March 7, 2002
Tulsa, Okla. (AP) - Carla Morrow sank a pair of free throws with 10.3 seconds left Wednesday night, preserving a 66-63 quarter-final victory for Tulsa over San Jose State in the Western Athletic Conference women?s basketball tournament.
The victory pushed No. 5-seeded Tulsa (17-12) into Friday?s semifinal round against top-seeded Louisiana Tech, a 70-53 winner over Boise State. No. 4-seeded San Jose State, ending a six-game winning streak, bows out at 17-11.
After the score moved to 64-58, Elea A?Giza scored and Atari Parker nailed a 3-pointer to pull the Spartans within 64-63 with 31.8 seconds to play. After Morrow?s free throws, though, A?Giza was judged guilty of walking in backcourt with 7.4 seconds left.
Farr led Tulsa scorers with 23 points, while Heidotten added 13. Parker topped San Jose State with 22 point and Cricket Williams had 16. The Spartans sank only 7 of 30 second-half shots.
