NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Tulane's visit to he sunshine state did not leave the Lady Green Wave smiling. It's where their W-NIT run came to an end at the hands of Florida Gulf Coast University, 73-61.

Lisa Stockton's Lady Wave were in comeback mode all night, falling behind 33-22 at the half. Their deficit reached more than 20 before a slight rally. Kolby Morgan, Leslie Vorpahl and Shakira Harding nailed 3-pointers to get the Wave to within 11, with about four minutes to go.

But, Tulane had no answers for the Eagles Whitney Knight, who finished with a double-double, 22-points, 10-rebounds to push Florida Gulf Coast into the tournament's Elite Eight.

Tulane finishes its season with a 23-12 record.
