ADA, Okla. – The SWOSU Women’s Basketball team connected on 14 three-pointers and shot 49.3% from the field on their way to a 92-77 season-opening victory over East Central on Thursday night at the Kerr Activities Center.
SWOSU was paced by sophomore Makyra Tramble, who blitzed the nets with six three pointers as part of her 10-of-18 shooting night from the field. She scored a game-high 27 points while pulling down seven rebounds and adding two steals.
She was one of four players in double figures for the Lady Dawgs, joined by Taber Beer (15), Karly Gore (15) and Lauren Ramey (14). Bethany Franks pulled down a team-best 10 rebounds to go along with three blocked shots.
The Lady Bulldogs never trailed in the game, which was only tied once, and they outscored ECU 25-10 in the first quarter, which proved to be the difference in the game. SWOSU and East Central played even in each of the final three quarters, scoring 21 points apiece in the second quarter and 23 apiece in the third and fourth quarters.
With the victory, SWOSU opens the season and conference play 1-0, a mark they will take into a showdown with Southeastern on Saturday afternoon at the Pioneer Cellular Event Center. Tipoff for the game is set for 2:00 pm. Fans are unable to attend the game, but they can follow live at SWOSUAthletics.com.
