Lady ‘Cats thriving under Long

Froese leads RSU into SAC battle with OBU

CLAREMORE — The Rogers State University women’s basketball team carries a two-game winning streak into Thursday’s Sooner Athletic Conference home game against the Oklahoma Baptist University Lady Bison.

With a 12-4 overall mark and a 2-0 record in the SAC, the Lady ‘Cats are thriving under first-year head coach Roxanne Long.

The former Oklahoma Sooner point guard — who played for Sherri Coale in the mid-1990s — has raised the level of intensity with her style of basketball inside the Claremore Expo Center.

Through 16 games, the Lady ‘Cats are averaging 72.3 points per game and holding opponents to 62.9.

Last week, the Lady ‘Cats held on to beat Science & Arts of Oklahoma, 66-64 and then raced past Mid-America Christian, 79-70.

Senior power forward Logan Froese, of Claremore, joined the 1,000-point club with an 18-point performance in the Lady ‘Cats win over MACU.

Froese ranks second on the team in scoring this year with 175 total points (10.9 per game).

In 15 starts, Froese has converted 66-of-115 field goals (.574) and 43-of-55 free throws (.782).

She also leads the team in rebounding with 110 for an average of 6.9 per game.

The key to the Lady ‘Cats come-from-behind win over Science & Arts was credited to Ariani Silva’s game-winning three-pointer.

Silva has only made two starts this season, but she’s provided the Lady ‘Cats with a strong scoring threat off the bench.

Silva ranks second on the team in three-point shooting with 23-of-58 treys for a .397 percentage.

She’s also converted 40-of-98 field goals (.408) and 23-of-27 free throws (.852).

OBU (7-6 overall, 0-2 SAC) enters Thursday’s match-up with back-to-back conference losses to No. 1-ranked Lubbock Christian University, 87-60, and Wayland Baptist University, 74-45.

Charity Fowler leads the Lady Bison in scoring with 169 points (13.1 per game). She has converted 57-of-158 field goals, 22-of-77 treys and 33-of-61 free throws in 13 games.
