Grovey Leads Tulsa Women's Hoops to 84-52 Win Over Rogers State in Exhibition
Nov. 1, 2013
Tulsa, Oklahoma -
"It hurt us that Mariah picked up her second foul less than two minutes into the game so she sat the rest of the half," Head Coach Matilda Mossman said. "Then Loren picked up a couple fouls so we were in a situation where we had people playing out of position the entire first half. We weren't very pleased with our effort in the first half, we didn't think we played very hard, and we put them at the free throw line too many times, but I thought in the second half we turned it up. Mariah really went to work inside and I was pleased with the way Kelsee played the entire game."
Grovey led TU with 20 points and added seven rebounds, while Spoerl posted 15 points and six boards. Turner accounted for 12 points in 16 minutes of play as she got into foul trouble with just two minutes off the clock in the first half. Ashley Clark pulled down a team-best nine rebounds, eight of which were on the defensive end of the floor, and had three steals, while Erika Lane dished out six assists.
The Golden Hurricane shot 42-percent from the field, 32-percent from beyond the arc and 81-percent from the free throw line. TU had 34 points off the bench and 32 points in the paint.
Taylor Jeffs and Mikaila Newton led the Hillcats with 10 points apiece, while Clarissa Cannon had a team-high seven rebounds.
TU held RSU to a 24-percent field goal percentage and just 26-percent from three-point range, and they shot 67-percent from the charity stripe.
Tulsa will open the regular season against Texas Southern on Friday, November 8th at 11:30 am at the Reynolds Center.
