Gorilla Women Beat SBU

Updated:

PITTSBURG -- Four Pittsburg State players scored in double figures to help the Gorilla Women's Basketball team (14-7, 8-5 MIAA) to a 74-61 win over Southwest Baptist (9-12, 4-9 MIAA) on Saturday (February 9).

Lizzy Jeronimus led all-players with 20 points. She also had six rebounds and a team-leading five assists and two steals. Alexa Bordewick added 14 points, as she made four threes on the afternoon and added two free throws. Brigit Hesser scored 10 points, six coming from a 6-for-6 performance from the charity stripe. Kylie Gafford came off the bench to score 10 points. Morgan Westhodd was just short of double figures with nine. Y'Cedria Devers led the team with seven rebounds.

Southwest Baptist had three players in double figures. Jacqui Zelenka recorded a double-double with 19 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Bearcats. Brook Duncan added 18 points off the bench and Brittney Dukes scored 10 and added eight assists.

The Bearcats only had the lead once in the game, at 9-8, on a tip in by Zelenka. A jumper by Westhoff quickly gave the Gorillas the lead back and they never relenquished it.  Pitt State reached its first double digit lead on a three by Drew Roberts with 8:18 left in the first half. SBU was able to cut the  Gorilla lead to five, but Pitt State went on a 11-2 run to end the half leading 39-25.

Pitt State led by a high of 19 points, 57-38, on a tip in by Lauren Brown with 6:32 left in the game. SBU slowly whittled at the Gorilla lead to cut it to single digits with a minute left in the game. The Bearcats hit their last shot from the floor, a three by Duncan, with 45 seconds left, leaving them down by only eight, 69-61. Pitt State hit five of its six three point attempts down the stretch to finish with the 74-61 win.

The Gorillas shot .479 from the floor on the night, including .560 in the first half. The team was 5-for-8 from three-point range in the first half and finished the game shooting 41 percent from long range.

Pitt State has a bye from midweek play next week, but will return to action in John Lance Arena on Saturday, February 16 vs. Northeastern State.
