Box Score

Tulsa, Oklahoma - Tulsa freshman Jillian Robbins led all scorers with a game-high 16 points and classmate Tandem Mays pulled down a game-best 11 rebounds to lead the Golden Hurricane to a 74-57 Western Athletic Conference victory over Nevada in front of 1,615 at the Donald W. Reynolds Center.

A total of four Golden Hurricane players reached double figures. Along with Robbins, Mays finished with 11 points to go with the 11 boards and record her first career double-double, while junior Sarah Lundberg added 14 points and sophomore Megan Moody chipped in 12 points. Tulsa (10-6, 3-3 WAC) out shot Nevada (2-15, 1-6 WAC), 39.2 percent to 35.2 percent and out rebounded the Wolf Pack, 55-39.

TU opened the game with a 7-0 run, but Nevada responded with a 9-0 spurt of its own after a timeout to take a 9-7 lead. Robbins tied the game on a lay-up and sophomore Emily Jaskowiak gave Tulsa the lead for good on a pair of free throws at the 11:40 mark. After a Nevada turnover, sophomore Kara Pongonis drilled a three-pointer to ignite a 13-2 run and give TU a 24-11 advantage with 8:09 in the first half. The Hurricane extended its lead to as many as 16 points on two occasions and led 36-21 at intermission. Tulsa shot 40-percent in the opening period and its stingy defense held the Wolf Pack to just 22.9 percent from the field.

Nevada shot 47-percent in the second half and managed to reduce the Tulsa lead to 11 points on a lay-up by Traci Graham early in the second period, but the Wolf Pack could not get any closer. Tulsa ran out to its largest lead of 23 points, 62-39, at the 7:58 mark and Nevada trimmed the lead late against Tulsa's reserves.

 

 

Jocelyn Mancebo led three Wolf Pack players into double figures with 15 points, while Amber Young tallied 13 points and a team-best nine rebounds, and April Bankston contributed 10 points.
