WBB-D2: East Central Tigers (10-13) at Henderson State Reddies (15-10)

Henderson State faces its final opponent from the Sooner State this Saturday when East Central visits the Duke Wells Center on Feb. 18 at 1 p.m.
Henderson pulled away from Southeastern Oklahoma State in the final minute of the game, going 8-8 from the foul line after the Savage Storm had brought the contest within five. HSU went 23-58 (39.7 percent) from the field, while Abbie Jiles and Sonni Martin made teams only two three-pointers.
Ashley Farrar’s 21 points against the Savage Storm puts the senior closer to cracking into the top five of all-time scorers in HSU history. The Green Forest, Ark. native has 1292 total points and is 49 away from tying Reddie legend Aungelique Sledge (1341), who is fifth in career points. Farrar is also six triples away from moving into the top five in career three-point field goals.
The Reddies’ win over the Savage Storm moved them into third place in the league standings. Arkansas Tech was tied with HSU in the conference rankings but was bested by Northwestern Oklahoma State and fell to 11-8 in GAC play. Henderson and ATU will meet in the Duke Wells Center later this month.
HSU won a back-and-forth contest that had 11 lead changes in Ada, Okla. against East Central in the first meeting 66-61. The Reddies and Tigers were tied 58-58 with three minutes left in the game, and Farrar went 6-6 at the foul line to secure the win.  
Henderson trails East Central in the head-to-head matchup 11-14 but has won three consecutive games and five out of the last six contests. HSU’s last home win over ECU came in 2020 when the Reddies beat the Tigers 76-66. Farrar and Gracie Raby were the only current players to feature in the win.
The Tigers’ loss to Ouachita Baptist snapped a seven-game win streak over OUA dating back to 2019.  East Central had won three straight GAC games before falling to the Tigers and is tied with three other teams in the league standings with a 7-12 conference record.
Makenzie Crusoe leads ECU in scoring with 12.9 points a game and is shooting 43.0 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from beyond the arc this season. Against OUA, Crusoe was held to a season-low two points.
East Central’s Emily Wilson leads the GAC in three-point field goal percentage, converting 45.9 percent of her shots from beyond the arc, and the team is scoring 7.2 triples a game. The Tigers are averaging 63.8 points a game and are shooting 37.2 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from deep.
