BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Grand Island native Cassie Oursler poured in a team high 25 points while Stephanie Reid added 23 as the UB Women’s Basketball team picked up it’s fifth straight win, a 97-92 thriller over Eastern Michigan in overtime.
Oursler also set a new career high with 13 rebounds — and the Bulls needed every single one against the Eagles — as they battled to improve to 15-3 overall and 6-1 in the MAC.
Leading 80-73, EMU scored the final seven points in regulation to force overtime, including five from Danielle Minott who tallied a game-high 44 points.
Trailing 89-88 in the extra session, Oursler sparked an 8-0 run to help push UB to victory.
The Bulls will look to make it six straight wins Wednesday night when they travel to Central Michigan.
