Roadrunners to open Conference USA Tournament play against Tulsa on Tuesday night
SAN ANTONIO — The No. 15 seed UTSA women's basketball team will play 10th-seeded Tulsa in the opening round of the Conference USA Tournament at 8:30 pm (CT) on Tuesday at Memorial Gym in El Paso.
The Roadrunners (13-16) will look to avenge a 73-62 loss to the Golden Hurricane (12-15) in the C-USA opener that took place on Jan. 8 in San Antonio.
Tulsa broke open a halftime tie with a 16-4 run to pull away and snap UTSA’s seven-game winning streak. Kamra King scored 10 of her team-high 15 points in the second half for UTSA and was joined by Mannasha Bell in double figures with 11. Niaga Mitchell-Cole matched a career-high with 10 rebounds.
Mariah Turner led three Golden Hurricane players in double figures with 16 points, while Kelsee Grovey added 15 and Ashley Clark chipped in with 14 and nine rebounds.
King sits 11 points shy of becoming the 13th UTSA player to join the 1,000 career point club.
The winner will face No. 7 seed Old Dominion (16-14) in the second round at 8:30 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday night.
