CHICKASHA — The important cause and special uniforms weren't enough to give the Drover women the edge on Saturday afternoon as the Lady Bison defeated USAO 72-50.
Senior Liberty Payne led the team in scoring with 12 points in the game, and Natalie Colton had another scored 10.
Sophomore Paige Pulliam scored 10 points, grabbed eight rebounds and had two assists. Tashina Ototivo also was significant in rebounding with another eight.
It was USAO’s second ever Pink Out Cancer game and the Drover women wore pink jerseys for the first time. The university’s chapter of Colleges Against Cancer raised money for cancer awareness and research.
The Drovers are 5-20 and 2-16 in the Sooner Athletic Conference.
USAO travels to Oklahoma Christian on Thursday before returning home for Homecoming on Feb. 18. Games will be at 3 and 5 p.m. at the USAO Fieldhouse. Alumni of the university get in free with an Alumni Association card. Those without a card can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a pass.
