The MSU women wasted no time getting a lead on Saturday afternoon over Eastern New Mexico and had even less problems holding onto the lead, cruising to a 75-44 victory at Ligon Coliseum.

The crucial stretch came just minutes into the contest, as the Mustangs (10-5, 2-2) went on a 10-0 run in a matter of 96 seconds, putting ENMU (3-8, 1-1) in a 12-2 hole with 16 minutes left in the first half.

Junior guard Lisa Hampton was dialed in from downtown, connecting on 4-7 from 3 point land, finishing with 18 points. Andrea Carter and Kirsti Degelia combined to pour in 31 points for MSU.

“It was nice to get back to Wichita and play at home. This will help us get back on track heading into the heart of conference play,” said MSU assistant coach Christopher Reay. “Scoring like we did was great. It helps us succeed defensively and builds confidence.”

The defense was on track all night, forcing 23 Zia turnovers and converting those into 34 points. The Mustangs also held Eastern New Mexico to just 30% shooting from the floor.

The Mustang women hit the court next on Wednesday,January 15, against LSC rival Tarleton State. Tip-off is set for 5:30pm. You can follow the Mustangs at
