Women's Basketball Finishes Season

By Laura Nelson on 03/01/2013 Oklahoma City—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University women's basketball team closed out the season against the Oklahoma Christian University Lady Eagles Thursday night, hoping to get a win against a team they came close to beating at home earlier in the season.

OC came out fast to score five quick points, and with over two minutes gone on the clock, Whitley Coca got the Aggies on the board with two. Unfortunately, that three-point gap was the closest OPSU ever got to taking the lead as the women left the court at halftime down by 20. In the second half, the Lady Eagles watched the Aggies in the rear view mirror as they scored 41 more points compared to OPSU's 18 to take the 86-43 win. The Aggies' shooting percentage dropped from 31 in the first half to only 20 percent in the second half. OC had five players scoring in double digits with Katy O'Steen in the lead with 17. OC also grabbed 57 total rebounds as a team while OPSU only brought down 22. For OPSU, Sarah Johnson and Megan Taylor scored eight points each followed by Coca with six. The women end the season 4-22 overall and 4-11 in Heartland Conference play while OC, still a provisional member of the conference, upped their record to 15-11.

Head coach Charles Terry said, "This was a trying season, but very enjoyable with the young ladies I had the pleasure of coaching. They gave tremendous effort. Now we will assess our needs and recruit quality players who are also solid students to enhance the talent and experience of our returning students."
