Langston, Okla.—With a three-game road stint to start their season, the Panhandle State Women's Basketball team returns to Goodwell undefeated after taking their third win over Langston University 77-60 Saturday evening.

The Aggies opened with two wins at the Northern New Mexico College Classic last weekend, defeating Kansas Wesleyan 69-52 and University of the Southwest 65-46 in the tournament. Senior transfer Madison Dearmin and sophomore Addison Munsch led those efforts with a combined 26 and 22 points respectively. The duo proved effective leaders at Langston as well, putting up game-high numbers in scoring; Munsch shot at 58 percent, hauling in 19 points and Dearmin came through with 18 points. Junior Monti Regier recorded eleven points and led the Aggies beyond the arc connecting on three-of-five three-point shots. Munsch offered up four assists to tie for a game-high.

Panhandle State claimed all four periods against the Lions, and held a 35-29 lead going into halftime. After the break, the Aggies came out strong in the third holding their opponents to a mere nine points (19-9). Langston battled back in the fourth (23-22), but were left with a 17-point loss and a 1-2 record on the season.

Dearmin, who accumulated a combined 25 rebounds last week, once again led the Aggies' defensive front; she brought down a game-high of eight rebounds against the Lions. Hannah Faulks and Morgan Latta had four boards each, Faulks was credited with one block, and Latta and Munsch each got away with two steals in the game.

The Aggies outshot the Lions with a 44.2 percent field goal average to Langston's 35.8 percent shooting average. At the line, Panhandle State went 27-of-35 for a 77 percent free throw average. Latta gathered up nine points on twelve free throw attempts, and Dearmin went eight-of-nine at the line. Both teams were forces at the boards as Panhandle hauled down 34 rebounds and Langston totaled 32.

Aggie Head Coach Victor Esparza is thrilled with the team's 3-0 start to the season stating, "I'm so proud of this team for fighting every possession no matter what happened the play before. We played hard for all 40 minutes and just kept battling. Our defense is stepping up big time right now." He commended two of his top scorers adding, "Addison Munsch and Madison Dearmin have stepped up on the offensive end and have baskets in big-time spots."
