LSC Tourney Update: MSU Women Find A Way To Win In Overtime

The Midwestern State women’s basketball team turned a forgettable first half into a night to remember as they erased a 15-point Angelo State lead, winning 70-66 in overtime on Thursday night in the Allen Event Center.

Early in the game with the score tied at eight, the Angelo State Rambelles took advantage of a number of untimely MSU turnovers and exploded for an 11-0 run over a 4 minute span. The Mustangs allowed the ASU lead to balloon to 15 in the first half, finally trimming it to a ten point deficit by the half, 35-25.

MSU senior forward Andrea Carter narrowly missed another double-double, recording a game-high 18 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. Carter did most her damage in the second half and overtime periods, scoring 12 and grabbing 8 rebounds.

The Mustangs did enough to win despite being outrebounded 37-31 and only connecting on one three-pointer (1-12). MSU led the Rambelles in assists, steals, points in the paint, and points off of turnovers. Speaking of turnovers, ASU gave it up 27 times to MSU’s 16.

Two other Mustangs scored in double digits, Shatoia Gober with 15 and Taylor Dowd with 10. Nicole Smallwood provided great energy for MSU scoring nine points, including the only Mustang three-pointer.

The Mustangs advance to the conference semifinal to play West Texas A&M on Friday at 6pm. MSU has lost both games against West Texas this year.
