Women Lose Tough Fought Game

Siloam Springs, Ark. (January 25, 2007) — John Brown women’s basketball fell 63-52 on the road to # 25 Southern Nazarene (Okla.) on Thursday night. Tejana Elmore led SNU with 15 points, while JBU’s Ashley Wettengel had a game high 19 points.

Down only one at the half (31-30), John Brown (5-12, 2-4) came out strong exchanging leads several times in first ten minutes of the half. However, Southern Nazarene (14-3, 5-1) was able to secure the win by hitting free-throws down the stretch. SNU shot nearly 50 percent for the game; meanwhile, John Brown continued to struggle shooting only 27 percent from the floor.

The women will return to action on Saturday when they host Oklahoma Christian (13-3, 6-1) at 6 p.m.
