Owens women advance

KIRTLAND, Ohio - Owens Community College avenged last week's defeat at Lakeland CC with a 68-47 triumph over the Lakers yesterday in the semifinals of the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference women's basketball tournament.

Michelle Vorst led the Express (20-9) with 17 points; teammates Laura Wilson and Shannon Kubicek added 13 and 11, respectively.

Jen Brozak was high for the Lakers (17-12) with 11 points.

Lakeland had edged Owens 77-74 last week on a disputed 3-pointer at the final buzzer.

Owens plays regular-season champion Cincinnati State (27-3) in the championship game today at 2 p.m. The two teams split regular-season meetings.


OWENS 119,


Kevin Shorter scored 24 points and Dajuan Tate and Kevin Thomas had 23 each for Owens (26-4) against the Siena Heights junior varsity.

LOUISVILLE: Louisville's leading rebounder Ellis Myles had knee surgery and will miss the rest of the season. The 6-8 junior forward ruptured his right patella tendon, and coach Rick Pitino said Myles may never play college basketball again.

Myles was averaging 7.9 rebounds and was one of the team's best passers.

He was injured while going for a rebound late in Thursday night's loss to Marquette.

Louisville is also facing an NCAA inquiry of senior center Marvin Stone and his ties to an AAU team in the late 1990s. Stone practiced yesterday but his status for the rest of the season remained uncertain.
