Her previous career-high was 11, and she hadn’t scored more than eight this season. Agosto isn’t the Eagles’ most frequent shooter, but she has shot a team-high 36.4% from 3-point range this season.

For Ohio, Edecia Beck has come on strong over the last few games. She got her first start of the season Saturday against Central Michigan and didn’t disappoint with a season-high 12 points. As her role grows, she will pose more of a problem for opposing teams.
