UTSA’s run of wins in Conference USA has come to an end at two, as they fell 60-41 to Middle Tennessee on Wednesday at the Murphy Center.
The total was the lowest UTSA Women’s Basketball score in the season as they struggled to break through in a defensive match.
McKenzie Adams continued to have a good season as she was the leading Roadrunner with 11 points while Kamara King and Miki Turner who each managed 10 points.
It was a slow start to the game before Middle Tennessee pushed out to a 10-2 lead with a quarter of the game down.
UTSA came back with an 8-4 run to try and make a dent in the deficit, but it was all Middle Tennessee who managed another 10-2 run to make it 24-12 at half-time.
With 17:16 to play Ebony Rowe managed a lay up to push the Blue Raiders lead out to 33-17 before UTSA fought back and got the gap down to nine at 36-27 after a trey from King with 10:47 to play.
From there UTSA struggled to close out the game, managing 5-of-19 for the rest of the way as they fell to a 60-41 loss.
It was a tough result for the Roadrunners who have really let their solid non-conference form fall away, in a reverse of the men, and will need to regroup ahead of another tough match on the weekend.
