Vorpahl leads Tulane to win over Maine

FOX 8 FOX 8
(WVUE) -

Tulane (9-4) powered through a sluggish start before collecting its fourth straight win, 77-62 victory over Maine (7-7) in their final non-conference game of the season.

Senior Leslie Vorpahl recorded a day to remember, surpassing 1,000 career points, thanks to her season high 24-point performance. It was also Vorpahl's first double-double of the season after dishing out 11 assists.

Not to be outdone, junior Kolby Morgan finished with a game-high 26 points on 11-of-17 shooting from the field.

“It was a really hard fought game in which our defense made the difference in the second half,” Tulane head coach Lisa Stockton stated. “We started the game really flat and gave them so many opportunities. We came back and defended the three much better, applied better pressure and created some turnovers and it really got our momentum going in the second half.”

Lastly, Tulane improved to 7-0 at home this season and have now won 11 straight inside Fogelman Arena, dating back to last season.

Tulane will kick-off American Athletic Conference at East Carolina on New Years Eve.
