KLAMATH FALLS, Ore—Western Oregon’s dominance of Oregon Tech ended Monday night at Danny Miles Court, as the Owls women’s basketball team won for just the third time in 29 attempts against the Wolves.

Led by 14 points from Megan Morris and 12 points and eight rebounds from freshman Amanda Constant, OIT extended its winning streak to two to get to 7-5 on the season.

More importantly, it was a win against an NCAA Division II team, which Constant said will boost morale even more as the Owls re-enter conference play.

"I think it's a confidence booster for sure,” Constant said. “We did have a little losing streak for a little while, four games, but we came back for two wins. It was really importance for us to get this before we go into conference this week and on Saturday. It's going to make our team a lot stronger and send a message to everyone we're playing."

Oregon Tech returns to action this weekend in Washington with games against the Evergreen State College and Northwest University. The Owls won’t return home until December 29 when they take on Multnomah.
