This season featured a lot of mixed results for Tulsa. For the majority of the season, they had a hard time finding consistency; it wasn’t until the middle of conference play that they had a winning streak or losing streak of larger than two games.
When that elusive larger streak came, it came in the form of a six game conference win streak.
Despite lacking consistency for much of the season, Tulsa still managed to place third in the American Athletic Conference.
The Golden Hurricane were selected to play in the Women’s National Invitational and advanced to the second round of the tournament with a 78–72 victory over Missouri State.
The Golden Hurricane had some bad losses over the course of the season. In two games against the UConn Huskies, Tulsa lost by an average of 42 points. These losses were expected, though, as the Huskies rolled through the American Athletic Conference and finished with an undefeated 18–0 conference record.
Tulane beat the Golden Hurricane by 39 points in a bad loss in January, right before the Golden Hurricane took off on their six game win streak.
The Golden Hurricane also suffered a large loss against the second place team in the American Athletic Conference, the South Florida Bulls, to whom Tulsa lost by 33.
What to look forward to:
Seniors Mariah Turner and Kadan Brady will be departing, leaving openings in the core of the team. Look for juniors Kelsee Grovey and Ashley Clark to step up and carry the team during their senior season.
