Taleya Mayberry, Taylor Hooker and Tiffani Couisnard all scored in double figures, leading Tulsa to a 70-48 win over Arkansas State on Wednesday night at the Donald W. Reynolds Center. TU moved to 1-3 on the season, while ASU fell to 1-2 overall.

"I am just excited for our kids," Head Coach Matilda Mossman said. "We told them from the beginning that they are a special group and that they are better than a 5-20 team and I am excited that they got rewarded tonight. When you haven't won a home game since December 11th of last year, it is hard to keep coming to practice every day and hard to think you are capable of winning. I am just excited for these guys and the fact that they got that win."

Mayberry had a team-high 27 points, just shy of her career-high 30 points against Oral Roberts last year, while Hooker added 14 points. Couisnard had her second career double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds, while Hooker also earned six steals on the night, tying her career best.

The Golden Hurricane shot 37-percent on the night, but struggled from three-point range (4-18), and went 12-for-18 from the line. TU scored 38 points in the paint, 31 points off turnovers and 14 second-chance points.

Tulsa earned its first win at home since December 11, 2010 against Texas A&M International. It was also the last time TU earned a win by 20 or more points, as the Golden Hurricane picked up a 33-point victory (83-50). This was also TU's first win since January 16th against Southern Miss (74-71).

Mayberry had 14 points at the break, nearly half of the Golden Hurricane's 33 points as Tulsa took a 33-25 lead into the lockerroom.

There were four lead changes and one tied score in the first six minutes, but Tulsa took the lead with 14:14 on the clock and continued to inch ahead throughout the remainder of the game for a 24-point advantage with just 5:29 left in the game.

Quinishia McDowell had a team-best 18 points for the Red Wolves, while Jane Morrill had 10 points. Ashley Olvera had team-highs of eight rebounds and five assists.

Tulsa will return to action on Tuesday, Nov. 29th against cross-town rival Oral Roberts. Game time is set for 7:00 pm at the Reynolds Center.
