SIOUX CITY, Iowa — The Eastern Oregon Lady Mountaineers moved into the NAIA’s “Sweet 16” Thursday with a 86-54 win over Southwestern (Kan.).

The Mountaineers responded with a 17-3 run to close out the half leading 46-26.

EOU senior Brooke Randall led all scorers with 24 points, including being a perfect 8 of 8 at the free throw line. Korrie Bourn and Jori Freeman added 11 each and Chayla Jones put in 10 points. Freeman fouled out of the game with more than six minutes left.

The Mountaineers had a 50-12 edge in points from inside th key.
