The women’s basketball split their road trip this past weekend. The two-game stretch began with Northern Kentucky University on Friday, Jan. 27. The Golden Grizzlies took down the Norse 61-47. Leah Somerfield led the way with a game-high 17 points and eight rebounds

The Golden Grizzlies were not as successful, however, against the Wright State Raiders on Sunday, Jan. 29. Despite Taylor Gleason’s team-high 16 points, four steals and four assists, and Taylor Jones’ 12 points and season-high eight rebounds, Oakland fell to the Raiders 84-66.

The split road trip brings the Golden Grizzlies to 5-5 in the Horizon League. Oakland returns to the Blacktop to face Green Bay at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2.
