CHICKASHA, OK—The Central Christian College of Kansas women's basketball team continued their final stretch of road games this weekend, as they headed down to Oklahoma Saturday afternoon to take on the (RV) University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. The Drovers would put the clamps on the Lady Tigers who fall 75-49, taking them to 2-22 (1-16 SAC) on the year.
Both teams struggled to get the ball in the basket to start the game, as they were a combined 0-14 from three-point land in the opening quarter. Kassidy Forsberg single-handedly kept the Tigers in the game, scoring eight of the Tigers' 10 first quarter points, while holding the Drovers to just 13 points. Unfortunately, the Drovers would get going on offense, while the Tigers would be stuck in a funk. For the game, the Tigers shot just 16-for-71 (22.5 percent) from the floor, going 3-for-28 (10.7 percent) from three-point territory and 14-for-19 (73.7 percent) from the free throw line. On the other side, the Drovers finished the night 27-for-64 (42.2 percent) from the floor, including 5-for-18 (27.8 percent) from three and 16-for-24 (66.7 percent) from the free throw line.
Holly Golden led the Tigers with 18 points and six rebounds, and was joined in double figures by Tania Lowe with 14 and Kassidy Forsberg with 10. Vivian Holcomb led all scorers for USAO, with 19 points as well as 15 rebounds and four assists.
The Tigers will have one final road game next week, as they head back to Oklahoma to take on Langston University. That game will be on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
