Lady Bison Rout USAO

February 23, 2008


Taujhnae Travis, who was not yet eligible the first time the teams met this season in Chickasha, scored 30 points for a season high for the team this season.

"After watching the first game, I really wanted to play these guys," Travis said. "We were all pumped up for this one. It was a great game for all of us."

The win moved OBU to 25-3 with the Lady Bison starting to turn their attention to wins equaling better seeding at the NAIA Tournament.

OBU shot 50 percent from three-point range, hitting on 11 of 22 attempts.

The Lady Bison never trailed in the game after Jennifer Jupin hit two three-pointers for an early 6-0 lead.

The lead grew to 17 on 16-4 run, 22-5, with back-to-back three-pointers by Travis and Jayme Glover. USAO was able to pull back within seven by intermission, 32-25.

The Lady Bison scored the first five points of the second half to get the lead back to 12 and never allowed back-to-back field goal possessions by USAO in the second half.

The lead peaked at 28, 86-58, when Jessi Donnel and Tanna Truelove combined for a four-for-four free throw run.

Joining Travis in double figures were Glover with 12, Heather Graham with 11 and Jupin with 10.

Yesi Castillo and Kartesha Rambo had 14 each for USAO.

The Lady Bison end the home schedule Thursday with a 6 p.m. tip against Rogers State.
