KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech held their opponents to just 10 second half points, as the
Owls head into Cascade Conference play with a decisive 90-37
non-conference win over Northwest Indian College in a rare Monday
afternoon game at Danny Miles Court.
After trailing 8-7 to Northwest Indian College, Karissa Dixon scored on her first try and the Owls would never trail for the remainder. A Tess Armstrong drive and layup broke an 11-11 tie and sparked a 9-0 run giving Tech a 20-11 advantage.
Leading 35-20 with 8:13 to play in the opening period, a 10-0 Owl spurt gave the home team a 25 point advantage, their largest margin in the first half, as Oregon Tech held a commanding 51-27 edge at the break.
The Owls defense stymied the Eagles offense in the second stanza, holding NWIC to just two second half field goals, and only 10 points, on the way to a 90-37 victory.
With the win Oregon Tech remains perfect on the season, moving to 10-0 overall, and will next open up Cascade Collegiate Conference play this Friday and Saturday versus Warner Pacific College and Concordia University with the tip set for 5:30 PM both nights.
Karly Leveque finished with a game-high 19 points with Mckensey Peters chipping in 12, as the duo were the only Owls in double figures. 14 of Tech’s 15 players scored in the game with Karissa Dixon adding nine points with eight each from Mary Drzayich and Megan Whetstone. The Owls outrebounded NWIC by a 50-26 advantage, including 23 on the offensive end.
