Feb. 11 – GREENVILLE, Pa. – After two halves filled with seven tied scores and nine lead changes, the Bethany College women’s basketball team triumphed over host Thiel in overtime by a score of 91-87 Saturday, a win that also featured senior Anne Wilson (Saegertown, Pa./Cambridge Springs) scoring her 1,000th career point.
The Bison offense lagged behind Thiel (6-17, 6-10) for most of the first half until sophomore guard Skylar Williams (Jefferson Hills, Pa./Thomas Jefferson) netted a three-pointer with nearly four minutes to play to tie the score 27-27. Senior guard Anne Wilson (Saegertown, Pa./Cambridge Springs) scored seven of the Bison’s next nine points to follow, giving the team the lead at the half 36-31.
Bethany, now 14-9 and 10-6 in the PAC, is one win away from sealing their fourth place mark in the league standings and a first round home game in the PAC Tournament. BC will return home to host Westminster Wednesday evening for their final home game during the regular season and the program will honor its five seniors prior to tip-off, which is scheduled for 6 p.m.
