FOOTBALL (3-3, 2-0 C-USA)
Defeated UAB 37-20
(TU stayed unbeaten in Conference USA play with a strong effort over UAB. The Golden Hurricane received a career day from senior tight end Clay Sears, and senior quarterback G.J. Kinne was his usual self. Sears caught nine catches for 105 yards and two touchdowns, while Kinne completed 31 of 43 passes for 341 yards and three TD's. Sophomore tailback Ja'Terian Douglas rushed for 137 yards and scored once, while junior H-back Willie Carter also found the endzone. TU's defense allowed 20 points to the Blazers in the opening half, but then put the clamps on the second half, shutting out the road team.)

MEN'S SOCCER (4-9, 0-3 C-USA)
Lost at Kentucky 3-1

Lost to Memphis 3-0 (Tulsa dropped a home match with the Tigers after allowing a hat trick to Memphis' Mark Sherrod. TU was outshot 18-9, with eight of its shots coming in the second half. Murray saved five shots and allowed three goals.)

WOMEN'S SOCCER (10-5-2, 2-3-1 C-USA)

Defeated Marshall 3-0 (Tulsa moved into a tie for fifth place in the Conference USA standings (and just three points out of second) with a strong showing against the Thundering Herd. Sophomore midfielder Jordan O'Brien notched her first goal of the season with a game-winner in the 36th minute, and sophomore forward Lindsay Kirch added two second-half insurance markers. Bykowski picked up the clean sheet after saving all four shots on goal and Tulsa earned its school-record 11th shutout.)

VOLLEYBALL (17-5, 8-1 C-USA)
Won at UAB 3-0 (25-15, 25-21, 25-11)

Sophomore outside hitter Kellie Culbertson added 15 digs and nine kills. Junior setter Jordan Clampitt dished out 30 assists and had a double-double with 12 digs.
