Over their last three games the Express Women’s Basketball team have won by an average margin of 33.67 points.

Undeterred by the fact that opposing teams have rosters that hold at least 11 players, the seven sedulous women who comprise this year’s team will fight to the end of every game.

The Owens Women’s Basketball team prides themselves on playing a physical brand of basketball. They are able to score inside often and love to be sent to the charity stripe for easy points.

Two players, Taylor Works and Whitney Thames, have earned a top five spot in the nation for free throws made through their first seven games with 36 points each.

Unfortunately for first-year head coach Stephen Perry, he shoulders more adversity than just what comes with the pressures of creating a successful season. Games played at home have consisted of nearly empty gyms.

The Student Health and Activities Center at Owens Community College rarely sees more than a few fans at the games played there despite having had multiple Express teams receive national rankings over the years. This past weekend the contest against Lorain County Community College was unfortunately no different.

The Owens community is slacking on support of a team that has been nothing short of outstanding. Perry has had an impressive amount of success with his team thus far and if that continues, hopefully it will translate into larger crowds at the Student Health and Activities Center where Express home games are played.

Cuyahoga Community College comes to play at Owens for the first home game after the holiday break on Wednesday November 28th at 5:30.
