Goodwell, Okla.
- On Saturday night in Austin, Texas the Oklahoma Panhandle State women’s basketball team went up against a good Heartland Conference rival, the Hilltoppers of St. Edward’s University. The Hilltoppers got the win, 60-47.

The Hilltoppers came out as the hot team against the Lady Aggies, who were also victimized by their own turnovers and several close shots that just would not fall. At the half, a very physical St. Edward’s team held a 38-20 lead.

In the second half, the Lady Aggies played better and narrowed the lead to 48-36 with ten minutes remaining in the game. OPSU continued to relentlessly chip away at the Hilltoppers and cut the margin to 51-41 with four minutes left to play.

Pressing hard and working for victory all the way to the final buzzer, the Lady Aggies came up short in the end, 60-47.

Megan Hamilton was the high scorer for OPSU with a game high 15 points and Val Boothe - a hardworking senior - played very well at both ends of the court, scoring a career best 11 points, including a hard fought ten in the second half.

OPSU coach Jerry Olson was pleased with the perseverance of his squad, noting that even though they were down by as many as 20 points, they continued to play hard for the entire game and fought hard all the way.

The Lady Aggies (7-16) will be back on their home court on Thursday with a non-conference game against Fort Hays State. Tip-off is set for 5:30 p.m.
