KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech had five players in double figures, including a double-double effort from freshman Kassi Conditt, as the Lady Owls dominated Pacific Union in the 2010-11 home opener this afternoon at Danny Miles Court by an 84-52 final.
Pacific Union moved out to a 16-11 lead before the Owls would put things together. Freshman Karissa Dixon sparked the Owls with a 3-pointer and cut the deficit to 16-14. Conditt scored off an offensive rebound, while a Colleen Hunt steal and layup tied the contest at 18-18. Another put back by Conditt would give Tech the lead for good, as the Owls headed to halftime up 45-33.
Pacific Union got the game to within 10 points, but four straight Hunt free throws, followed by back-to-back-to-back Conditt baskets put the Owls up 17 points. The Owls would maintain a 20 point cushion for most of the second half, eventually moving on to an 84-52 win.
Conditt was 7-for-11 from the floor and 2-of-3 from the free throw line to score her team-high 16 points. Conditt grabbed 10 boards, including five on the offensive end. Morgan Hofman netted 12 points, followed by 11 each from Hunt and Dixon. Aundrea Albright finished the day with 10 points to go with seven rebounds.
Tech shot near 50.0% for the game, while knocking in 18-of-25 from the charity stripe. The Tech defense held the Pioneers to 30.2% shooting and also forced the visitors into 26 turnovers. The Owls held a slight advantage on rebounds, grabbing 40 compared to 37 for PUC.
JoAnn Mauries connected for a game-high 22 points for Pacific Union before fouling out with just under 10 minutes to play. Doris Becerra finished with seven points, while Lara Canders grabbed eight boards in the loss.
