The College of Wooster women's basketball team fell 66-49 in its home finale on Wednesday and could not complete the season sweep against Oberlin College.
A'Janay Nicholson grabbed a game-high nine rebounds in 11 minutes off the bench.
The guard combination of Cheyenne Arthur and Leah Ross led Oberlin. Arthur scored 17 and Ross followed with 15. They were a combined 8-for-14 from 3-point range as the team finished 9-for-21 for the game.
Arthur and Ross were responsible for Oberlin's quick start and a 43-21 halftime lead. The duo had 24 of Oberlin's 43 points.
The Yeowomen shot 46 percent for the game (27-for-59). Wooster struggled with its shot, shooting 26 percent (19-for-72) from the floor, 20 percent (4-for-20) from deep and 44 percent (7-for-16) from the foul line.
Wooster's best stretch of the game came in the third quarter, which they won 20-13. They cut a 49-28 deficit to just 10 after a 11-0 run made it 49-39 with 1:48 left in the quarter.
However, an Oberlin timeout readjusted the Yeowomen as they brought the lead to 15 at the end of the third, 56-41. Oberlin then grew that lead to as many as 23 in the fourth.
Wooster won the rebounding battle 44-43. Wooster held slight advantages in bench points (19-16), fast break points (11-7) and second chance points (12-9), but Oberlin outscored the Scots in the paint 26-18.
Oberlin improves to 15-9 overall and 10-5 in the North Coast Athletic Conference, while Wooster drops to 6-18 overall and 2-13 in the conference. Wooster will wrap up its regular season Saturday when they travel to DePauw University.
