Brooklin Bain made her first two collegiate starts against Cameron and averaged 19.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game for the Eagles. In the game at home on Thursday, she was the Eagles’ second-leading scorer, finishing with 15 points (on 6-of-8 shooting) and six rebounds in a 70-67 loss to the Aggies that went down to the final play. Two days later in Lawton, Bain led an OC squad with only seven available players to a 53-47 win with 24 points and 15 rebounds (the third-highest single-game total this season by a Lone Star Conference player). While playing 38 minutes and 50 seconds, she went 8 of 8 from the free-throw line, including 4 of 4 in the final 40.5 seconds to help seal the win. Her 24 points were the most by an OC freshman since Katie Mayo scored 28 in a win over Texas A&M International on Jan. 11, 2018.

Haevyn Risley played a central role to help Midwestern State overcome a 15-point, second-half deficit to beat previously undefeated Texas A&M-Commerce Sunday afternoon at D.L. Ligon Coliseum. The 5-10 forward from Canadian made three steals and snagged four rebounds playing with four fouls in the fourth period as MSU limited the Lions to 2-of-15 from the field. The Mustangs held the Lions without a field goal over the final 5:48 while mounting a 17-2 run to surge to an 85-82 victory. Risley finished with five points, six rebounds, three steals and a blocked shot.
