Olivet Nazarene stays perfect at home, goes 2-0 in tournament

The NAIA Division II women's team at Olivet Nazarene completed a 2-0 run in its own Holiday Inn Express Classic, dispatching St. Catharine College 99-90 Saturday at McHie Arena. The victory ran the Tigers' home mark to 6-0 this season.

Ashley Wilson led the way (again) with 14 points for Olivet Nazarene (9-1), and Miranda Geever (13), Danielle Tolbert (12) and Courtney Allenbaugh (10) all reached double figures, as well. The Tigers finished with 90 shot attempts, including 57 from beyond the arc, and forced 29 turnovers.

Taylor Hames led the way with four of her team's 17 steals.

Olivet Nazarene returns to action in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference next Saturday, when it hosts Calumet College of St. Joseph (5-6, 3-4 CCAC). The Tigers are 6-1 in the conference. Best of luck to them and coach Lauren Stamatis!
