SSU Sports Informtion

Portsmouth, Ohio - Shawnee State women's basketball won their third straight on Saturday evening, defeating West Virginia Tech 94-69.

SSU would immediately get off to a good start as the Bears would have a two-possession lead before West Virginia Tech even got the ball. Lydia Poe would get fouled in the post, and after hitting the first free throw would miss the second, rebounded by Shania Massie. Massie would hit a corner three to get Shawnee State up 4-0. Massie would hit on the next trip down for the Bears to give SSU a 7-0 lead. Shawnee State would never trail after getting off to this hot start, and would hold a 21-13 advantage after one quarter.

The second quarter would be more of a slog as West Virginia Tech would slow the game down. A Brittney Justice made basket with 2:36 to go to halftime would tie the game at 30-30. Shawnee State would push out into the lead again, as Leah Wingeier would score over Savannah Shamblin's foul and hit a free throw to give Shawnee State a 33-30 lead. The Bears would close the half up 41-35 after a tough half of basketball.
