Lady 'Backs rally past Tulsa in OT

TULSA — Arkansas' Kelsey Hatcher's three-pointer with 0:13 remaining in regulation forced overtime where the Lady Razorbacks out-scored Tulsa 12-4 and captured a 64-56 victory at the Tulsa Convention Center Arena in downtown Tulsa on Thursday night.

Tulsa dropped to 0-3 on the season, while Arkansas improved to 2-0.

Tulsa's Taleya Mayberry led all scorers with 25 points, while fellow senior Tiffani Couisnard had 13 points and 10 rebounds. Arkansas was led by Keira Peak's 17 points and 14 rebounds, followed by 14 points by Sarah Watkins and 12 points by Quistelle Williams.

"I'm pleased with how hard our kids played. We challenged them tonight to come out and play hard and that's what they did, said Tulsa Head Coach Matilda Mossman. "Hatcher hit a three-pointer right at the end of regulation to force overtime."

"We had too many stretches during the game that we couldn't capitalize - we had one situation where we're shooting, and they get a technical, we miss both shooting free throws and make only one technical free throw so we come away with only one out of four, then another stretch where we're up three with less than two minutes to play and we miss the front end of a one-and-one where we had a chance to go up five. It's little things like that, little things like post players not getting the ball with two hands, and getting the ball knocked away. It's little things that we can fix and get better at. I'm looking forward to taking a few days off before we take off to play in the Bahamas and get some rest," added Mossman.

The Hurricane led for all but two minutes in the second half as there were three ties at 33-33 coming with 16:36 remaining, 49-49 at the 5:55 mark and 52-52 at the end of regulation. Arkansas led just two times in the final 20 minutes, both times coming within the first two minutes.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
