**For Immediate Release**
Make It Four Straight for the Lady Aggies
by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 01/26/06

Goodwell, OK - A smothering defense did the job for the Oklahoma Panhandle State women’s basketball team in their 61-49 win over the University of the Incarnate Word here on Wednesday night. Nina Kuleff and Taneisha Rogers tossed in a combined 38 points to make it four straight wins for the Lady Aggies.

The visiting Cardinals led during the first few minutes of the game, but OPSU’s defensive strength wore them down. The Lady Aggies had a 34-24 lead at the intermission.

In the second half, the Cardinals briefly cut the Lady Aggies’ advantage to four points, but the home team remained in control and won 61-49.

Kuleff’s 21 points and Rogers’ 17 did most of the offensive damage for OPSU. Kuleff’s 12 rebounds tied a game high.

OPSU head coach Jerry Olson felt good about the Lady Aggies’ strong defensive effort and noted that his team paid close attention to the scouting report on the Cardinals. Olson also lauded the offensive performances of Kuleff and Rogers and complimented the defensive efforts of Michelle Kennedy and Brandi Lewis.

The Lady Aggies will continue their home stand on Friday at 6:00 p.m. against St. Mary’s.
