OKLAHOMA CITY, OK—The Central Christian College of Kansas women's basketball team traveled to Oklahoma City University on Thursday night to take on the No.12 Stars. The Stars, who currently sit in second place in Sooner Athletic Conference standings, were too much for the Lady Tigers to handle, as they fell 33-87.
Not much went right for the Tigers, as the powerhouse Stars were in control from the tipoff, controlling the game on both ends of the court. The Tigers were held to just 12-of-68 (17.6 percent) shooting on the night, going 7-for-39 (17.9 percent) from three point territory and 2-for-4 (50 percent) from the free throw line. The third quarter was the only period in which the Tigers reached double-digit scoring, with just 10 points. On the other hand, the Stars shot well from the field, going 31-for-68 (45.6 percent) on the night, including 9-for-30 (30percent) from three and 16-for-19 (84.2 percent) from the free throw line. OCU also outrebounded the Tigers 59-37, and won the turnover battle 18-13.
Individually, Piper Kalthoff was the lone Tiger to reach double-digit points, with 11 points and 4 rebounds. For the Stars, their top three scorers all came off the bench, with Mallory Lockhart leading the way with 20 points, including six three-pointers.
The Tigers will be back home on Saturday afternoon, as they host Southwestern Christian University. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m..
