SAC WOMEN'S BB: OBU pulls away from MACU, 64-42

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Baptist University Bison pulled away in the second half to defeat the Mid-America Christian University Evangels 64-42 in a Sooner Athletic Conference matchup Thursday evening (Feb. 14) inside the Gaulke Activity Center.

After a scoreless first half, Kourtni Williams scored eight points in the first three minutes to help the Lady Evangels shave what was once a 12-point deficit down to 35-29.

But consecutive threes by Janell Beacham and Charity Fowler put the Lady Bison back in control and Zbeyda Aremi scored 10 straight points to cap a 22-6 spurt that spanned 16 minutes to balloon the advantage to 57-35.

The Lady Evangels took an early 7-5 lead on a pair of free throws by Kelsie Dutton, but the Lady Bison tightened things up defensively and held MACU without a field goal over the next eight minutes.

OBU outscored the Lady Evangels 16-2 over that span, keyed by six points from Jalissa Council.

Emilie Schirmer then snapped the run with two free throws and buckets by Parris Price and a score from Schirmer brought the Lady Evangels to within 21-15 at the 4:57 mark of the opening half.

A three by Allie Brandenburg and another score from Council stretched the lead back to 11 and OBU took a 28-19 lead into the locker room.

Williams kept her double-figure scoring streak alive with 14 points and April Williams led the Lady Evangels with six rebounds.  Price scored eight points with three assists.

Aremi erupted in the second half for 16 points and five blocks to finish with a game-high 19.  Fowler scored 11 with a game-high 10 boards and Council added 10.

OBU out-rebounded the Lady Evangels 50-39 overall and limited MACU to only an 18.3 percent (11-of-60) shooting clip.
