OPSU and TAMI battled back and forth in the first 14 minutes of the game as the lead switched hands ten times. With 6:32 left in the first half, the Aggies enjoyed a one point lead and what turned out to be their last of the game. With 10 points from Amanda Mangan, the Dustdevils scored 20 more to end the half with a 39-28 lead.

Five minutes into the second half, OPSU's Sarah Johnson scored six points in about a minute and a half and with Kaylee Marion adding three more, the Aggies were back in the game, trailing by only four points. OPSU continued to fight, but with four minutes left in the game, TAMI increased their nine point lead to 17 by the time the final buzzer sounded.

Mangan scored a game high 27 points and also pulled down nine rebounds and her teammate Malika Jackson earned a double double with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Johnson led the Aggie scoring with 14 followed by Da'Veonna Munson with 10, Kaylee Marion with eight, and Sharice Papaleo and Meagan Bell, both with seven. Assistant coach Marcus Hicks said, "The women always work hard and rarely make big errors, but they make mental mistakes which leads to the team not doing what it is supposed to do. They have improved enormously since the first of the season and we will continue to improve their mental toughness."

The Aggies continue conference play at home on Saturday against the St. Mary's Lady Rattlers, a team with a 14-5 overall record and 6-1 in Heartland Conference play. The game gets underway at 2 p.m. with the men's game following. Live stats and live audio will be available on the athletics page at www.opsu.edu.
