Women's Basketball Hits 100 Again In Exhibition Finale
Nov. 8, 2009
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Six different players scored in double figures as the Oregon State women's basketball team hit the 100-point plateau for the second consecutive game in a 103-25 win over Lewis & Clark in an exhibition Sunday night at legendary Gill Coliseum.
The win over the Pioneers marked the second and final exhibition game of the 2009-10 season for the Beavers, who opened with a 113-35 victory over Concordia nearly a week ago.
'The most important thing for us was to look at different combinations and to do some things well,' head coach LaVonda Wagner said of the exhibition finale on Sunday. 'The one thing we did really well was rebounding the basketball, but it has to get better. Our free throws were not where they needed to be, our layup offense was pretty good, but we have to understand concepts and executions and team defense.'
Kate Lanz paced Oregon State with 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting, including three from beyond the three-point line.
Oregon State shot 60.9 percent from the field (42-for-69) and was 6-for-14 from beyond the three-point line. The Beavers forced 38 Lewis & Clark turnovers while committing just 11. The Beavers also led in steals - 22 to 3 - and rebounding, 39-26.
Kennedy had five steals and four assists to go with her 10 points. McCalister also had four assists in the victory.
Futch led the Beavers with seven rebounds, while McCalister had six.
Neva Hauser led Lewis & Clark with seven points. The Pios, as a team, shot 20 percent from the field (9-for-45) and connected on just one of 13 attempts from beyond the three-point line.
The Beavers held a 47-10 lead at the half, highlighted by eight points apiece from Rhea and McCalister. Oregon State shot an equal 50 percent from the field, and finished with 21 rebounds to the Pioneers' 14.
Oregon State also garnered 11 steals in the first half while Lewis & Clark had 22 turnovers. Kennedy had five of OSU's 11 steals.
The Beavers went on a 22-2 run over the last 10 minutes of the half to reach the 37-point deficit heading into the locker room.
