Second Half Woes Hurt TSU in Loss to JSU

FINAL BOX

Final Score: Tennessee State 48 – Jacksonville State 70
Records: TSU (2-17, 0-9 OVC) – Jacksonville State (9-11, 5-4 OVC)
Venue: Pete Mathews Coliseum
Location: Jacksonville, Ala.

NASHVILLE --- Second half struggles plagued the Tennessee State women’s basketball team in a, 70-48, loss to Jacksonville State Thursday night in Pete Mathews Coliseum.

TSU (2-17, 0-9 OVC) started the game strong and played to a tie at halftime. The second half, however, was a different story as the Lady Tigers struggled on both ends of the floor and saw the game slip away. The third quarter proved to be the difference, as TSU was outscored 26-8 in the frame. Despite the Lady Tigers nearly matching the Gamecocks point-for-point in the fourth period, TSU was outscored 44-22 in the second half.  

Jazmine Young led TSU in scoring with 14 points while Jaden Wrightsell recorded her second straight double-double with 10 points and a career-high 19 rebounds.

 Jacksonville State (9-11, 5-4 OVC) had three players to score in double-digits.
