After being on their best win streak since 2006, the women’s basketball team traveled to USF to take on the Bulls, only to fall 79–46. Head coach Matilda Mossman said, “We just couldn’t score. We held them scoreless in the first four possessions, but then we couldn’t score either.”
Tulsa only shot 28 percent from the field, which was not enough to compete with the Bulls 41 percent. USF came into the game with 21 wins on the season and was too strong for TU to overcome. Ashley Clark led the Hurricane with 13 points, eight rebounds and two steals in her 23 minutes of play.
Looking to bounce back from the tough loss, the women hosted the top ranked Huskies of UConn on Saturday. Connecticut came into Reynolds undefeated in conference and only one loss to their name.
Unfortunately the Huskies outplayed the Golden Hurricane, winning 92–46, on the strength of points in the paint (44) and points off of turnovers (27). Clark was joined by teammate Kelsee Grovey, in leading the Hurricane’s offense, scoring 13 apiece.
The loss puts the Hurricane at 14–12 on the season. They look to put a “W” in the win column on Tuesday when they travel to Memphis to play the Tigers, before returning to Reynolds on Saturday to play their final home game of the season against Tulane.
