Cowley used big runs to start each half to handle Fort Scott Community College's women in the Jayhawk Conference-Eastern Division opener, 71-45, at Arnold Arena Wednesday night.

The visiting Tigers (1-0 East, 10-3 overall) jumped out to a 21-9 lead in the first half and began the second half with a 17-2 run.

Fort Scott (0-1, 5-7) was able to respond with good play in the late part of each half but were too deep in the hole to fully recover.

Cowley's defense forced 30 turnovers and held the Greyhounds to 9 field goals in 30 attempts. Fort Scott made just 4 of 17 attempts from inside the 3-point line.

The Tigers also held Fort Scott's top scorer, Jolee Sharp in check. She was able to get off just one field-goal attempt in the game and finished with 4 points.

Erica Smith -- who missed the last part of the first half when she got shaken up chasing a loose ball -- and Jatavea Arnold scored 9 points each to lead the 'Hounds. Chynna Ramelb and Symone Murray paced Cowley with 12 points each. Four other Tigers -- Kassy Ptacek, Tonisha Walker, Montia Johnson and Clarissa Cannon -- scored 8 points each.

The Greyhounds host Allen at 2 p.m. Saturday in another division contest.
