Highest scoring women's game in Tiger history

Fort Hays State University sophomore Beth Bohuslavsky is a steady, smart point guard who plays solid defense and makes few mistakes. However, Bohuslavsky never scored in double figures in her first 32 games as a Tiger. On Tuesday, Bohuslavsky bettered that in the first half against Newman University with 10 points, including four layups in the first six minutes.

In addition, sophomore Taylor Chandler continued to showcase her improved all-around offensive game, junior center Kate Lehman and senior forward Katelyn Edwards delivered their normal double-doubles, senior Tera Ingalsbe had 18 points and a host of other Tigers contributed.

Fort Hays led by 30 at halftime and 35 midway through the second half and defeated the Jets, 114-86, at Gross Memorial Coliseum in the highest scoring women's basketball game in school history. It broke the mark of 195 set in a 101-94 loss to Pittsburg State University on Feb. 1, 1986.

The Tigers nearly broke the school record for points of 116, set on Nov. 15, 2006 in the season opener against NAIA Stephens College.

"We are a lot different team than last year," Bohuslavsky said. "Obviously, we are scoring a lot more. We have more outside threats, which opens up the inside for us for Kate Lehman, Kate Edwards, Tera even to drive. But defensively, we have got to pick it up. But 200 points, that's unbelievable."

Fort Hays, a 22-7 team a year ago, moved to 4-0 and is receiving votes in the NCAA Division II poll. Newman dropped to 2-4.

Edwards (18 points, 10 rebounds) and Ingalsbe tied for the team high. Lehman collected 17 points and 14 rebounds, while Bohuslavsky tallied 17, sophomore guard Chelsea Mason had 15 off the bench and Chandler finished with 12. Fort Hays, which averaged 70 points per contest in '12-13, has scored 94, 109, 78 and 114 in wins this winter.

"Last year, I thought we were very effective offensively, but people basically knew that it was going to come from one of the Kates in the post or maybe Traci Keyser from the outside," coach Tony Hobson said. "Sometimes they could lock us down, and we wouldn't be able to get out of that. Now, we have several more threats, and we do a good job of getting the ball moved around, and whoever is open, hits the shot."

Newman had lost 68-59 to No. 4 Emporia State University and also fell by two to Rockhurst. But Hobson thought the Hornets, a strong outside shooting team, missed many wide-open looks.

"They were getting the shots, so I thought if we would push it, we would get the shots, it was just a matter of knocking some of them down," Hobson said.

Bohuslavasky has taken advantage of the new rules designed to make block/charge calls simpler and lessen hand-checking to increase scoring. Bohuslavsky tallied her first points on a layup off a steal for a 7-5 lead at the 17-minute mark.

"If you have got a lane, you might as well take the defense because 90 percent of the time, it's going to be a foul on them, unless you are way out of control. We can hit free throws and pack the lane all day because they are going to foul," she said.

Nineteen seconds later, Newman sophomore Alexandra Ciabattoni (game-high 28 points) scored on a jumper and Edwards drew her second foul.

Instead of subbing out Edwards, Hobson kept her in with two fouls.

Edwards scored the next two baskets and FHSU never trailed again.

"I trust Kate, she is a smart enough player that I felt that we could leave her in there and change tactics a little bit and keep her out of foul trouble," Hobson said.

In a 49-second stretch, Bohulavsky scored three layups.

The first two times, Bohuslavsky beat the defense down the floor. The third time, she started on the right side and then split the defense down the middle.

"They can't stop a person going 50 mile an hour," she said. "You just can't stop a person like that.

"It's going to be a foul on them every time, especially if they have their hands on us trying to get to the ball, so you have to protect the ball and just go up and hopefully get an and-1."

Chandler scored eight points, including two 3s, to move the lead to 28-11.

Chandler has six treys this season after she recorded 10 all last year. FHSU led 63-33 at the break.

In the second half, Ingalsbe tallied 13 second half points, often off wide-open looks from great passes.

"Tera, she really uses her body to get position, really better than Kate Lehman, primarily because of necessity," Hobson said.

"Kate Lehman doesn't have to so much because she can just go over the top of the defense (at 6-foot-4). Tera is about six foot and has to use body position and seal. She relies a little bit more on a good pass to get her the score."
