  • On Saturday, the Pratt Community College women’s basketball team picked up right where they had left off before the holidays— kicking posteriors and taking names. For the second time this season, the PCC bested Tonkawa, this time in the Lady Mavs’ back yard. The score this time was 95-70, a more decisive victory than the 6-point margin achieved by the Lady Beavers at home back in November. The game was pretty even until the first half media timeout. From that point, PCC outscored the Lady Mavs by 13 to turn a 3-point deficit into a 10-point lead at the break. Maddie Pendry was en fuego in the first half, raining in 3-balls with regularity to help her to 17 first half points. Tatiana Grant scored well also, converting 12/18 field goals on the night. The Mavs only answer for Grant was to foul her. Tatiana foiled that strategy by drilling 13/16 free throws on her way to a 37- point effort. Pendry found herself in foul trouble after intermission, but Keri Devlin and Karissa Pena picked up the scoring slack with Pendry riding the pine. Pena put up 15 points on the night and Devlin 10, mostly in the second half. Pena earned herself a double-double, as she also led the Lady Beavers in rebounding with 10. Grant had 9 boards and Lanina Spence 8 as PCC dominated Tonkawa on the glass 42-25. Rebounding and shooting were two big factors in the PCC win. The Lady Beavers had the hot hand as they hit 4/8 50% from 3-pt. land; 29/44 66% from the charity stripe; and an impressive 32/56 57% from the field. Another key stat was turnover-to-assist ratio as PCC was 22-24 while Tonkawa was just 21-16. With a lofty mark of 13-2, the Lady Beavers now move into the conference portion of their schedule, hosting Butler County on Wednesday with tip-off at 6:00 p.m. Kari Devlin 10, Tatiana Grant 37, Maddie Pendry 18, Karissa Pena 15, Spence 7, Luckett 5, Stein 5
