C-USA WOMEN'S BB: Tulsa topples Houston 76-63

TULSA — Sophomore Kadan Brady scored a career-high 18 points in helping send-off the Tulsa senior class to a 76-63 victory over the Houston Cougars in their final game at the Donald W. Reynolds Center Thursday night.

Tulsa closes the regular season with an overall 13-16 record and an 8-8 Conference USA mark, while Houston fell to an identical 13-16 overall record and 7-9 in league play. The Conference USA Basketball Championship for the women begins next Wednesday at the Tulsa Convention Center.

Tonight, the senior class was led by Taleya Mayberry's 18 points, followed by Tiffani Couisnard's eight points and two by Jessica McQuin. A pair of freshman, Kelsee Grovey and Ashley Clark, also scored in double digits for Tulsa with 14 and 10 points, respectively. Houston was led by Yasmeen Thompson's 17 points and Marche' Amerson's 16 points.

"When you finish the half with two of your starters on the bench with foul trouble, somebody has to step up and Kadan stepped up big and hit shots. The big thing was feeling confident," said Tulsa Head Coach Matilda Mossman. "Ashley Clark helped us tremendously on the boards, and she was looking to attack the basket, which is what we want to do. All-in-all I thought our kids played together really, really well."

Leading by two points at halftime, 32-30, Tulsa scored the first seven points in just the initial 79 seconds of the second half to take a 39-30 lead. Houston cut the Tulsa lead to four points at 41-37 with 15:48 left on the game clock, but the Hurricane kept the visitors at bay by converting on the offensive end.

Brady knocked down three treys in a 3:22 stretch as her first three-pointer came at the 13:22 mark to put the Hurricane ahead by 11 points. Brady gave Tulsa a 12-point lead, 51-39, on her second trey, and added her third straight three-pointer to keep the Hurricane ahead by eight points at 54-46 with 10 minutes left in the contest.
