Wolves fall in to Tampa in Florence, AL
The West Georgia women's basketball team came up on the short end of a shootout Saturday night in Florence, Ala., falling 79-69 to the Tampa Spartans in a single neutral site contest.
The shootout came at the three-point line, as Tampa hit 11 three-pointers on the night to the Wolves' seven, but seven of the Spartans' made shots from beyond the arc came in the second half. West Georgia hit five in the first half, but couldn't keep pace in the second, hitting just two three-pointers in that period.
The first half was one of see-saw battles between the two teams, as both squads were able to take as much as a five-point lead in the period, but neither could get any further than that. Both teams shot right at or just below 50 percent in the half and it looked as though Tampa would take a four-point advantage in at the break.
But junior Monè Peoples cut that lead to one with two seconds left in the half, nailing a three-pointer to pull the Wolves to within one at 37-36 heading into the locker room. Peoples went into the locker room as the Wolves' leading scorer in the first half with 15 points on 3-of-5 shooting from three-point range.
