Lady 'Cats Open Conference Play with Big Win

Lady CatsThe College of the Ozarks Lady Bobcats opened their conference season with a 15-point victory over visiting Oklahoma Wesleyan University, 81-66.    During the first half, the Lady ‘Cats led by as many as 13 but allowed OWU to sneak back into the game to trail by only one at the half.  College of the Ozarks came back strong in the second half and spread their lead to 14 by midway through the period.  The game was fraught with foul calls—53 to be exact.  Leading the Lady Bobcats to victory were Emily Walker (21 points), Brandy Uchtman (19), and Alice Heinzler (18).  Heinzler and Walker also managed to each nab five steals.  Leading Oklahoma Wesleyan were Delaney and Megan Jones with 15 and 13 points.  Tonight’s win brings the Lady Bobcats record to 13-4.
