#5 Women's Basketball Extends Streak To Six, Take Down Johnson University

Knoxville, TN - The Lady Owls extended their win streak to 6 with a road win over Johnson University 73-62.

The Owls had a sluggish first half where they found themselves down 13 but would put together a 25 point turn around in the second half to secure the win. The Owls forced the Lady Royals into 22 turnovers and finished the game with 13 steals.

Danaisa Dumas led the way with 24 points and she was followed by Amber Godfrey with 11 and KJ McKoy with 10. 

"This was a much needed win as it improved the Owls record to 11-11 on the season. We have to get better this week as we head into a big match up with Johnson and Wales on Saturday. We have to find that energy and intensity we are known for having," stated head coach Robin Martin.

The Owls are back in action Saturday when they face EMAC rival Johnson and Wales University. The Owls knocked off the Wildcats earlier this season and are looking to sweep the season series. Tip-off is scheduled for 3:00 P.M.
