Muskingum University’s Womens Basketball team had a power struggle against Kenyon on Nov. 17.

Having the lead for most of the first three quarters, Muskingum finished with a loss in the fourth quarter, 66-62.

“We saw some great things out of our team, but we definitely have some work to do,” said Head Coach Beth Fox.

Keeping momentum, the team took some successful shots from the free-throw line; in addition they controlled their turnovers but overall, their weak point was rebounding.

Despite their loss, Fox viewed the mistakes in the game as easy fixes to be worked on throughout the remainder of the season.

“There were definitely things we can improve on,” said Fox. “I don’t think we got outplayed, I don’t think they’re a better team than us. I think we just have to fix some little things.”

By the end of the fourth quarter, the team neglected moves that resulted in their crushing loss.

“I think we stopped doing the hard things,” said Fox. “We knew who their shooters were, we had them defended, just not as aggressively as we would’ve wanted them to. Then, we didn’t convert on some easy looks,” said Fox.

Fox considered the game a learning experience for the girls.

The team returns to action Nov. 20 and 21 at the Allegheny Tournament.
