  • Despite a breakout performance by freshman Ayrionna Taylor, the St. Gregory's University women's basketball team dropped a road contest at Oklahoma Wesleyan, 66-64, Tuesday night. The Lady Cavaliers trimmed a 14-point, second-half deficit to one with less than a minute to play but couldn't convert on an opportunity to win it. Taylor, a 5-10 guard from Detroit, Mich., scored a career-high 22 points in the loss. SGU (1-2) took its only lead of the game in the opening minute at 3-0. OKWU then hit four of its next six shots during a 16-2 run to take control early. The Eagles led by eight at halftime after shooting 56 percent from the field and 70 percent from 3-point range in the first half. Taylor hit nine of 17 shots from the field. Kylee Tatum chipped in with 14 points, and Kalie Lucas finished with 10 points and six boards. The Lady Cavs shot just 37 percent from the field for the game but forced 21 Eagle turnovers. SGU returns to action Saturday at East Central University. That game is scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. tip. Note: Report provided by Brad Collins, SGU sports information director.
