Rangers cruise to 62-48 win over Golden Eagles

ALVA, Okla. - Autumn Klugh's 25 points led the Northwestern Oklahoma State University women's basketball team past John Brown in Sooner Athletic Conference play 62-48 on Thursday evening.

Klugh lit the Golden Eagles up from behind the arc shooting 50 percent (7-of-14) accounting for 21 of her game-high 25 points. The senior had five points in the midst of a 9-0 run which saw the Lady Rangers (8-6, 5-4 SAC) move from four down to five ahead.

A Talytha Williams three gave the Lady Rangers a nine-point lead and their largest lead of the half. Audrey Richmond's three near the first-half buzzer extended the Lady Rangers lead to eight.

Klugh's pair of treys fueled an 8-1 run that gave NWOSU a 14-point and complete control of the game.

The Golden Eagles were able to make things interesting with a 10-0 run cutting the NWOSU lead to four and forcing a Stephanie Shaw timeout.

NWOSU responded with a 5-0 run capped by another one of Klugh's threes.

With two minutes to go, Titania Simmons hit a shot to put the Lady Rangers up 15 effectively putting the game out of reach.

The Lady Rangers will return to action on Saturday at 3 p.m. against Rogers State. Be sure to follow the live updates on Twitter at the handle (NWOSUAthletics) and Facebook on the NWOSU Athletics page (Northwestern Oklahoma State University Athletics).
