Capital stuns WC women in OAC contest 57-43


News Journal Report



COLUMBUS — Regan Stonerock came off the Capital bench with 15 points and 14 rebounds to lead a stunning upset of Wilmington 57-43 Wednesday night in Ohio Athletic Conference action at The Capital Center at Capital University.

The loss puts Wilmington at 7-5 overall and 4-2 in the OAC. WC has lost 3 straight games after winning 3 in a row.

Capital is 5-8 overall and now 1-5 in the conference.

After Wilmington scored the first basket of the game, the Crusaders scored the next 18 points and never looked back. WC made just 1 of 13 shots in the opening frame and lost the rebounding battle 12-5.

“We were not ready to play,” said Wilmington head coach Jerry Scheve. “We were not ready to compete at the level we needed to tonight and that was for a lot of different reasons. We simply were not ready to play. Capital played harder than we did.”

Wilmington, who hit just 4 of 13 from the floor in the second period, made it a 22-16 game in the third quarter when Ashley Andracki drained a 3-pointer at the 9:18 mark.

But Capital hit 16 of 18 free throws and Wilmington simply couldn’t buy a bucket. The Fightin’ Quakers were 8 of 15 at the line for the night and 16 for 51 from the field. Of the 19 shots beyond the arc, Wilmington made just 3.

“Basketball is a simple game that our team plays well. We just didn’t do it tonight,” Scheve concluded.

Mackenzie Campbell led WC with 18 points. Mary Moyer had a team-best 7 rebounds and was among a trio of players with 2 assists.

Wilmington will have its hands full again Saturday when Baldwin-Wallace, 4-1 in league play, visits Hermann Court. Tip-off at Fred Raizk Arena is scheduled for 3 p.m.
