The Ashland University women's basketball team jumped out to a 19-2 first half lead over Lake Erie College Saturday afternoon at Kates Gymnasium enroute to an 84-42 win over the Storm.  The win pushed the Eagle ladies to 22-0 on the season, 15-0 in the GLIAC.  Ashland led at the half 44-18, but to begin the second half, the Eagles seemed lethargic turning the ball over and going without scoring for nearly three minutes.  That was when coach Sue Ramsey decided it was time for a pep talk of sorts, telling her team to start playing AU basketball.

The talk apparently worked as the team outscored the Storm 40-24 in the second half, much of which by the nine minute mark was played by AU's bench.  The Eagles were led by Alyssa Miller and Taylor Woods who each had 16 points.  Daiva Gerbec had 11, Kaci Finfrock 10 and Ashley Dorner eight.  As a team, the Eagles hit nine three pointers and went 17 of 21 from the line.

The win over Lake Erie College (3-15, 1-14) marks the 12th time this season the number 1 ranked AU women have scored  80 or more points and also marks the team's 47 consecutive regular season win.   Ashland will be back on the floor Thursday evening at Kates Gymnasium against Walsh at 7:30pm.  AU won the first time around back on January 10th, 79-53.
