Goodwell, Okla. - Though the Lincoln University women’s basketball team scored the first three points of the game, they were never ahead again as Oklahoma Panhandle State picked up a solid 67-52 win in Oscar Williams Fieldhouse on Friday. With the win, the Lady Aggies grabbed one of the four slots in the Heartland Conference tournament, which is set to begin Wednesday.

The Lady Aggie contest was the first game of a women’s/men’s doubleheader, a big part of the OPSU Winter Homecoming. Both games were free to the public thanks to the sponsorship of EPIC TOUCH.

Prior to tip-off, OPSU seniors Diana Garduno, Bridgett Boykin, Brandi Lewis, Michelle Kennedy and Laura Wilson were honored. Each was presented to the audience and their individual and collective contributions to the Lady Aggie program were detailed.

The Lady Aggies led by as many as 13 points in the opening half and went to the break ahead 30-22.

OPSU’s 6’0” center, Nina Kuleff, had a game high 18 points and 19 rebounds. The junior from Phoenix, Ariz. is in the top five in scoring in the conference as well as the leading defensive rebounder and is a contender for the Heartland Player of the Year.

Taneisha Rogers and Lewis also turned in great games for OPSU with 14 and 12 points, respectively. Freshman Sarah Furgeson scored five points and dished out a game high six assists. Garduno and Wilson each scored seven, and the hardworking Kennedy scored four.

In their final home appearance of the season, the Lady Aggie win upped their season record to 14-13, and their 7-5 conference record qualified them for the conference playoffs. The first round of the two-round playoffs will be on Wednesday. The Lady Aggies will head north to play Montana State-Billings at home. Game time is set for 5:30 p.m. MST (6:30 p.m. CST). The game will be carried live by KGYN via internet broadcast. Log on to and click on Athletics to find the link. Fans may also listen to the games on PTCI’s DITV channel 150.
