Pitt State Puts Sting to #1 Emporia State, 84-69 PITTSBURG -- Sophomore forward Janelle Klein scored a career-high 30 points and Pittsburg State University rolled to an 84-69 victory over No. 1-ranked Emporia State University, the last unbeaten team in NCAA Division II, Wednesday (Jan. 12) at John Lance Arena. The Gorillas (10-4, 3-2) never trailed in the game. PSU led by as many as 18 points in the first half against the Lady Hornets (13-1, 4-1 MIAA). ESU, which made just 41.2 percent of its shots (28-68), never got any closer than 10 points of the Gorillas in the second half. PSU shot 58.0 percent from the field in the contest (29-50). The win marked Pitt States first victory over a No. 1-ranked squad, and the Gorillas first win over a nationally-ranked foe since Jan. 7, 2002, when PSU claimed an 84-59 win against a fourth-ranked Emporia State team at John Lance Arena. Senior forward Kami Scrivner, who finished with 18 points, had a career-high 36 points in the previous win against the Hornets during her freshman season. Senior guard Melissa Watkins finished with 15 points and nine rebounds, while sophomore center Maggie Apt also narrowly missed a double-double with 11 points and a game-high nine assists. Klein, who matched her previous career-high with 22 points in PSUs 101-95 road loss to Southwest Baptist University last Saturday (Jan. 8), made 11 of 13 field goal attempts in the game against the Hornets. Nicole Patry had a team-high 21 points for the Lady Hornets. Michelle Stueve also reached double figures with 10 points.
