The Golden Hurricane women’s basketball team played a single game this week, against East Carolina. In this tightly contested match, they were able to snap their three-game losing streak.
The first quarter was back-and-forth, as the score was tied a couple times, and the lead changed a few times as well. Near the end of the second quarter, ECU was able to pull ahead to a bit of a lead, as they went on an 11–2 run. At the halftime break, ECU led 27–22.
In the third quarter, each team shot well. However, ECU shot 3–4 from behind the three point line, and pushed their lead out to 8, at 45–37.
Tulsa needed a comeback in the fourth quarter to come away with a win. Ashley Clark and Erika Wakefield took matters into their own hands, and scored all of the Golden Hurricane’s 18 points in the quarter. The defense helped out as well, holding the Pirates to 9 points, and Tulsa came away with the 55–54 victory.
With the win, Tulsa remains in 7th place in the American Athletic Conference, with a record of 8–15 (5–7 AAC). On the schedule this week are two home games, first against Houston on Feb. 10, and then against UCF on Feb. 13.
