LEAVENWORTH, KS -- Jasmine Poteete's 18 points led five Central Methodist University double-figure scorers in a 72-67 women's basketball win over Ottawa University on Friday in the Saint Mary Maui-Midwest Classic.

The Eagles (5-0) fell behind by eight points, 19-11, midway through the first half before closing the final 9:54 on a 17-9 spurt. Poteete found Taylor Cornelison in the lane for one of her three assists in the contest, and Cornelison's bucket tied the game at 26-all with 4:10 remaining. Sammie Gathercole converted two free throws for Central Methodist to send both teams to the locker room at halftime tied at 28.

An Amber Ramsey field goal at the 9:57 mark of the second half made the score 53-46 in favor of the Lady Braves (1-5) before an Audrey Patton jumper in the paint triggered a 22-8 scoring onslaught by the Green and Black. A Raylyn Nuss steal turned into a Poteete fastbreak layup, giving Central Methodist the upper hand for good, 56-55, with 6:54 left in the game. The Eagles increased their lead to as many as seven points on three different occasions down the stretch, the last coming on two Nakia Robinson free throws with six seconds left.

Nuss, Gathercole and Robinson finished with 13 points apiece. Nuss also tallied four assists and a game-high four steals. Gathercole had a team-high seven rebounds. Cornelison added 10 points in the victory.

Lauren Buckles led Ottawa with 18 points. Ramsey and April Dowell had 14 and 12, respectively. Ramsey also came up with 11 rebounds in a double-double effort.

Central Methodist hit 42.2-percent (27-of-64) from the field. Ottawa converted 43.9-percent (25-of-57) from the floor.

The Eagles battle tournament-host University of Saint Mary on Saturday. Tipoff is set for 3 p.m. CT.
