Stretch Run Coming Up As Women's Basketball Continues G-MAC Play This Week


COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio Dominican's women's basketball team will look to build on the momentum of a crazy second half at Ursuline as the Panthers take on Alderson Broaddus and Davis & Elkins in G-MAC play this week.

ODU trailed Ursuline 55-35 at the half on Saturday, then outscored the Arrows 69-35 over the final 25 minutes to score the 104-90 overtime win.

It was the first time ODU hit the century mark since putting up 100 in a win over Wisconsin-Parkside in the second game of the 2017-18 season. It's the seventh-highest scoring game for ODU dating back to the 1999-2000 season.

The Panthers shattered a nearly 10-year old school record in three-pointers made, knocking down 21. ODU has now made 10 or more threes in a game eight times this season. Over the past eight seasons, ODU only reached double figures in made threes nine times.

The Panthers also had a nearly two-to-one assist-to-turnover ratio (25:13), coughing it up just three times in the second half and overtime.

Two players recorded their first career double-doubles in senior Alexis Overly, who finished with 18 points and 11 assists, and freshman Alli Kern, who scored 12 points with 15 boards. Sophomore Angela Troyer neared one herself with 25 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, and freshman Kennedy Schlabach also scored 25 points. Junior Alexa Fisher added 19 points as well.

Ohio Dominican fell to Alderson Broaddus 63-56 in the first meeting on Dec. 15 as the Panthers were outscored 28-3 in the fourth quarter. ODU leads the series 4-1 against AB, dating back to 2015.

ODU scored a 66-62 win at Davis & Elkins on Dec. 13, shooting 52.1 percent in the contest. The Panthers have won all three meetings with the Senators in the last two seasons.
