Women's Basketball: Numbers to know from Ohio's 81-64 win over Fordham

Ohio extended its season Saturday afternoon with an 81-64 win over Fordham in the first consolation round of the WNIT in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Bobcats will play UMass in the second round Monday.

Here are the numbers to know from Ohio’s 81-64 win:


CeCe Hooks once again led the Bobcats in scoring, this time with 23 points. Hooks, the Mid-American Conference Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, averaged over 26 points in the regular season. She led Ohio’s production for most of the season without co-star Erica Johnson in the lineup due to a knee injury.

Hooks shot 10-for-15 from the field and went two-of-three from beyond the arc in her game-leading 23-point performance. She was helped by Gabby Burris and Johnson, who each scored 19 points.


Caitlyn Kroll led the Bobcats with 11 rebounds in the win. Kroll has been a huge contributor on the boards for Ohio this season, averaging 5.2 rebounds. Kroll also had two assists and a steal in the win. While the Bobcats were outrebounded 40-36, they still had strong contributions from Hooks, who had nine rebounds, and Burris and Johnson, who had two each.


Freshman Kendall Hale scored a career-high seven points in her nine minutes on the floor. Hale, who left high school early to join the Bobcats, scored her first career points Saturday. Hale shot three-of-four from the field and made her only free throw attempt. Hale joins her sister, Jasmine, on the team this season as two promising players for the future of Ohio’s program.
