MONMOUTH, Ore. --- California Baptist University posted a second consecutive win to open the season on Saturday, defeating tournament host Western Oregon 69-60 behind a monster double-double from Jasmine Beverly.

Beverly dropped a game high 25 points and 13 rebounds to lead CBU past the home team, despite all five Wolves' starters scoring in double figures.

"Jasmine really sparked us in the second half," said CBU Head Coach Jarrod Olson. "She did a great job not only leading us in scoring, but bringing a ton of energy and effort. Myriah Hicks also had another solid game. Her free throw shooting was crucial late in the game."

In a game that was tied seven times and had six lead changes, CBU outlasted WOU hitting eight straight free throws in the final minute to hold off the Wolves.

WOU went up 52-51 with just over five minutes to play, but CBU rattled off eight straight points to take a 59-52 lead.

Jasmine Sauser took back the advantage for the Lancers with a lay-in and then off of a Beverly steal, Brittney Lewis took the ball in for another layup forcing a Wolves timeout. Out of the stoppage Beverly and Hicks hit back-to-back baskets giving CBU the seven point lead.

The closest WOU would get was five points the rest of the way, as CBU was clutch from the charity stripe down the stretch. Hicks hit four of the last eight foul shots.

CBU forced 25 Wolves turnovers in the game, getting three steals from both Beverly and Lewis. The Lancers also outshot WOU from the free throw line, hitting 84 percent of their foul shots to just 61.5 percent for the Wolves.

Sauser and Hicks also scored in double figures for CBU as each contributed 14 points in the game.

Dana Goularte led the balanced attack for the Wolves, scoring 13 points. Melissa Fowler had 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Nine of Beverly's 13 boards came on the offensive end as CBU had 17 offensive boards in the game.

"We're just excited to get out of her with two victories and start the season on a winning note," said Olson.

The Lancers move to 2-0 on the season, while WOU opens the year 0-1. CBU heads to Colorado now for showdowns next weekend against Colorado State-Pueblo and Western State.
