After McMurry scored a quick six points at the beginning, OPSU got on the board with a jump shot from Whitley Coca and then came within one of the lead when Meagan Bell netted a three followed by another Coca jumper. The Aggies kept the Lady War Hawk lead in the single digits until eleven minutes into the game when McMurry pulled away, scoring 21 points and holding OPSU to only 10. At half time, the visitors lead 45-21. McMurry hit 68 percent from the field in the first half while the Aggies shot 28 percent.

OPSU's field goal percentage improved to over 58 in the second half, but it was not enough to overcome the point deficit and McMurry beat OPSU 81-67. For the game, Coca led all scorers with 17 plus she brought down three rebounds and dished out three assists. Da'Veonna Munson was 7-10 at the free throw line and scored 12 points followed by Sarah Johnson with 11, who was 3-4 from beyond the arc. Four of the Lady War Hawks scored in double digits and the team brought down 34 rebounds, twice as many as the Aggies. McMurry now stands at 10-13 overall and OPSU is 4-20 and 1-10 in conference play.

The women play their final home game Saturday, Feb. 23 against the St. Edward's University Hilltoppers at 2 p.m. Seniors Coca, Munson and Megan Taylor will be honored just prior to the start of the game.
