Dec. 8, 2012
After shooting a season-high 52.2 percent in the first half, the Rams went cold in the second, shooting just 13.0 percent. A 7-minute scoring drought proved to be fatal for CSU, giving the Golden Hurricane a lead it would not relinquish.
The Rams were not very aggressive on the offensive glass with a season-low two offensive boards, resulting in zero second-chance points. The team didn’t corral their first offensive rebound until there was just 10 minutes remaining in the contest.
Tulsa converted an impressive 28 points off the Rams’ 18 turnovers.
Alicia Nichols ran into foul trouble early in the contest, with two before the first five minutes of play. She came back in with 10 minutes left in the half and led an eight-point scoring surge, giving the Rams their last lead of the matchup.
Sam Martin started her first double-figure scoring streak this season with 13 points vs. the Golden Hurricane. Nichols joined her in double-digits with 10. Hayley Thompson registered a season-high with seven points.
CSU made a season-high eight baskets from beyond the arc this afternoon. The .296 three-point percentage was the highest since their last victory vs. Seattle.
The Rams used another variation for their starting five Saturday. Emily Johnson earned her first-career start, joining Hayley Thompson, Sam Martin, Nichols and Caitlin Duffy. LaDeyah Forte missed her first start since Dec. 2, 2011 when she took over for the injured Mandy Makeever.
Colorado State will take a break for finals and then return to the friendly confines of Moby Arena for the first time in nearly a month on Dec. 16 vs. CSU Bakersfield. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. MT.
