The University of Findlay women's basketball team began their tenure in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) with a dominating 73-51 win over Kentucky Wesleyan College on Nov. 30 in Owensboro, Ky. The victory pushes the Oilers record to 4-1 on the season.
Senior guard Lynsey Englebrecht led the Oilers with a career-high 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting. Englebrecht also set a personal best with eight rebounds and tied her career-high by canning 6-of-10 attempts from behind the three point line.
As a team, the Oilers connected on 51.9 percent (27-of-52) of their field goal attempts and held the Panthers to a mere 28.8 percent (17-of-59) shooting clip. They also out-rebounded the Panthers by a 43-29 margin and dominated in the paint, out-scoring Kentucky Wesleyan 36-14 in the key.
The Oilers will be back at it again on Saturday when they travel to Nashville, Tenn. for a 3 p.m. game against Trevecca Nazarene.
