Goodwell, OK- Oklahoma Panhandle
State women’s basketball
coach Jerry Olson was to the point in his comments after the
Lady Aggies lost at New Mexico Highlands (54-51) on Tuesday
night. “They wanted to win more than we did,” the
veteran coach said.
The Lady Aggies appeared to have things well in hand as they
jumped out to a 27-14 lead at half-time. However, a furious
NMH second half rally put the Lady Aggies behind (48-46) with
just over three minutes left in the game.
NMH had a 52-51 lead with just over a minute left, and though
both teams had a chance for a final minute victory, NMH pulled
out the win.
Olson added that he felt the OPSU effort down the stretch
Brandi Lewis and Michelle Kennedy each had 11 points for the
Lady Aggies, and Taneisha Rogers had ten. Kennedy also had
OPSU will be back on their home court on Saturday evening
against Newman. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m.
