  • The Butler women had their best start to a game this season, scoring the first 31 points on Monday night in a 104-54 win over Northern Oklahoma-Tonkawa. The Mavericks didn't score until Raetchel Gray made two free throws with 11:08 to play in the first half. It would take another four minutes before Northern made its first basket from the floor. By that time, Butler led 44-4 with seven minutes to go in the first half, meaning it took the Mavericks nearly 13 minutes to score their first basket. The Grizzlies would lead by as many as 50 in the first half and were up 57-12 at the intermission. Butler led by as many as 53 points in the second half, hitting the century mark on a pair of free throws by Kynadi Johnson with 2:54 to play in the game. Ashlee Ivy led Butler with 26 points, while Ashley Gibson and Te'era Williams had 20 apiece and Shayla Williams scored 10. Williams had 12 rebounds to record a double-double. Butler, ranked eighth nationally, is now 16-1 overall and has won 14 straight. The Grizzlies wrap up non-conference play with a road game Wednesday at Pratt. The Grizzlies will attempt to sweep the season series from the Beavers after winning 72-53 in El Dorado in November.
