Froese, Silva dominate in Lady 'Cats win over OBU

SHAWNEE — The Rogers State women’s basketball team completed the series sweep over Sooner Athletic Conference foe Oklahoma Baptist with a 70-55 win at Noble Complex on Saturday afternoon.

Seniors Logan Froese and Ariani Silva led the Hillcats to victory. Froese, a Claremore native, tied her career-high in scoring with 21 points and added a season-high 12 rebounds. Silva added a season-high 19 points.

The teams traded buckets to start the game but the Hillcats used a 10-2 run to build a 31-19 cushion with less than eight minutes to play in the half. The Cats held onto the double digit lead until the final two minutes of the stanza where the Lady Bison used a 6-0 spurt to cut the deficit to 42-35 at intermission.

Kelby Fritz opened the second frame with a trey from the left elbow to push the RSU lead back to 10 points. OBU cut the deficit to four points with 15 minutes to play. The Hillcats answered with a 6-0 run and the Cats never looked back. RSU led by as many as 18 points in the second half. The Hillcats held OBU to shooting just 18.8 percent from the field in the second half. The Cats won the battle on the boards, 44-35. RSU shot 40 percent from the field and were 26-of-29 from the charity stripe.

Fritz rounded out the Hillcats in double figures with 10 points. Janell Beacham led OBU with 14 points.

Rogers State (17-6, 7-2) will return to action at the Claremore Expo on Monday night against SAC opponent John Brown. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. The game will be streamed live on the Hillcat Network at and on RSU Radio at 91.3 FM.
