Women: MSU Hits Glass Hard, But Falls to Savage Storm

Midwestern State hit the offensive glass with a vengeance as Cierra Thompson and Savannah Carver combined for 43 points Tuesday night in Lone Star Conference crossover play at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.

Southeastern Oklahoma outscored the Mustangs 20-12 over the final 5:54 of the game to come away with an 80-71 victory.

The Savage Storm improved to 4-1, while MSU dropped to 1-3.

Thompson, a junior forward from Llano, delivered a career high in the second straight game finishing with a game-high 23 points and added eight rebounds and three steals in 33 minutes.

Carver, a junior forward from Amarillo, poured in 20 points to go along with five rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes, while junior forward Jazman Patterson grabbed a career-best 16 rebounds and completed the double-double with 13 points.

Patterson, who corralled nine offensive rebounds, led a solid MSU effort on the glass as the Mustangs turned 23 offensive rebounds into a 23-2 edge in second-chance points.

Still, the Mustangs trailed by as many as 11 points early in the second half before MSU used an extended 19-9 run to close to 60-59 on Thompson's layup with 5:54 to play.

Southeastern pulled away from that point on.

Bailey Welch led a trio of Savage Storm players in double figures with 15 points and 11 assists while Nikki Nester and Christin Nichols notched 12 points each.

Midwestern State continues crossover play Thursday night against East Central (Okla.) at D.L. Ligon Coliseum. Tipoff for the doubleheader is set for 6 p.m.

    After watching the Dallas Cowboys run around in just helmets the first two days, it was finally time to hear the pads clash together.  Head Coach Jason Garrett stuck to his normal game plan of having the offense and defense practice separately to start camp, but today the pads went on and the competition ramped up.
