EOU WOMEN CHALK UP NINTH STRAIGHT WIN

By C.J. Gish

Observer Staff Writer

Eastern Oregon University made up for late mistakes and a barrage of Western Baptist 3-pointers to win its ninth straight womens basketball game Friday.

The Mountaineers beat the visiting Warriors 96-83 in Cascade Collegiate Conference action at Quinn Coliseum, but it wasnt easy.

Armed with a 15-point lead with 6:09 remaining, Eastern let the Warriors claw back within 83-78 with 3:57 left by turning the ball over three straight times and allowing a pair of 3-pointers during the rally.

A pair of Brooke Sellards free throws and a Jamie Jo Cant 3-pointer off a Tricia Haddock pass gave the Mountaineers some breathing room. Julie Coffin completed a three-point play after getting fouled on a spinning layup to put Eastern ahead 90-78.

That was incredible, Eastern coach Anji Weissenfluh said. If anyone had told me before the game that wed score 96 points and they would have 83, Id never have believed them.

Eastern (9-1 overall, 2-0 conference) got things going early with Rachelle Stockman nailing two 3-pointers and Cant adding another to give the Mountaineers a 15-6 lead.

The long-ball was Westerns best weapon of the night. The Warriors kept the game close in the first half by making 11 3-point shots to stay within 52-43. For the game, Western (10-7, 2-1) shot 15-of-36 from the 3-point arc.

The Warriors led only briefly and that came during the first half following back-to-back 3-pointers from Tara Schmidgall and Kristi Born to go ahead, 35-32.

Eastern, on the other hand, used a balanced attack, making 25 2-pointers and nine 3-pointers while shooting 57 percent from the field for the game.

I think even though we were 8-1 coming into the game, we werent sure where we were, Weissenfluh said. But (Western coach) Terry Williams said to me youre the real deal after the game.

Sellards led Eastern with 23 points and tied Haddock with a team-high nine assists. Coffin and Cant added 16 points apiece and Stockman had 13 points. Cant added nine rebounds. Danielle Dianda came off the bench for 12 points and Haddock added 11.

Lindsy Hinkle scored 20 points to lead Western Baptist. Schmidgall had 18.

Eastern heads into tonights game hosting Southern Oregon with nine straight wins, its second-longest streak in school history behind the 1983-84 teams 12 in a row.
