After struggling the entire first half, down by as much as 12, third-ranked Lady Pioneers sent Wesleyan's Lady Bobcats home squalling in defeat by a 97-76 margin.

Five from the Glenville squad scored in double figures. Mishae Miles notched a double-double effort with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Miles dominated the inside on offense, repeatedly getting open underneath, scoring with deadly accuracy shooting over 90-percent from the floor hitting 10 of 11 attempts.

Outside, Autumn Davis' string of triples added what amounted to a one-two knockout punch to Wesleyan. Davis shot 71-percent from outside hitting for 5 of 7.

The game was a late season conference showdown as Wesleyan held the forth-ranked position coming into Thursday night's contest. The Lady Pioneers are in a three-way race for the top spot with West Liberty and Charleston. Glenville's conference record improves to 15-6.

FIRST HALF BLUES - THEN REDEMPTION

For most of the first half, save the 40-seconds the game was tied at 22 near the midway mark, it looked like the Lady Bobcats could break the game wide open. Glenville struggled just to stay in the game down by as much as 12 in the early going.

You might say the basketball was willing to go anywhere but in the basket for the home team. Shooting 28-percent from the floor and hitting on 3 of 18 three-pointers the buzzer at the half found them down by nine 43-34.

As the second half got underway it appeared the menu was more of the same. The Lady Pioneers gained no ground for the initial four minutes ... still down by 10.

Then the tide began to change.

For the first time, the Lady Pioneers took the lead with 12:30 remaining 59-57 and never looked back.

Less than two minutes later the game flip-flopped and Glenville was up by 11, 70-59. In the second half the Lady Pioneers shot 49-percent from the floor and nailed 53-percent of their triple attempts.

They'll be looking to hold-on to the "second half" magic they found Saturday when they go back on the road meeting the University of Charleston at 6 p.m.
