Women’s Basketball Wins Second Straight With 84-37 Win Over Wofford< < Back to
Behind junior guard Kiyanna Black’s 21 points and nine rebounds, the Ohio Bobcats dominated the Wofford Terriers by a final of 84-37.
The Bobcats started out strong on defense, not letting up a single point until the 14-minute mark. At that point, Ohio was already up nine to nothing. The team had the lead for the entire game, and looked in control from the opening tip winning to run away with a 47-point victory.
Just like in the season opener, the Bobcats shot extremely well from behind the three-point line going 9 for 21 (43 percent). The only freshman on the team, Kelly Karlis, shot 100% from the field going for 13 points on the night. In total, four players scored ten or more points for the Bobcats, including career high ten points for Jasmine Weatherspoon.
Quiera Lampkins added sixteen points for the Bobcats, and five rebounds. Assists for the night were very spread out tonight, with every player recording at least one assists; Yamonie Jenkins lead the team with five. Ohio also only had eight turnovers for the entire game.
Ohio dominated on the defensive end for the second straight game. The Bobcats held the Terriers to only 14 made shots on 52 attempts (27 percent). The Bobcats also held Wofford to 26 percent from behind the arc. Ohio forced an astonishing 28 turnovers with Lampkins leading the team with a combined six blocks and steals. The Bobcats defense is much improved from last season, in which they allowed an average of almost 68 points per game during the non-conference season.
Ohio’s first ten points led of the game came just after the second media timeout. Kiyanna Black had her hands all over the first half with 16 points. Black scored the 35th-point to give Ohio its first 20-point lead of the game. Black also had a stretch of nine points in five minutes between the third and fourth media timeouts. The first half ended with the Bobcats up 42 to 17.
The second half started a bit sloppy for Ohio with their first points coming three minutes into the second half. After the first media timeout, the Bobcats started to roll again, taking a 31-point lead into the third media timeout in the second half. Kat Yelle hit the three to give the Bobcats their first 30-point lead. Yelle finished with eight points on the night. Ohio had a thirteen point run that ended with just three minutes left in the game. The Bobcats ended the game with Kelly Karlis scoring two free throws to make it a final score of 84 to 37.
Coach Bolden didn’t have much to say about the next game on Thursday at home against Detroit, “My brain isn’t big enough to handle two scouting reports.”
