Trip To Mountain State Awaits Women's Basketball This Weekend


COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio Dominican's women's basketball team will look to bounce back from two tight losses as the Panthers hit the road to take on Davis & Elkins Thursday and Alderson Broaddus Saturday.

ODU has dropped its last two games by a total of six points, falling 92-88 in overtime at Findlay on Jan. 2 and 72-70 to Cedarville on Jan. 6.

This will be the first meeting between ODU and Davis & Elkins in the Panthers' Division II era, and ODU has a 2-0 lead in the recent series with Alderson Broaddus, including an 82-35 win over AB last November.

ODU continues to sport one of the most prolific offenses in the league, averaging 77.4 points per game, which is third-best in the league. The Panthers have hit 10 triples in each of the past two games, the first time since Dec. 30-31, 2009 that ODU has knocked down 10 or more triples in consecutive games.

Four players scored in double figures for ODU against Cedarville, including an 18-point, six-rebound performance from Alexis Overly. She has committed just three turnovers in the last five games, with 21 assists in that stretch.

Darian Rose scored 15 points against the Yellow Jackets and is averaging 12.8 points per game on 51.3 percent shooting in eight G-MAC games.
