WOODWARD — Junior guard Riley Jamison made one of her two shots inside of 19 feet, nine inches Friday while making 6-of-7 beyond that distance to lead Woodward-Granger to a 60-36 win over visiting Earlham in WCC play.
Jamison sank both of her free throw attempts as well to finish with a career-best 22 points as the Hawks (2-14, 2-12) won their second game of the season, both of which have come at the expense of the Cardinals (0-19, 0-14). W-G was a 50-34 winner Jan. 5 in Earlham, and since then had lost eight straight, a streak snapped due, in part, to a fast start Friday that saw the hosts grab a 19-8 lead after one quarter of action.
W-G held a 29-18 lead at the intermission, but used a 14-6 edge in the third frame to post a 43-24 lead entering the final stanza that ended all doubt to the eventual outcome.
Mary Hansen added 12 points and Maggi Mallon 10 for W-G, with Emily Kuehl scoring six points and Kaitlyn Peters four. Baskets from Kayley Dresback, Kendra Husmann and Alyssa Bice capped the Hawk scoring list.
Hansen had eight rebounds, Mallon five and Jamison and Husmann four apiece to lead a 36-carom effort. Six assists from Hansen led the team, with Kuehl having four assists and Jamison two, with Hansen making four steals and Riley Kirton, Dresback and Mallon two apiece while Dresback and Hansen each blocked a shot.
W-G visits Guthrie Center Tuesday before ending the regular season Friday with a visit from Panorama in a game rescheduled from Feb. 2.
