The Haskell Indian Nations women’s basketball team slowed down No. 8 College of the Ozarks, but it wasn’t enough, as it fell, 57-48, on Tuesday at Coffin Complex.
Haskell led, 28-27, at halftime.
College of the Ozarks came into the game averaging 80 points a game, Haskell coach Phil Homeratha said.
“It was just a matter of slowing them down,” he said.
Holding them to just 57 points, he said, was “a pretty good feat in itself.”
Autumn Burtt led Haskell with 15 points. Lois Stevens scored 12 and Sharon Forte added 11.
All-America candidate Morgan Smith led the College of the Ozarks with 14 points. Haskell, which has five home games coming up, will play Oklahoma Weslyan at 5:30 p.m. Friday at Coffin Complex.
