Over this past weekend, the Lady Buff Basketball squad participated in the Pak-A-Sak Lady Buff Thanksgiving Classic with a victory over McMurry University 82-23 on Friday before suffering a 79-51 loss on Saturday to Southwestern Oklahoma State.
On Friday, the Lady Buffs played a complete game as they dominated the Warhawks. While the first half was very much tipped in a 20 point favor for the Lady Buffs, it was the second half that defined the rout as the home team kept the Warhawks to only three points during the last fifteen minutes of the game. Leading the Lady Buffs was junior forward Devin Griffin, who scored 17 points. Sophomore center Chontiquah White posted 15 points, while junior forward Lacee Logan contributed with 12 points.
The next evening, the Bulldogs proved to be too much for the Lady Buffs as SWOSU led at halftime 38-16. Despite a 10-0 run to begin the second half, the Lady Buffs fell victim to a counter-run by the Bulldogs before SWOSU closed the game with a 32-20 stretch for the final tally. Griffin and White attained double-doubles with 10 points, 11 rebounds and 11 points, 16 points respectively.
Laccee Logan added 11 points. However, the Bulldogs countered with Michelle Fisher’s 22 points, MaRiah Oyler’s 16 points, and Sarah Mendoza’s 13 points.
The Lady Buffs stumbles to 2-4 in the 2012-13 campaign, McMurry falls to 0-5 and Southwestern Oklahoma State improves to 4-1 on the season. WT women’s basketball returns to the court on Wednesday, Nov. 28 as they host Abilene Christian to open Lone Star play at the First United Bank Center at 6 p.m.
