SAC WOMEN'S BB: Wayland Baptist rolls past MACU, 84-73

PLAINVIEW, Texas — For the third game in a row, Wayland Baptist junior Angeleigh Davis broke her own career scoring record, contributing 26 points in the Flying Queens' 84-73 victory over Mid-America Christian University here Thursday evening.

Three Wayland players ended with point totals in the double digits, giving the Flying Queens the win in their Sooner Athletic Conference home opener.

Head coach Tory Bryant said his team hit all the right notes in the victory.

“For us to win, I think we need four players in double figures and tonight we had Angeleigh with 26, Laura Castillo and Christie Mooney with 13 and others with eight and seven,” he said. “Overall, I'm proud of the kids…they competed well and protected our home court, which gives us a chance later on because our road games are so tough.”

Hot hand Kourtni Williams scored two quick buckets to give MACU (9-4, 0-2 SAC) a 4-0 lead, but Wayland (11-7, 3-1) soon elbowed its way into the party, tying the game up at 6 apiece five minutes into the game. The Lady Evangels gave the Flying Queens just about everything they could handle, taking a seven-point lead around the halfway mark of the first half.

Two free throws from Davis and jumpers from Mooney, Rochelle Norris and Aubrey Pedigo put Wayland right back in the mix, tying the game at 18. From there, the Flying Queens took the lead, which they maintained for the remainder of the half. MACU wouldn't back down, however, and started to inch closer, pulling within two as the teams headed to the locker room at the half. The Flying Queens led 42-40 at the break.

Williams led all scorers with 19 points, nearly half of her team's point total, while Davis paced Wayland with 11.

The Lady Evangels came out with renewed energy in the second, quickly closing the gap and taking a five-point lead eight minutes into the half. Wayland didn't panic, but continued to push the offensive pace, with every Flying Queen putting points on the board.

  • 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.
