OKLAHOMA CITY– After a two-week hiatus for the USAO women’s basketball team, the Drovers fell to a high-powered offense of Mid-America Christian on the road Saturday afternoon.
The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (1-3, 0-1) had its conference opener Thursday postponed and instead opened conference action up the road in Oklahoma City.
The Drovers hoped to come in and make a statement in the Sooner Athletic Conference opener, but ended with an 57-88 loss to the Evangels (8-1, 2-0).
USAO’s top scored was senior Rashelle Carr, who scored 16 for the Drovers. Carr was one of two Drovers to score in the double figures. The other was Amber Chaney, who had 10 points on 5-for-8 from the field.
Carr also led the team in rebounds with seven and assists with four on the game. She had three steals as well.
USAO sunk an average of 32 percent of its shots on Saturday.
The Drovers will go on Christmas break with the next game coming in the New Year at 6 p.m. Jan. 2 at John Brown University.
The next home game for the Drovers is scheduled for 3 p.m. Jan 4 against Saint Gregory’s. USAO will broadcast the game live in high-definition on USAO's athletic website.
It also is USAO’s annual City Workers Night and city workers from Chickasha and surrounding communities can enter the game for free.
The USAO- Oklahoma Baptist game originally scheduled for Dec. 5 has yet to be rescheduled and will be rescheduled at a later date.
