FULTON, MO -- Blake French scored 17 of her season-high 19 points in the second half to lead the William Woods University women's basketball team to a 68-57 American Midwest Conference victory over Harris-Stowe State University on Saturday afternoon.

With the game tied at 35 midway through the second half, French went on a 5-0 run to give the Owls a 40-35 lead. The sophomore connected on one of three second half three-point shots giving the Owls the lead at 38-35. On the inbounds she stole the ball from Alexis Minner and took it to the basket to extend the lead to 40-35.

Harris-Stowe would respond with a three-point basket by KeAris Vaughn to bring the game back within two points at 40-38. William Woods countered Vaughn's trifecta with a 9-0 run, capped off by another French three-point basket to give them an 11-point lead at 49-38. WWU would not relinquish the lead and held on for the 68-57 victory.

Junior Priscila Santos led all scorers on the afternoon with 23 points, while French recorded the only other double-digit performance for the Owls with 19.

Harris-Stowe had four of its six players score double figures with Shanique Buford recording a double-double with 18 points and a game-high 19 rebounds. The Hornets were able to outrebound the Owls at 43-42.

The victory keeps the Owls AMC record perfect at 2-0. WWU stands at 11-1 overall on the year. Harris-Stowe is still looking for its first conference win as they fall to 0-2 and 3-11 overall on the year.

William Woods will be back in action on Thursday at Hannibal-LaGrange. Tipoff is set for 5:30 p.m.
