Women's Basketball

SOUTHERN OREGON 57, EVERGREEN STATE 39 -- At Ashland, a 22-0 run during the final seven minutes of the first half allowed fifth-ranked Southern Oregon to cruise to a non-conference victory at McNeal Pavilion.

The Raiders (16-3) led Evergreen (3-12) 18-17 when reserve Lauren Mohan triggered the decisive run with a 3-point bucket followed two baskets and a free throw by post Denise Berry.

The five kids we had on the floor at the time played great defense on our press and really hit some big shots, Southern Oregon coach Shirley Huyett. They got things going for us.

The Raiders led 40-19 at the half.

SOU overcame a season-low 26 percent (18-of-69) shooting performance.

Berry led all scorers with 18 points, while Ali Richards tied her career best of nine points, dished out a six assists, had a career-high seven steals and snared six rebounds.

Wrestling

AGGIE OPEN -- At Davis, Calif., Southern Oregon senior Matt Armstrong won the 165-pound title in the 16-school tournament.

Armstrong defeated Adrian Garcia of Cal-Davis, 7-5, in the championship match and beat two NCAA Division I wrestlers along the way.

He wrestled real smart matches, Southern Oregon coach Mike Ritchey said. He didn't give away any points.

Southern Oregon's Ryan Escobar dropped a 15-4 decision to NCAA No. 2-ranked Steven Abas in the 125-pound finals.

It was a little closer than the score indicated, said Ritchey. He kept coming in on the short end of the scrambles. It was good experience for Ryan.

Freshman Brad Gray of Eagle Point defeated teammate Dan Sturgell 5-2 for third place at 184. Gray is the 14th SOU wrestler to qualify for the NAIA nationals with his performance in the tournament.

Senior Jamie Haddon (197) also finished third in his division.
