Mountaineers pick up two more conference wins  

Brittney Newcomb continued to get help from her teammates on the Eastern Oregon University women’s basketball team.

The Mountaineers picked up a 73-61 win against Corban University Saturday despite a season-low for Newcomb, who scored just nine points.

This time it was Nicole Redd who came to the rescue. The senior point guard had a game-high 21 points, scoring 13 in the first half. 

The Mountaineers extended three streaks with the win. EOU has now won seven straight games, 29 straight Cascade Collegiate Conference games and 32 straight games in Quinn Coliseum.

Madeline Laan added 10 points, with eight in the first half. Payton Parrish and Kassy Larson finished with 12 and 10 points, respectively, off the bench.

Along with Newcomb’s season low, EOU tied a season low by making just three 3-point shots.

The Mountaineers built a 40-25 lead at the half, holding the Warriors to 33 percent shooting in the first half.

Tara Vanweerdhhuizen led Corban with 14 points, while Juila Young added 11 points.

An off night turned into a thrilling game at Quinn Coliseum for Eastern Oregon University fans. The Mountaineers saw three streaks continue with a 71-56 win against Northwest Christian University Friday night. But, one did come to an end. 

Freshman Kelsey Hill came off the bench to lead EOU in scoring, finishing 5-of-10 from the floor for 14 points, while Payton Parrish added 10 off the bench. 

The Mountaineers, winners of six straight games, extended their winning streak in Quinn Coliseum to 31 games, and pushed the Cascade Collegiate Conference winning streak to 28 games.

It all came on an off night from leading scorer Brittney Newcomb. The senior went 0-of-10 from the floor in the first half, and was held scoreless. The Weber State transfer got things going in the second half, and finished with 12 points. It ends Newcomb’s streak of 13 straight games leading the Mountaineers in scoring. 

The game went back-and-forth in the first half, with the Mountaineers taking a 32-29 halftime lead. EOU pulled away with a 10-1 run capped by 3-pointers by Maloree Moss and Newcomb, giving the Mountaineers a 56-46 lead.

The Beacons were led by Chandler Gabrio with 18 points, while Allie Kelsey finished with 11 points.

EOU (17-4 overall, 9-0 CCC) will travel to Klamath Falls to take on Oregon Institute of Technology Friday at 5:30 p.m.
