NATCHITOCHES – Forward Jasmine Upchurch scored a career-high 30 points and had 14 rebounds to lead the Northwestern State women's basketball team past Wiley College 65-57 Tuesday night.

It was Upchruch's ninth double-double and the 23rd double-digit scoring effort of her career.  She also contributed two steals and one assist.

"Jasmine's energy started us off, and there for a while she was the only thing going," said first-year head coach Brooke Stoehr. "Aside from her stats I though she really brought a lot of energy and her mental focus was really good tonight."

Northwestern State (3-1) is off to its best start since the 2005 season when the Lady Demons won four of their first five.  Wiley College dropped to 4-1 on the season.

Freshmen Janelle Perez (13) and Danielle Westerfield (10) each scored in double-figures on the night. Markeshia Johnson rounded out the scoring leaders with eight on the night.

Jasmine Bradley followed behind Upchurch with nine boards, and Johnson finished with five.  Perez led the team with four assists.

Northwestern State will travel to Houston Friday and Saturday to take part in the UH David Jones Classic starting with Texas-Pan American at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon.
