While UTSA men's basketball is struggling the women showed them how it was done in the last game of their Thanksgiving Classic with a 72-63 overtime win over Norfolk State on Sunday afternoon at the Convocation Center.
Kamara King impressed for the Roadrunners, managing 23 points, five coming in the extra period after a 5-of-11 night from long range while Miki Turner was the other UTSA player in double figures managing 16 points.
It was a tough opening half for the Roadrunners as they couldn't get much joy on rebounds or scoring with Norfolk State leading the rebound count 23-13.
UTSA's shooting was poor throughout the first half as they only went at 29.2% on the back of a 7-for-24 first half that saw Norfolk State lead 31-25 at the break.
The Roadrunners finally took the lead six minutes in to the second half as a layup saw them take a 48-47 lead.
That lead to a tense time as the lead continually traded hands but with 42 seconds to play it seemed UTSA had done enough as a Turner layup gave them the 58-56 edge only for Norfolk State to respond through an Ebony Jones jumper to take the game to overtime.
UTSA dominated overtime with King proving crucial netting five points as the Roadrunners cruised to a nine point win.
