Flying Queens defeat Mid-America Christian, 83-78

Oklahoma City, OK - Erika Raymond had a game-high 19 points and the Wayland Baptist Flying Queens came from behind to defeat Mid-America Christian University in overtime, 83-78.  The victory moved the Queens to 8-4 on the season and 3-2 in Sooner Athletic Conference play.

Senior guards Edite Kresa and Jessica Walker added 14 points each, and Megan Coats put in 12 for the Wayland women which were down by 11 points (27-16) midway through the first period.  The Queens came back to close the margin to three at the half, 39-33.

Walker's layup after a Raymond steal put WBU on top 44-42 for the first time since early in the opening period.  It was a see-saw battle from that point until MACU went up 65-60 at the 5:15 mark.  The Lady Evangels kept the advantage until Shamon Doss was fouled pulling down an offensive rebound with 13 seconds on the clock.  The senior post nailed both free throws, sending the contest into overtime with the score 71-71.

Raymond scored the first two points of OT with two free throws, and then drained a three on Wayland's next possession to make it 76-73.  Kresa made the next four points on a jumper and two free throws to give WBU a six point advantage, 80-74.

The home team eventually closed the gap back to two, but Walker made one of two from the charity stripe to make a three-point game, and Staci Murphree put the game out of reach with two from the line with just ten ticks on the clock.

Doss was the rebounding leader with nine, while Walker handed out a team-high four assists.  Kresa was credited with four steals.  She and Raymond were both a perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line.

The Queens return to conference play on Monday with a mid-afternoon contest at #7 Oklahoma City University.
