The Oswego State women’s basketball team kicked off the Max Ziel Tournament with a 66-27 win over Medgar Evers College Friday night. With the victory, the Lakers move to 1-1 on the season while also giving head coach Sean Pinkerton the first win of his Oswego career. The Medgar Evers Cougars remain winless as they fall to 0-2.
Unlike their first game of the season in which the offense struggled, Oswego was able to start the game on an 8-0 run against the Cougars. The dominance on offense would continue for the Lakers as they led 32-8 going into halftime. Tatyana Fish led the team with eight points in the first half and finished with 13. Her teammate, Courtney Ameele also contributed a game high fifteen points to go along with five steals.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Lakers hauled in 58 rebounds with Morgan Wolanin grabbing a career-high 12 of them. Rachel Windhausen was just as effective as she had eight rebounds and three blocks.
Oswego will be back in action tomorrow as they try to capture the Max Ziel Tournament title at 4 pm against Elmira College.
