SAINT LOUIS 65, TULSA 54
ST. LOUIS – Balanced scoring, solid defense and another strong performance from the free-throw line lifted Saint Louis to a 65-54 victory over Tulsa at Chaifetz Arena Tuesday evening.

The win snapped a four-game skid and improved the Billikens’ record to 3-5. Tulsa (3-2), which was held to a season scoring low, saw its three-game winning streak halted.

Erin Nelson and Jamesia Price scored a game-high 14 points apiece, Desirae Ball scored 12 and Denisha Womack equaled her season high with 10. Ball added game highs of four assists and three steals.

SLU earned a 42-40 edge on the boards. Womack matched her career best with eight rebounds, including a career-high and game-high five on the offensive glass. Olivia Jakubicek also had eight caroms, while Nelson (tying her career high) and Price corralled seven rebounds apiece.

The Bills enjoyed a huge advantage from the stripe, with season highs of 24 makes and 29 attempts (82.8 percent) to Tulsa’s 10-of-13. Saint Louis is shooting 82.1 percent from the line in its last four games.

Tulsa, which committed 22 turnovers and shot 35.1 percent from the field (4-of-20 from 3-point range), got 11 points from Erika Lane and a game-high 11 rebounds from Ashley Clark.

After Tulsa took its only lead of the game, 4-2, SLU assembled a 12-2 spurt that featured 3-pointers by Price and Jakubicek. The Golden Hurricane narrowed the gap to five points before a 7-0 Saint Louis run put the Billikens in front 23-11.

Three-pointers by Lane and Kelsee Grovey cut the margin in half, but that was as close as Tulsa would draw the rest of the night. SLU gradually expanded its lead and took a 38-25 cushion into intermission.

The Billikens’ largest lead, 55-33, came with 8:42 to play. Despite a late Golden Hurricane rally, SLU’s advantage remained in double figures.

LIBERTY 76, RICHMOND 61
LYNCHBURG, Va.
– The Richmond women’s basketball team fell to the Liberty Flames, 76-61, Tuesday night at the Vines Center. The Flames shot a season-high 51.9 percent from the field to claim the victory.

Richmond (3-4) was led by two freshmen Spiders in double figures, as Janelle Hubbard scored 14 points, while Olivia Healy added 11 points and led the team with seven rebounds.

Despite the loss, Richmond forced 21 Liberty (3-5) turnovers which capitalized on 22 of its points while only committing a season-low 10 turnovers.  

The Spiders were unable to snap Liberty’s momentum as the Flames led for the entire contest. Richmond came as close as 12 points with 7:45 left to play but could not cut the deficit.

The Flames connected on 10-of-17 from behind the arc, while out rebounding the Spiders, 47-23, to score 34 points in the paint.

The Spiders will return home to the Robins Center after a four-game road swing Saturday to host UNC Wilmington at 2 p.m.

GEORGETOWN 78, GEORGE WASHINGTON 57
WASHINGTON -
Freshman Caira Washington posted her first career double-double, but the George Washington women's basketball team fell to crosstown rival Georgetown, 78-57, on Tuesday evening at the Hoyas' McDonough Arena.

Washington recorded career highs of 13 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks, notching the first double-double of the season for GW. She made 6-of-8 shots from the field and added two assists. Graduate student Megan Nipe was the only other Colonial in double figures with 13 points to go with nine rebounds, four assists and two steals.

Georgetown (5-2) jumped out to a 7-0 lead, but the Colonials battled back with seven straight points to knot the game at 7-7, the first of four draws in a five-minute span. A pair of free throws by freshman Hannah Schaible tied the game at 15-15 with 9:12 remaining, but the Hoyas answered with a 12-1 run, and Georgetown led, 36-25, at the break.

The Hoyas started the second half hot, using an early 18-4 run to go up 59-33 before GW (4-3) responded with a 14-5 spurt of its own, sparked by back-to-back three-pointers by sophomore Aaliyah Brown and freshman Shannon Cranshaw. Georgetown, however, scored the final six points of the game to defeat the Colonials, 78-57.

GW scored 23 points off 18 Georgetown turnovers while committing just 10 of its own.

Natalie Butler led five Hoyas in double figures with 17 points and eight rebounds, and Andrea White posted a double-double with 15 points and 13 boards. Katie McCormick also scored 15 points, all in the second half, while Faith Woodard recorded 13 points and nine rebounds and Samisha Powell had 12 points, seven rebounds and four assists.
