Lone Star teams break women`s scoring recordPosted by Inside Hoops
InsideHoops.com covers the WNBA, but we don’t do a lot of women’s college hoops stuff. Still, all basketball fans should take 20 seconds to skim this, below:
The AP reports: Jamie Meyer scored 49 points to help Abilene Christian overcome a 63-point effort by Renee Renz and beat Texas Woman’s 147-143 in quadruple overtime on Monday night in a record-setting game. The Division II schools combined to break the NCAA record for points in a game of 261 set by St. Joseph’s (Ind.) and Northern Kentucky in 1988. The 143 points by Texas Woman’s broke the NCAA record for most points by the losing team. The 112 points the two teams scored in the overtimes also was an NCAA record as was Abilene Christian’s 58 in overtime… Renz was 22-of-36 from the field and 15-of-17 from the free throw line. She also had 15 rebounds.
