Megan Kuether poured in 34 points and Taylor Dickson added 33 as the Ohio Wesleyan women’s basketball team used a late push to sink visiting Wooster 101-94 in double overtime Wednesday at Branch Rickey Arena.
With the game knotted at 89 heading into the second extra period, the Bishops (2-11, 1-3 NCAC) outscored Wooster (5-8, 1-3 NCAC) 12-5 to notch their first conference win of the season.
Kuether hit a pair of free throws to put OWU ahead to stay, 93-91, and Dickson finished off an old-fashioned three-point play on the ensuing possession to give the Bishops the cushion they needed to finally finish off the Fighting Scots.
Seth Clark scored a team-best 16 points, including three three-pointers, Ben Simpson added 14 and Will Orr scored 12 off the bench as Ohio Wesleyan handled host Wittenberg 77-70 Wednesday night.
The Bishops (11-1, 4-1 NCAC) outscored the Tigers (8-4, 3-2 NCAC) 38-25 in the first half to set the tone.
