Manley knocked down 3-of-4 from 3-point range, and Bath hit eight treys on the night. The Wildkittens shot 28-of-55 from the floor (50.1 percent).

Emily Ruhe, who is still working her way back from injury and coming off the bench after being a key contributor to Bath’s team over the past few seasons, scored 11 points off the bench.

Bath’s full-court pressure yielded 30 Roughrider turnovers.

The Wildkittens kept pace atop the WBL. The Wildkittens moved to 4-0 in the league and 9-4 overall. Bath and Shawnee remain the only unbeatens in the WBL.

Molly Albert and Erika Angstmann each scored four points to lead the Roughriders. Albert left the game with an injury in the first half and did not return to the game.
