The Crowder Lady Roughriders improved to 3-0 this season in games immediately after a loss, earning a 75-66 win Saturday over Seminole State in the final game of the Don Wilson Classic at Bob Sneller Gymnasium.

The Lady ‘Riders improved to 6-3 overall and return to action Tuesday afternoon on the road against Redlands, as Crowder continues its Oklahoma section of the schedule.

On Saturday, sophomore guards Michaela Mack and Tori Coulter led the way for the Lady ‘Riders with 16 and 12 points, respectively.

Eleven different Crowder players, however, reached the scoring column with nine players ranging from the lowest of three to the highest of eight. Now, that’s balance.

Elle Williams, who missed a pair of games in Texas, came through with eight, followed by Bethaney Gilkey with seven, Zahria White and Morgan Crawford six each, Coley Ickes five, the trio of Maegan Bandimere, Aubrie Ayers, and Alex Vogt with four each, and Kaytee Frasher rounded the scoring with three points.

Ickes and Coulter hit Crowder’s only 3-point shots.

The Lady ‘Riders were consistent in every quarter Saturday night, playing four balanced quarters rather than the highs and lows of recent games. Crowder scored 19 in the first, 19 in the second, 18 in the third, and 19 in the fourth.

Meanwhile, Seminole State managed 12 points in the fourth, as Crowder built seven points toward the final score from its two-point lead entering the final 10 minutes.

Seminole State sophomore forward Kaci Richardson scored a game-high 23 points, while Pamela Grover and Breail Goodlow — all three players at least 5-foot-10 in height — added 12 and 11 points, respectively. All three players also hail from Oklahoma, on a Seminole State roster — like Northern Oklahoma-Enid — filled with only players from the Sooner State.

Crowder, by the way, features five players from Oklahoma in White, Mack, Crawford, Coulter, and Ayers.

Crowder limited MyKayla Dumas to two points in this second meeting of the schools and Seminole State won the first 63-59 behind 18 points from Dumas — a distant cousin of former Oklahoma State standout and NBA player Richard Dumas — and 11 from Grover.

Crowder’s opponent Tuesday, Redlands, owned a 5-1 record with four of its wins coming against NAIA JV foes.
