LCU Lady Chaps cruise past Rogers State, 84-65

CLAREMORE — The Rogers State women’s basketball team dropped a 84-65 decision to Lubbock Christian on Saturday afternoon at the Claremore Expo.

The Chaps opened the game with a 16-4 advantage but after a 30 second timeout by RSU Head Coach Roxanne Long, the Hillcats settled in and used an 8-0 run to cut the deficit to four points.  With less than nine minutes to play in the opening half Mikaila Newton cut the Lady Chaps lead to one point with trey from the top of the arc.  LCU answered with a 10-2 run and controlled the rest of the half, taking a 42-31 advantage into the locker room at the break.

The Lady Chaps lead quickly grew to 16 points early in the second half as they controlled the frame. With five minutes to play RSU used a 12-2 run to cut the LCU lead to eight points but that was as close as the Hillcats would get to the lead.

Katy Harsen led the Cats in scoring with 21 points. Clarissa Cannon was the only other Hillcat to reach double digit scoring with 14 points.

LCU was close to flawless at the charity stripe, shooting 93.3 percent on the night, making 28 of their 30 attempts. The Lady Chaps converted 47.1 percent from the field and 57.1 percent from 3-point range.  Nicole Hampton led the Chaps with a double-double as she poured in 31 points while grabbing 11 rebounds.  The Chaps edged RSU on the boards 39-33.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
