East Central University Basketball Notebook

Ada —  


The Game

The East Central University women’s basketball team will be hitting the court against its arch rival Southeastern Oklahoma State, Thursday, Jan. 24 after having a week off. Tip-off is set for 5:30 p.m. at the Kerr Activities Center and is the annual Blackout Game.


Scouting Southeastern

The Savage Storm are 6-9 overall and 4-5 in the Great American Conference after earning a 77-67 win over Southern Nazarene in their last outing.

Southeastern has three players that are averaging double-digit point totals and a fourth that is netting 9.4 points per game this season. All four players have taken over 100 shot attempts, with the next highest total on the team being 64.

Bailey Welch has an 11.2 points and 3.3 rebounds per game average on the season, while also adding 56 assists. Ronay English averages 10.8 points and 2.9 rebounds, while Haley Schaefer is contributing 10.2 points and 6.1 boards per game.

The Savage Storm have strong (.404) overall and (.312) three-point shooting percentages, but still have a -7.3 points margin. Their opponents are hitting .410 of their shots and .307 of the triples. Part of the reason for the difference is that Southeastern has taken 150 fewer shots on the season.

The Lady Tigers will have to watch out for a second-half surge from the Savage Storm. Southeastern has scored 100 more points in the second stanza and allowed 30 fewer by the opposition. However, they are being out-scored by 121 points in the first half.


Against the Savage Storm

Last year the teams each earned a win on their home courts and kept the games very close. The tight outcomes showed in the box score, where the teams were even in most categories. The key difference was in three-point shooting. The Lady Tigers shot .186 (8-of-43) from beyond the arc, while the Savage Storm was 19-of-72 (.264).

The key returners for ECU were Kodi Morrison, Ashley Robison and Regan Browne. All three averaged nine points per game, with Morrison adding 5.0 rebounds and Robison contributing 7.5 boards per game.
