Lady Rams playing against the Lady Lions at Wesleyans homecoming.

The Lady Rams basketball team played against Langston University (LU) on Feb. 9 at 2:00 p.m. The Lady Rams jumped on the Lady Lions winning the game, 72-56. Saturday’s game also marked homecoming for Texas Wesleyan making the game even more exciting.

Although the Lady Rams went on a losing streak for a few games, they came back stronger adding their sixth winning game in a row after the LU game.

The first couple of minutes of the game were toe-to-toe but the Lady Rams kept pushing the ball as the Lady Lions fell more behind. By the end of the first half, Wesleyan held a 15 point lead 43-28.

Dre’a Davis, senior guard and exercise science major, said this game was the best game she thinks they have played together as a team all year.

“We jumped out on them early and kept the intensity very high,” Dre’a said. “If I’m not mistaking, we never trailed the Lady Lions throughout the entire game.”

Once the second half started, the Lady Rams never allowed LU to get within single digit scoring. Wesleyan also out-rebounded the Lady Lions by 10 boards.

“We were always ahead meaning we were in control of the game mentally and physically,” Davis said. “One thing we have been keying in on day in and day out is mental toughness and it is definitely paying off.”

The Lady Rams will play Feb. 11 for the “Pink Out” game against Bacone College at 5:30 p.m. in the Sid Richardson Center. Come out and support the Lady Rams as they battle for another conference win and against cancer!
