Goodwell, OK - Stubborn? Maybe that’s what head
coach Jerry Olson and the Oklahoma Panhandle State women’s
basketball team are . . . they just refuse to lose. Trailing
Western New Mexico by as many as 13 points in the first half,
the Lady Aggies stormed back and picked up their sixth straight
victory winning 86-80 in Silver City, N.M. on Friday night.
OPSU took control of both ends of the court in the second
half as they raised their season record to 12-10 and their
Heartland Conference record to 6-2.
Brandi Lewis led all scorers with 21 points, and teammate
Taneisha Rogers added 14.
OPSU’s Nina Kuleff continues to establish herself as
perhaps the best inside player in the league. In Friday’s
victory, the six-foot junior from Phoenix, Ariz. had a 17-point,
The hard-working forward Michelle Kennedy hauled down nine
rebounds in just 20 minutes on the court. The dependable Diana
Garduno came off the bench to score a big 12 points in 15 minutes
of action, and she was three of three behind the 3-point arc.
