SAINT MARY OF THE WOODS, Ind. -- In the 14th edition of This Week In Pomeroy Sports | TWIPS, let's take a glance at how the western equestrian and hunt seat teams finished at their shows this week and dig into the tough competition our women's basketball team has faced.

Also, we would love to take a moment and wish you an early Happy Thanksgiving from the SMWC Athletic Department, we are extremely grateful to all of our coaches, student-athletes, fans, and all else who support Pomeroy Athletics.

We have all of last week's action below!

Women's Basketball

Women's basketball is off to a rough start to the 2019 season holding a 1-7 (.125) overall record. The Pomeroys have lost four games straight and have had difficulty eliminating turnovers averaging 27.4 per game.

This week, SMWC lost to Eureka College 96-78 and Ohio Christian University 125-73. 

From three-point range, the Pomeroys have struggled as a team shooting only 25.8% but continue to fire shots up taking 49.9 three-point attempts per game.

Defensively, a bright spot has been their steals per game as they average 12.3. Nonetheless, SMWC is giving up an average of 103.4 points per game and their opponent's shooting average is 44.7% from the field.

Since their victory against Brescia University on November 9th, SMWC has been outscored 401-to-293.

Natalie Nickless leads the team with 9.5 points per game and has been the Pomeroys go-to three-point shooter! She has hit 18-57 from three-point land. Paeytn Hayes is just behind Nickless as she averages 9.3 points per contest.

Avalee Jeffers and Reagan Hubbard lead the defense with a combined total steal mark of 25 (Jeffers - 14, Hubbard - 11).

On the glass, Jayla Rogers has been bust averaging 7.6 rebounds per game.
