TIFFIN, Ohio - There was not much that could stop Tiffin women's basketball on Thursday night, as the Dragons scored a program-record 108 points en route to a 108-84 victory over the visiting Ohio Valley Fighting Scots.
Allie Miller led TU with a career-high 25 points and five steals, while Jasmine Watts recorded a double-double with a career-high 14 points and ten boards. After being out since Dec. 8 due to injury, Annie Santucci returned in fine form with 14 points and four assists. That trio played a huge part in Tiffin scoring a 61 points off the bench, while the starters recorded 47.
Tiffin eclipsed their best shooting mark of the season by hitting 36-69 (52.2%) from the field. The Dragons also took 36 foul shots, making 28 for a rate of 77.8%. TU outrebounded Ohio Valley 45-40 and dished out 20 assists to OVU's 12.
As mentioned, the 108 points is a new Tiffin women's basketball record, surpassing the previous mark of 100 that was achieved on three separate occasions, most recently in Dec. 2005 against Ohio Dominican.
With their third-straight win, the Dragons improve to 6-12 overall and 3-9 in the G-MAC.
Tiffin led from start-to-finish, jumping out to an early 11-4 lead on a Santucci triple. Moments later, another Santucci three extended the lead to 23-9 with three minutes left in the opening quarter. Ohio Valley made a small run to end the quarter, cutting the deficit to 29-20.
The Fighting Scots clawed back to within three, 35-32, with 7:05 to play in the half, but a 21-10 Dragon run to close the half put the home team up 56-42 at the break.
Tiffin's advantage stayed up in double-digits the rest of the way, and it was Miller's three from the corner with 2:58 remaining in the game that broke the single-game points record. The Dragons led by as many as 25 before it was all said and done, taking the 24-point win.
TU will look to extend their winning streak to four games on Saturday when they host Ohio Dominican at 1:00 p.m.
