Tulane women fall short at Vanderbilt

FOX 8 FOX 8
(WVUE) -

Tulane held a one-point lead heading into the fourth quarter at Vanderbilt but couldn't close the game out against a very tough Commodore team. Kolby Morgan led the Lady Wave with 34-points but she needed some help as Vandy won 74-63 inside Memorial Gym on Monday night. Two days after being held scoreless for the first time of her career, Morgan recorded a career high 34 points on 14-of-26 shooting from the field, with a 5-for-9 mark from three-point range.

“Obviously, this was a disappointing loss,” Tulane head coach Lisa Stockton said. “We really battled in the first half. We have been challenging our team defensively and rebounding wise to step up and do a better job. I thought we did that in the first half but just let our guard down a little bit and then just couldn’t make shots.”

The loss dropped Tulane to 5-3 on the season. They'll conclude their three-game road swing with a trip to Baton Rouge to face LSU on Sunday.

    Despite their five and eight record, the New York Jets have been competitive in all but two games, a 45-20 loss at Oakland in week two and a 23 to nothing shutout in Denver last Sunday. It was to whom they lost last week, how they lost and whom they lost in the course of that embarrassing defeat that has the Saints installed as 16-point favorites.
