So far, it's been so good for women's basketball

Recently, the women's basketball team has been playing like a house on fire.

After dropping their opening game to Washington and Jefferson, the Spartans have won four straight. After torching Ohio Athletic Conference competition in Pittsburgh two weeks ago, the team has gone on to beat Baldwin Wallace in an overtime thriller and the College of Wooster in a severely lopsided 78-46 victory at home last Saturday.

The Fighting Scots came out fast stealing a quick 8-2 lead less than two minutes into the game. However, once the Spartans settled down and began to execute their game plan, there was no question who was in control for the rest of the game. With just under 13 minutes remaining in the first half, Caitlin Henry drained a three and the team never looked back. At the half the Spartans enjoyed a 20 point lead. The second half was more of the same. The real tale of the game came from the Spartans' points in the paint and off the bench, where they outscored Wooster by 18 and 21 points, respectively.

Caitlin Henry finished with 14 points, five rebounds, and two steals. Ashleigh Tondo also played well, scoring 12, grabbing five rebounds, and taking two away from the Scots. Erin Hollinger and Evy Iacono were on swat patrol down low with three and two blocks, respectively. All but one member of the team contributed to the scoring line.


What: Case vs. Oberlin College

When: Monday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m.

Where: Horsburgh Gymnasium.

Comment: The Yeomen should not pose a serious threat to the Spartan women, as they have yet to win a game. That being said, in the midst of exams and the end of classes, the team cannot overlook or play down to an inferior opponent.
