stanfield Printing.

Admission to OPSU basketball games is $5 for adults, $2 for children 12 and under and senior citizens aged 65 and above. Children under five and OPSU students are admitted free. OPSU faculty and staff and immediate family will also be admitted free with an ID.
