Taylor nets 23 points in Mustangs loss to Cameron

LAWTON, OK (KAUZ) -

 Cameron connected on a 61.9 percentage from behind the arc for 13 three-pointers to earn a 77-61 win over Midwestern State in the regular season finale Saturday afternoon at Aggie Gym.

With the loss, Midwestern State (5-21, 4-12 LSC) will enter the Lone Star Conference Championships as the No. 8 seed. The Mustangs await to learn their first round opponent as other league games finish up later tonight. MSU will tipoff in the LSC quarterfinals Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Allen Event Center in Allen.

While Cameron (15-10, 9-7 LSC) shot 46.7 percent from the field for the game, the Aggies limited the Mustangs to just 32.9 percent shooting.

Sophomore guard Whitney Taylor inked her third 20-point game in the last four outings, leading the Mustangs with 23 points on 7-of-16 shooting and 4-of-6 from long range. Taylor's five 20-point games this season have all come in the last 10 games.

Sophomore guard Krishawn Crockett added 14 points while junior forward Jennifer Sissel totaled 12 points and a pair of steals.

Cameron shot 5-of-9 from behind the arc in the first period to take a 20-9 lead after the first 10 minutes of play.

The Aggies grabbed a 25-13 lead just over a minute into the second quarter before junior guard Jacquar Westbrooks scored six straight for the Mustangs during a four-minute Cameron scoring drought to make it a 25-19 contest with 5:41 remaining in the period.  

However, the Mustangs would be held to just two points the rest of the quarter as Cameron claimed a 36-21 lead at the break.

Cameron continued to pull away in the third period with a pair of triples to double up the Mustangs at 42-21 just 1:46 into the second half.

Crockett and Taylor combined to score the first 12 MSU points to open the third quarter, pulling the Mustangs to within 13 at 46-33 after MSU put together an 8-0 run.

The Aggies answered the MSU spurt with a 20-4 run to close out the third quarter and build a 66-37 advantage heading into the final period.

Cameron built as much as a 32-point lead early in the fourth quarter before Taylor and Crockett combined for 11 points in a 13-1 MSU run for a 72-52 game with 5:08 to play. However, the Mustangs deficit was too large to overcome as the Aggies recorded the 77-61 victory.
