BV women shoot lights out in 84-53 rout of NW

Monday, November 26, 2001

STORM LAKE - When Buena Vista shoots over 40 percent, it can play with anyone.

When the Beavers shoot over 50 percent, it may be safe to say they can't be beat. At least on Tuesday night they couldn't.

Buena Vista shot 58 percent from the field as it rolled to an 84-53 victory over Nebraska Wesleyan at Siebens Fieldhouse.

Buena Vista made 34 of 59 shots in the game. The Beavers were 18 of 31 in the first half and 16 of 28 in the second half.

The Beavers also outrebounded Nebraska Wesleyan 44-29.

Kelli Taylor led the Beavers with 16 points. Amy Meggers scored 14, Allison Schultz 10 and Jennifer Lange nine.

Meggers had eight rebounds, Lange six, and Schultz, Marsha Rupert, Kristina Kapler and Julie Bloyer four apiece.

Taylor handed out five assists and Meggers four.

Nebraska Wesleyan made only 21 of 62 field goals for 34 percent.

Buena Vista also owned the advantage at the free-throw line, making 15 of 20 to Nebraska Wesleyan's 8 of 16.

Buena Vista played Gustavus Adolphus in the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Tournament on Friday night.
