OPSU’s Sarah Furgeson – An Uncommon Freshman
by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 12/14/05

Goodwell, OK - It is uncommon for a true freshman to step to the front at any level of four year college basketball. Sarah Furgeson, of the women’s team at Oklahoma Panhandle State University, is one who has done just that.

Furgeson joined the Lady Aggies this season, after an honored high school career in Sudan, Texas. She has started nine of ten games so far and has shown the ability to score, handle the ball, and play defense against more experienced players.

OPSU head coach Jerry Olson said, “Sarah has been a big surprise with her ability to make big plays and big free throws when the game is on the line. She continues to get better at being a floor general but has to be even more vocal.”

On the season, Furgeson is averaging 5.3 points per game and 3.5 rebounds per game. She also has 13 steals and her 29 assists total more than any other player in the Heartland Conference. “Sarah doesn’t play like a freshman most of the time,” Olson added.

Furgeson and the rest of the Lady Aggie team (6-4) will be in action on their home court this coming Sunday afternoon at 2:00. Missouri Southern will be in town and they are a good team with a 7-3 record who defeated one of their opponents 104-28 earlier this month. It should be a good game because this year’s Lady Aggies will not back down from anyone.
