News from Lindsey Wilson College
BILLINGS, MT (Sat 18 Mar 2017) - Oklahoma City outscored Lindsey Wilson 24-9 from beyond the 3-point arc in an 80-64 win on Saturday at the 2017 NAIA Division I Women's Basketball National Championship, at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark.
No. 4-ranked Lindsey Wilson concludes its season with a program-record 32 wins while reaching its second straight national quarterfinals. Oklahoma City advances to Monday's national semifinals.
Lindsey Wilson -- the top seed in the Cramer Bracket -- managed just 3-of-16 (18.8 percent) shooting from 3-point range while the fifth-ranked Stars (32-2) connected on 61.5 percent (8-of-13) of their threes.
Lindsey Wilson got off to a solid start taking a 9-5 lead -- its biggest -- in the first five minutes of the game.
Oklahoma City -- the No. 2 seed in the Cramer Bracket -- used the next seven minutes to go on a 25-4 run to take a 30-13 lead early in the second quarter. The Stars extended their lead to as many as 18 points on two different occasions in the quarter.
The Blue Raiders found their offensive game in the latter stages of the second quarter. Lindsey Wilson scored 12 of the final 19 points in the final three minutes to trail 45-32 at the break. Chanel Roberts and Kayla Styles combined for 10 of the 12 Lindsey Wilson points during the spurt to put the Blue Raiders within striking difference at the half.
Lindsey Wilson continued the momentum into the third quarter. Roberts -- who finished with 13 points -- scored the opening basket of the half and Kayla Richardson added a pair of free throws to trim the OCU lead to single digits (45-36).
The Blue Raiders ultimately closed within eight points (48-40) with just over seven minutes left in the third before the Stars extended the lead back to 12 in the waning seconds of the quarter.
Teanna Curry -- who finished with a season-high 17 points -- hit a 3-pointer ahead of the third-quarter buzzer to cut the Oklahoma City lead to 62-53 heading to the final quarter.
Roberts and Styles scored the first four points of the fourth to inch the Blue Raiders within five points -- the closest Lindsey Wilson would get to the Stars.
Styles ended the game with her 19th double-double of the season with 20 points and a game-high 15 rebounds.
A second Lindsey Wilson drought reared its ugly head over the next six minutes. Up by five points, Oklahoma City used a 13-2 run to give the Stars a 75-59 lead with 2:28 left in the game, all but securing the Fab Four berth.
Curry scored the Blue Raiders' final five points of the season en route to her season high providing the 80-64 final score.
Lindsey Wilson shot 37.5 percent (21-of-56) from the field while Oklahoma City -- the nation's best shooting team -- connected on 46.9 percent (30-64).
Oklahoma City's Daniela Wallen and Daniela Galindo led the Stars with 22 points each.
Lindsey Wilson's season ends at 32-3.
