FAYETTE, MO -- A block by Central Methodist University's Jasmine Poteete with 44 seconds left in the game preserved a 61-60 victory over No. 23-ranked William Woods University on Tuesday evening inside Puckett Field House.

The Eagles (7-0) took down the Owls (4-1) with a stifling defensive attack, deploying a full court press during the second half and rotating three to five players every couple of minutes. William Woods shot 43.9-percent (25-of-57) from the field but only 4-of-17 (23.5-percent) from behind the arc.

The win also avenges a 55-51 overtime loss to then No. 23-ranked William Woods on October 31, 2011.

The Owls held a 10-5 lead off a Stephanie Copelin bucket at the 12:54 mark of the first half, as neither team led by more than seven points. Trailing 12-7, Central Methodist put together an 11-2 run in the span of 4:46, as a Sammie Gathercole trey made the score 18-14. However, the visitors took a 28-23 advantage into halftime.

Trailing 40-32 with 14:07 remaining in the game, an 8-0 run changed the tide of the contest in the home team's favor. Nakia Robinson and Raylyn Nuss hit back-to-back shots from distance to tie the game at the 12:51 mark.

The Eagles then turned up the defensive pressure, holding William Woods to only four points in nearly a five minute span. Towanda Sutton, in her first game back this season from injury, scored two of her team-high 11 points with a bucket at the 7:56 mark to put the Green and Black up 51-44.

The Owls answered and knotted the game at 56-all off a made bucket by Copelin, but an offensive rebound and old-fashioned three-point play by Central Methodist's Britney Joseph with 1:15 on the clock put her team ahead for good.

Sutton finished with a double-double (11 points, 10 rebounds). Joseph narrowly missed a double-double night with nine points and game-high 12 rebounds, including seven on the offensive glass.

Nuss and Kyra Williams had eight points apiece. Poteete, Robinson and Gathercole each had six as 10 players recorded at least 10 minutes of action in the game.

Copelin tallied 15 points in the losing effort. Katie Scherder and Julia Wells had 14 and 13 points, respectively.

Central Methodist outrebounded William Woods 47-39, including 23-10 on the offensive boards.

The Eagles travel to NCAA Division I Chicago State University on Monday, November 26. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. CT.
