SWOSU Sweeps Pak-A-Sak Classic to Close Out Non-Conference Play


CANYON, Texas – The Lady Bulldog Basketball Team made it two wins in two days against Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) opponents after an 87-71 victory over Fort Lewis College on Saturday.

Double-digit leads have been very familiar for SWOSU during their now five game winning streak, and this afternoon was no different. The Lady Bulldogs used a 10-0 run near the end of the first quarter to grow the lead, and an 11-2 run to solidify it and close out the first half. At halftime, SWOSU led 48-35.

In the game’s final 20 minutes, the margin fluctuated between 10-17 points and only dipped into single digits for a two-minute time frame near the end of the contest. The Skyhawks knocked down a three with 4:40 left to play that put them within nine at 80-71, but SWOSU would score the game’s final seven points to eliminate any threat of a comeback.

Karly Gore stuffed the stat sheet Saturday, finishing with 13 points, nine rebounds and seven assists – one rebound shy of a double-double. Makyra Tramble scored a team high 27 points and added seven rebounds. Lauren Ramey finished with 15 points and Morgan Smith chipped in 12 off the bench.

As a team, SWOSU shot 46% (33-of-71) and 36% (13-of-36) from three-point land. Fort Lewis had success offensively as well and finished at 43% shooting as a team but could not handle the Lady Dawg defensive pressure and committed 20 turnovers on the afternoon.

SWOSU (6-2) will now turn their attention to conference play. The Lady Bulldogs will open up Great American Conference action this Thursday (Dec. 2) against Southeastern inside the Pioneer Cellular Event Center in Weatherford. They’ll then turn around and host Oklahoma Baptist on Saturday (Dec. 4). SWOSU’s next four games will all be in front of a home crowd and will all be GAC contests.
