Tulane falls short at Memphis

FOX 8 FOX 8
(WVUE) -

The Tulane women’s basketball team (16-13, 7-9) rallied down 10 points in the first half to take a six-point lead in the fourth against Memphis (14-15, 7-9), but the Tigers’ Taylor Williams sunk another game-changing three against the Green Wave to hand the home team a one-point lead. The Green Wave had two go-ahead shot attempts in the final 10 seconds but couldn’t get either to fall, losing Monday night's game 57-56.

Kolby Morgan registered her 16th 20-plus point performance with 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting, including a career high tying 6-of-9 effort from 3-point range. Leslie Vorpahl registered her fourth double-digit assist performance on the year with 10 to go with her seven points.

“I think we really battled. I’m really proud of our kids. A 20-2 free-throw differential is hard to overcome. We just turned the ball over too much,” Tulane head coach Lisa Stockton stated. “We shot well but it’s just a matter of making plays at the end.”

Up next, the Green Wave will enter the American Athletic Conference Championships as a No. 5 seed and will look to avenge a loss to No. 4 seed UCF in the quarterfinal round of the conference tournament.

    Early in his Rummel career it became very obvious Ja'Marr Chase was a special talent. Colleges across the country want the five-star recruit because he excels all over the field. "Great team player. He was on special teams at times, helped us out there. He worked hard at practice. He's not one of those guys that got in the huddle and said 'I want the football.' He was just a good humble kid," said Rummel Head Coach Jay Roth.  Chase is down to three schools where ...more>>
