Last Week’s Results




Defeated Missouri State 61-42 (Freshman Rashad Ray and junior Pat Swilling Jr. came off the bench to spark Tulsa in the first half and lead the Golden Hurricane to a 61-42 victory over the Missouri State Bears. Ray and Swilling each scored 11 points, while freshman Shaquille Harrison scored 10 points and also led the Hurricane with seven rebounds and four assists. The Hurricane held the Bears to 29-percent shooting from the field and a season-low 42 points. It was a tale of two halves as Tulsa shot just 39-percent in the first half and turned around in the final 20 minutes to shoot 61-percent and 48.8-percent for the game.) 

Took Down TCU 50-49 (Pat Swilling's free throw with 0:03 left on the game clock snapped a 49-49 tie and gave Tulsa a 50-49 victory over the TCU Horned Frogs. TU was led by freshman D'Andre Wright's team-highs of 14 points and 7 rebounds, while senior Kauri Black and freshman Shaquille Harrison each tallied nine points for the Hurricane. TU shot 46-percent for the game and out-rebounded the Frogs 33-27.) 



Won against Nebraska-Omaha 49-48 (Kadan Brady hit a three-pointer with just six seconds remaining and Nebraska-Omaha countered with just a field goal to give Tulsa a 49-48 win on Tuesday night. Kelsee Grovey had a team-leading 11 points, while Taleya Mayberry and Mariah Turner each added 10 points. Tiffani Couisnard had a team-best nine rebounds, while Brady had three steals, four assists and six rebounds. TU shot 38-percent from the field, 25-percent from three-point range and 30-percent from the line (3-for-10). The Hurricane had 24 points in the paint and 21 points off the bench.)

Defeated Colorado State 58-43 (The Tulsa women's basketball team earned it's third-straight victory as the Hurricane tallied a 58-43 win over Colorado State on Saturday afternoon at the Donald W. Reynolds Center. Kelsee Grovey had a team-best 16 points, while Taleya Mayberry added 11 points and a team-leading seven assists. Tiffani Couisnard pulled down 12 rebounds, and Couisnard, Ashley Clark and Grovey each had two steals. The Hurricane shot 38-percent from the field, including a solid 48-percent in the first half, hit a 40-percent clip from three-point range and went 8-for-12 from the charity stripe. TU had 18 points in the paint, nearly half their points off turnovers (28), and had 26 points from the bench.)
