Lady Techsters fall to Old Dominion

Posted: Updated:
RUSTON, LA (KSLA/Louisiana Tech Sports Information) -

Old Dominion shot 54 percent from the field in the second  half as the Monarchs overcame a halftime deficit to defeat Louisiana Tech 75-64 Wednesday night at the Tech Constant Convocation Center.

Trailing 29-28 at half, Old Dominion got back-to-back three-pointers by Tiffany Minor who scored 10 points in the first two minutes of the second half to lead the Monarchs (14-14, 7-7 C-USA) to a 38-31 lead, forcing Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon to call a timeout.

"I sound like a broken record," Weatherspoon said. "We play well for 20 minutes and then we come out of the locker room in the second half and we don't get the job done. We allow opponents to get off to a good start and when you are on someone else's home floor, you simply can't do that. The crowd got into it, and we were forced to try to play catch up the entire second half."

ODU pushed the lead out to 59-49 with eight minutes to play before the Lady Techsters made a run, cutting the deficit to 64-59 with under four minutes to play. However, coming out of the timeout, Tech forced a miss by the Monarchs but failed to pull down the rebound, instead fouling and sending Odegua Oigbokie to the free throw line.

Oigbokie hit both free throws and then Tech committed a turnover on the ensuing possession which led to a fast break layup and a nine-point deficit. It would be as close as Tech would get.

Whitney Frazier led Tech with 17 points, six rebounds, four steals and three assists while JaQuan Jackson added 15 points and seven rebounds. Savanna Langston scored a career-high 13 points and grabbed eight rebounds and blocked three shots.

Galaisha Goodhope led ODU with 17 points while Shae Kelley added 15 points and 11 rebounds.

Tech returns to action Saturday when it travels to play North Texas in Denton at 2 p.m.
