OKLAHOMA CITY- The No. 7 Oklahoma City University Stars (15-2, 6-1 SAC) shined in all aspects of the game, in their 106-41 victory over the Cavs on Thursday night. OCU jumped out to an early lead, and they never let that lead go. In the first half the Stars shot an impressive 65.8 percent and held the Cavaliers to a field goal percentage of only 20 percent. At the end of the game, the Stars finished at 52.5 percent, and the Cavs finished at 25.9 percent. This is nothing out of the ordinary though for OCU, because they are the no. 1 field goal shooting team in the nation (49.9%), and they hold opponents to only 34.5% from the field. Although the Stars shot at such a high percentage, the Cavaliers also turned the ball over 29 times, and 21 of those were via steals for OCU. 45 of the 106 points for the Stars came off of those turnovers. The Cavs were outscored in the paint, 62-14, and their bench was outscored by the Stars bench, 45-16.
The dynamic duo of Daniela's led OCU, by combining for 49 points. Daniela Galindo scored 25 points (11-13 FG), and Daniela Wallen added 24 points (11-15 FG). Allison Frey scored 21 points and collected 6 rebounds. Mariana Duran was a great distributer for the home team, as she dished out 11 assists.
