Donnenwirth helps Menlo women win tournament opener

Laurel Donnenwirth scored 15 points and grabbed 16 rebounds as the No. 22 Menlo College women's basketball team downed No. 7 Campbellsville, 61-55, in overtime Wednesday at the Hawaii Pacific Classic in Honolulu.

Jolise Limcaco added 14 points for the Lady Oaks (10-3), who won their season-best seventh straight while handing the Tigers their first loss. Menlo plays Georgetown College on Thursday.

"Defensively we played really well and it turned out to be a defensive battle for most of the game," Menlo coach Shannon Osborne said.

Vanessa D'Amico hit a 3-pointer with 39 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the contest at 46.

Menlo went on a 10-3 run during the overtime period to complete the victory.
