Taylor, Crockett record career highs in loss at Angelo State

WICHITA FALLS, TX -

 Angelo State shot 50.7 percent from the field and outscored Midwestern State 40-22 in the paint to deny the Mustangs their first road win of the season Saturday afternoon with an 85-68 victory at the Junell Center.

Sophomore guards Whitney Taylor and Krishawn Crockett led Midwestern State (4-13, 3-4 LSC) with career highs of 21 and 20 points, respectively, as the Mustangs notched a pair of 20-point scorers for the first time this season. With her 21 points, Taylor notched double figures for the sixth-straight game. Senior guard Kathryn Odom dished out a career-best seven assists while junior forward Jennifer Sissel pulled down a team-high nine rebounds.

It was a hot-shooting opening quarter with Angelo State (11-5, 4-2 LSC) shooting 60 percent from the floor to claim a 27-17 lead. The Mustangs shot 44 percent from the field, starting out 6-of-6 from the floor with Taylor going 4-of-4 with a trio of threes to record 11 points just five and a half minutes into the game.

MSU erased an 8-3 deficit early on following a jumper from senior forward Katie Brown and a Taylor triple before going neck-and-neck with ASU for the next several minutes. A jumper by Crockett evened the game at 17 apiece before the Rambelles ended the period on a 10-0 run.

ASU continued to pull away from the Mustangs in the second quarter, building a 19-point advantage midway through the period after a layup by junior guard Taylor Dorsey. The Mustangs trimmed their deficit down to 14 at 41-27 after a three-point play from junior guard Jacquar Westbrooks and a Sissel jumper.

The Rambelles built a 20-point lead early in the third quarter at 51-31 before Crockett netted five-straight points to pull the Mustangs back within 15 with 6:47 remaining in the period.

MSU managed to pull as close as 14 points on a couple of occasions but the Rambelles were able to answer and prevent a Mustangs run late to come away with the 85-68 victory.

Junior post Jasmine Prophet led four Rambelles in double figures with 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting while Dorsey added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the double-double.

Midwestern State returns home next Saturday for a 4 p.m. tipoff against Cameron at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.
