Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio - It quickly became clear that the rematch between the University of Rio Grande and West Virginia University-Tech was not going to end in the same manner in which their earlier meeting did.
    The RedStorm, who failed to connect on a potential game-winning three-pointer and two subsequent game-tying follow ups in the closing seconds of a two-point loss to the Golden Bears in November, built a quick double-digit lead and cruised to a 89-64 victory, Saturday afternoon, in non-conference women's basketball action at the Newt Oliver Arena.
    Rio Grande improved to 12-6 with its third straight win.
    WVU-Tech suffered its ninth straight setback in falling to 5-12. The Golden Bears haven't won since their November 22 win over the RedStorm.
