The women stifled John Brown defensively winning 62-48. Along with the defense, Autumn Klugh lit up the Golden Eagles hitting seven threes en route to a game-high 25 points.
The Lady Rangers (8-6, 5-4 Sooner Athletic Conference) will face a challenge as the Hillcats have cracked the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball poll at No. 25.
The Rangers are coming off a tough 104-101 overtime loss against No. 20 John Brown. Jonathan Freemyer's 30 points had the Rangers (7-9, 4-5 SAC) poised to take the contest, but Golden Eagles guard Abel Galliguez was too much to handle. Galliguez scored 31 and hit two clutch threes in the last two minutes to send the game to overtime.
Things won't get any easier for the Rangers as the Hillcats come in ranked No. 8 in the NAIA Division I Men's Basketball poll. The game will be the second consecutive game against a ranked opponent for Andrew Brown's crew.
