Rodriguez scores career high in ODU's third-straight win of the season

Southview's Adriene Rodriguez scored a career-high 24 points and helped lead Ohio Dominican to its third-straight win, a 80-69 overtime win over the University of Northwestern on Tuesday night.

With just over a minute left in regulation, Rodriguez hit a 17-foot jumper to tie the game at 63-63.

Along with hitting the clutch shot send the game into overtime, Rodriguez paced the Panthers with a game-high 24 points, which is also his college high.

Oberlin's Aaron Gibbs also scored in double digits with 11.

After starting off the season 0-5, Rodriguez, Gibbs and the Panthers have found their rhythm with three straight wins.

Their other wins came against Calumet College of St. Joseph (Indiana) by the score of 74-52 and University of Michigan-Dearborn, 88-76 in the Red Roof Inn Thanksgiving Classic last week. Gibbs recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, five blocks and four assists to lead the Panthers in the win over Calumet, while Rodriguez scored 15 points and dished six assists in the win over UM-D.

The Panthers look to extend their winning streak to four when they travel to Mount Vernon Friday for the Mount Vernon Nazarene Tournament. ODU will tip-off against Concordia University at 6 p.m.
