NEWBERG, OR - In a game that had little doubt from the start the #3 George Fox University Bruins glided to an easy 83-25 victory over Penn State Abington in their first round of the Div III Women's Basketball National Championship bracket game at Wheeler Sports Center on the campus of GFU.

The Bruins opened the game on a 10-0 run that lasted until the 15:48 mark of the first half when the Lady Lions were finally able to score a bucket. George Fox used a combination of man and zone defenses to rattle and keep Penn State Abington in an offensive funk all night long.

Following that 2-points the Bruins would again go on another 10-0 run to put the game well outta reach with 13:35 left in the first half. It was truly a dominating effort on both ends.

George Fox continued to put the pressure on the Lady Lions and at the half lead by a score of 41-11.

The Bruins would continue to stretch that lead out over the 2nd hallf employing a much more aggressive full court trapping press that turned Penn State Abington over early and often. Those turnovers lead to break away buckets for GFU and the relentless pressure never subsided in the Bruins 83-25 victory.

The only weak spot for the Bruins was their shooting percentage as they shot just 39.4% from the field including only 25% from beyond the arc. But, they did draw plenty of free throws on the night going 24 for 37 for 64.9% and only giving up 1 for 5 to Penn State Abington.

The road for George Fox gets much tougher tomorrow night as they host NWC rival Puget Sound in a highly anticipated re-match of the NWC Championship Game.
