UC Women’s Basketball runs into buzzsaw at #7 Louisville


LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Turnovers proved costly for the University of Cincinnati women’s basketball Saturday afternoon as the Bearcats suffered a 64-45 loss to No. 7 Louisville inside the KFC Yum! Center.

The Bearcats were plagued by a season-high 27 turnovers and allowed a season-high 19 steals to the Cardinals during the loss. Louisville capitalized on the miscues, turning them into 23 points.

Despite the struggles handling the ball, the Cincinnati defense caused problems for a top-10 team for the second time this season as Louisville’s 64 points match their season-low scoring effort, a 69-64 loss to then No. 7 Kentucky. UC previously held No. 1 UConn to their season-low scoring total of 67 points.

Overall Cincinnati limited the Cardinals to their lowest shooting effort of the season, finishing the game at 32.8 percent (20-of-61). The Bearcats shot just higher than Louisville at 35.6 percent (16-of-45). Louisville held a 26-14 edge in points in the paint and outrebounded the Bearcats 46-34, including 20 offensive rebounds.

Kayla Cook (South Webster, Ohio/South Webster) led UC in scoring with 14 points. The senior guard was 5-of-11 from the floor including 3-of-8 from the beyond the arc. Jasmine Whitfield (Crestwood, Ky./South Oldham) added double-digit points for the second straight game after going 5-of-6 from the free throw line. The sophomore guard also grabbed five rebounds dished out one assist and recorded one steal.

Jeanise Randolph (Chicago, Ill/Thornton Fractional North) played a large part in UC’s defensive effort, recording six blocks and 14 rebounds. The six swatted shots mark a new career-high mark for the senior and move her into sixth on Cincinnati’s all-time blocks list with 63. She is just five shy of tying Anne Stephens (2003-06) for fifth place. The senior forwarded also added three steals, and one assist to her stat line.

The Cardinals opened the game 0-for-9 from the floor, eventually shooting just 18.8 percent (6-of-32) from the floor in the opening stanza. However, the Bearcats were only able to put two points on the board during Louisville’s early scoring drought, allowing a Shoni Schimmel three at the 15:54 mark to give Louisville a lead on their first score of the day.

Later in the half, three’s from Whitfield and Cook helped to cut a Louisville six-point lead down to one with 5:24 in the frame. However, the Cardinals finished the final minutes on an 11-3 run to hold a 29-20 lead at the half.

The Cardinals picked up where the left off to start the second half as an 11-2 run put the game out of reach for UC. Louisville led by as many as 24 in the second half before winning by the final of 64-45.

The Bearcats will continue conference action Tuesday, January 7 when they welcome Rutgers inside Fifth Third Arena for a 2 p.m. tip off.

Defiance comeback bid falls short as Hanover holds on for win

HANOVER, Ind. – The Defiance College Men’s Basketball team fell short in a comeback effort Saturday afternoon, falling to Hanover 67-63 at Collier Arena.

Defiance (8-3, 3-1 HCAC) opened up the game with a strong run, jumping out to as much as a seven-point lead over the Panthers (7-4, 3-1 HCAC) off of a quality first half performance.

Noah Reed (Huntington, Ind./Huntington North) came off the bench in a big way for Defiance in the first half. The freshman, who was coming off a career-high 12 points in DC’s last game versus Ohio Wesleyan, led all scorers with nine points in the first half, including seven straight points for the Yellow Jackets.

Mason Roth (McComb, Ohio/McComb) and Ryan Hicks (Port Clinton, Ohio/Port Clinton) each chipped in for five points, while Bernard Edwards (Detroit, Mich./Warren Cousino) and Wade Wooley (Wauseon, Ohio/Wauseon) had four points as the Yellow Jackets went 12-for-22 (.545) in the first half.

However, Hanover also put together a strong shooting performance in the first half, going 13-for-23 (.565), most of which came in the final minutes as the Panthers rallied to bring the DC lead to just two points at the break.

The big difference between the two came from behind the arc as the half came to an end, where the Yellow Jackets made four three pointers to Hanover’s one in the first 20 minutes.

After the teams traded a few baskets to start the second half, Hanover took the lead with an 11-2 run in a three-minute span.

From that point, Defiance struggled to close down the gap into the final minutes.

Hicks scored 20 of Defiance’s 26 points over the final 14 minutes, including eight points in the final 2:08 of the game to close the gap.

Drew Frizell (Smithville, Ohio/Smithville) and Travis Schomaeker (Ottawa, Ohio/Ottawa-Glandorf) each hit a three to go along with Hicks’ strong run to help Defiance pull Hanover’s lead of 11 points down to two with 12 seconds left.

But the Purple and Gold ran out of time as the Panthers were able to hold on with a pair of free throws and a rebound on a quick shot from DC as the clock ran out.

Reed and Edwards each finished with nine points in the game. Roth finished with seven points.

Hicks led Defiance in rebounds, grabbing six of the team’s 19. It was the lowest team rebounding total of the season by 13 boards for DC. The Yellow Jackets were outrebounded by 11 in the game, the largest deficit of the season and only the second time they were outrebounded.

The loss is the first in conference play for Defiance this season and the second straight after starting the season 8-1.

The Yellow Jackets will look to snap the two-game skid with the first of three straight in the friendly confines of the Weaner Center. Defiance will open up the home stand with a midweek battle against Anderson on Wednesday. The tip is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. | @DC_Athletics | Facebook
