GOODWELL, OK—The Central Christian College of Kansas women's basketball team travelled down to Goodwell, Oklahoma on Thursday night for their game versus Oklahoma Panhandle State University. It was the second time these two teams have met this season, and unfortunately for the Lady Tigers, the result was almost identical as the first game. The Aggies would ride a strong second half performance to take the 85-64 victory over the Tigers.

The story of the game revolves around the third quarter. So far this season, the Tigers have struggled the most coming out of halftime, having been outscored 452-352 in the third quarter. Thursday night's game was no different. After playing the Aggies tough for the entirety of the first half, the Tigers found themselves down just two points at 33-31. But in that third quarter, the Tigers would be held to just eight points while the Aggies would score 20, pushing their lead to 14 points and totally swinging the momentum in their favor. The Aggies would come back out in the fourth quarter and take that lead up to 20 points with a 6-0 run to start the quarter, but the Tigers poured out all of their energy and started climbing back into the game. They would go on a 14-2 run to bring the lead back down to single-digits, but they would never get closer than eight points. The momentum would swing back in the favor of the Aggies once again, and they would close out the game with a 19-5 run to end the game at 85-64.

The Tigers continue to rely heavily on the three-point shot, as 47 of their 73 field goal attempts came from beyond the arc. For the game, the Tigers shot 19-for-73 (26 percent) from the field, including 11 for 47 (23.4 percent) from three-point land and 15-for-22 (68.2 percent) from the free throw line. They would also finish the game with 40 rebounds (11 offensive, 29 defensive), one block, six steals, 13 assists, and 12 turnovers. One major difference also came in the fouls territory, as the Tigers finished with 30 fouls while the Aggies only had 16 fouls in the game. The Aggies shot 27-for-61 (44.3 percent) from the floor, including 8-for-27 (29.6 percent) from three and 23-for-35 (65.7 percent) from the free throw line. They also collected 43 rebounds (five offensive, 38 defensive), one block, five steals, 16 assists, and 16 turnovers.

Holly Golden led the Tigers with 19 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Abbie Banks hit double-digit scoring for the first time since coming back from injury in just her third game back with 12 points. Addison Munsch for the Aggies led all scorers with 26 points and also collected eight rebounds and four assists.

The Tigers' road trip will continue further south, as they head to Wayland Baptist University for a 2 p.m. game on Saturday afternoon.
