SAINT CATHARINE, Ky. (Women's Basketball) – Ali Zieverink (SR/West Chester, Ohio) and Jen Arnzen (JR/Portsmouth, Ohio) both got off to hot starts, as the Shawnee State women's basketball team took care of business on the road, defeating St. Catharine College, 80-62, on Saturday afternoon at Lourdes Hall.
Zieverink finished the afternoon with a team-high 25 points, as she was a perfect 7-7 from the foul line, while Arnzen contributed a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. (Women's Basketball) – Despite a 24 point, 11 rebound performance from Ali Zieverink (SR/West Chester, Ohio), the Shawnee State women's basketball team committed a season-high 28 turnovers, as the No. 5 Bears fell, 65-53, at the hands of top-ranked Campbellsville University on Thursday night at the J.K. Powell Athletic Center.
The Bears (18-3, 6-1 Mid-South) were limited to just 39.6 percent shooting on 19-of-48 shooting in the contest and – despite holding the Lady Tigers (19-3, 6-1 Mid-South) to 22-of-66 from the field – were unable to cut a second half deficit to fewer than nine in the fourth quarter.
CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. (Women's Basketball) – The last time the Shawnee State women's basketball team squared off against a No. 1 ranked opponent, the Bears walked away with a 10-point victory. On Thursday night in Powell Athletic Center, it will be déjà vu all over again.
In fact, not only will Shawnee State – under the tutelage of head coach Jeff Nickel – take on the No. 1 team in the NAIA Division I Coaches' Poll, but it will be the same opponent the Bears faced the last time, as SSU visits top-ranked Campbellsville University with tip-off set for 6 p.m.
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Women's and Men's Basketball) – Due to continued inclement weather in the Pikeville, Ky. area, Shawnee State's men's and women's basketball games scheduled for Saturday have been postponed.
WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (Women's Basketball) – The Shawnee State women's basketball team trailed the University of the Cumberlands from the 8:11 mark in the third quarter until the 2:30 mark in the fourth quarter.
The final two and a half minutes proved to be all the Bears (18-2, 6-0 Mid-South) needed, as the visiting squad used an and-one from Madison Ridout (SO/Jackson, Ohio) and a bucket from Ashton Lovely (FR/Jamestown, Ohio) to escape Williamsburg with a 59-58 victory over the Patriots (7-9, 0-6) in Mid-South Conference action on Thursday night at the O. Wayne Rollins Center.
