Fox, NSU women rout Monticello

Carrington Fox put together a career performance to lead the Northeastern State women’s basketball team to a decisive 79-41 win over the University of Arkansas at Monticello Tuesday night at Jack Dobbins Field House.

The junior forward notched career bests in both rebounds and assists as she finished with 11 points, nine boards, six assists, and four blocks.

“It was just all in the cards tonight,” Fox said. “My teammates got me the ball, we had good high-low posts, and we had good offense all around.”

NSU senior guard Taylor Lewis hit a season-high six three-point shots to lead all scorers with 18 points, and fellow senior guard Tosha Tyler added 10 points for the home team. All 10 members of the team played at least 15 minutes and scored at least four points.

NSU shot a blistering 56 percent from the field (33-for-59), and the team hit its first six three’s en route to a 52 percent night from downtown (11-for-21). The RiverHawks also recorded a season-high 26 assists and a season-low eight turnovers.

“This was a good performance by our team on both ends of the floor,” NSU coach Randy Gipson said. “We came out and hit some three’s to get started after they zoned us early. We were alert and into the game, just like we’d hope they’d be. The team played together on both ends of the floor.”

The Cotton Blossoms were held to just 35 percent shooting (17-for-48) and 14 percent (2-for-14) from behind the arc. Demetra Howlingwolf led the visitors with 12 points.

The 38-point victory was the largest margin since Nov. 7, 2009, and the RiverHawks have now won their last two games by a total of 58 points.

“We’re playing with better energy and more alertly on both ends,” Gipson said. “Our defense was solid and the stats reflect that. The assist-to-turnover ratio also showed that we managed the ball well. We shared it and moved it to the open person.”

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
