Women's basketball preview: Toledo at Youngstown State

  • Time: 5:15 p.m.

  • Radio: 88.3.

  • Records: UT is 3-1; Youngstown State 2-3.

  • Series: Youngstown State leads 7-6.

  • Last game: UT beat IPFW 64-57; Youngstown State beat Robert Morris 82-68.

  • Outlook: Senior Tia Davis continues to lead the Rockets. She scored a game-high 23 points and added eight rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's home win over IPFW. “Tia's been the spark for us during the initial stages this season,'' coach Mark Ehlen said. UT, shooting just 32.8 percent (64 of 195) in the last three games, limited IPFW to 24.7 percent shooting in the second half, including 1-for-13 from 3-point range. Sophomore guard Jessica Olmstead scored a career-high 20 points and Maggie Johnston added 17 as YSU snapped a three-game losing streak against Robert Morris. Jessica Forsythe added 15 points and 11 rebounds for her first career double-double. YSU lost freshman guard Ashlee Russo for the season due to persistent soreness from a preseason ankle injury. Junior guard Cathy Hanek was lost for the year earlier this season after being diagnosed with an inflammatory arthritis.
