C-USA WOMEN'S BB TOURNEY: No. 15-seed UTSA upsets Tulsa

EL PASO — No. 15-seed UTSA overcame a 15-point second-half deficit to defeat No. 10-seed Tulsa in first round Conference USA tournament action Tuesday night at Memorial Gym on the campus of UTEP. UTSA made eight of their last 14 field goals and 10-of-14 free throws to overtake the Hurricane.

Tulsa's season ends with an overall 12-16 record, while UTSA advances to the second round with a 14-16 mark. UTSA plays No. 7 seed Old Dominion on Wednesday at 7:30 pm (MT).

Tulsa had five players in double-figures, led by Kelsee Grovey's 20 points, while Ashley Clark scored 18 points and added 12 rebounds. Kadan Brady and Mariah Turner added 15 points apiece, and Stevi Parker added 12 points. UTSA's Miki Turner had a game-high 32 points, including eight of the Roadrunners' final 10 points. Mathilde Hergott added 18 points and Ashley Spaletta 17 points, as the duo combined to convert 11-of-18 three-pointers.

UTSA's second-half shooting was sizzling as the Roadrunners shot 53-percent from the field and 69-percent from three-point range.

"First of all, I'd just like to congratulate UTSA on a great comeback victory. I can't tell you how many threes they hit in a row there in the last 10 minutes of the game, but it was a bunch. Hats off to them. This is now the fourth time this year that we've scored in the 80s and lost," said Tulsa Head Coach Matilda Mossman. "That's pretty tough to take - when you do your job on the offensive end and you give up more points than you score, you end up on the losing end."

"I'm proud of the fight our guys showed. I'm proud of how how hard we played. I'm proud of how we played together. Again, I thought our guys did a terrific job. We couldn't stop three-point shots when we needed to," added Mossman.
