Women Defeat Johnson Bible College 89-55
In their first regional game of the season, The Lady Trailblazers came out blazing, running a fast-paced transition game and jumping out to a 40-17 first-half lead. They didn't let up in the second half, winning the game by a score of 89-55. OCU had a balanced attack, led by senior guard Michel Hughes with 24 points, 13 rebounds, and 7 assists. Freshman guard Charie Hicks added 17 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists. Freshman guard Tova Black contributed 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. Freshman forward Sarah Peters also had a double-double, scoring 15 points and pulling down 10 boards. Junior center Ashley Jordan led the Lady Blazers' defensive attack, virtually shutting down Johnson's leading scorer, and blocking four shots.
The win gave the OCU women's basketball team its first victory in NCCAA Mid-East Regional play, and extended their overall record to 9-6. The Ohio Christian University women's basketball team continues regional action this week when they travel to #1 ranked Kentucky Christian on Tuesday, and then they will go back to Tennessee on Friday to face Freewill Baptist Bible College.
