Winning Streak Snapped in Ohio

12/16/2012 – The women's basketball team's four game winning streak came to a screeching halt against the Racers from Northwestern Ohio. The victory improved the Racers record to 3-9 overall and to 2-5 in the WHAC, while the Saints fell to 4-3 in conference play and to 8-5 on the season.

The Saints, who now find themselves in a three-way tie for fourth in the league standings, ran into an unexpected buzz saw in Lima, Ohio. The host Racers used a 15-0 midway through the first half to build a 26-15 advantage at the 9:59 mark of half number one. Clare Conway keyed a quick comeback and led the Saints on a 16-7 run of their own to close the gap to two at 33-31. Unfortunately on this day the Racers would never let the Saints get any closer.

The Racers used a balanced attack to extend a seven point (39-32) halftime lead to as many 21 during a second half that saw the Saints shoot 26% from the field. Northwestern Ohio out rebounded the Saints 52-44 and committed six less turnovers in the 73-56 victory. Shaye Warman and Angie Cates paced four Racers in double figures with 17 points a piece.
Allison Heberlein led the Saints with 18 points and six rebounds.

The Saints will return to action over the holiday break with a pair of games in Lake Wales, Florida against Warner (3-3) and Emmanuel (8-2).
