Tulsa’s women fell way behind again and could not overcome as they dropped a 65-53 decision to Old Dominion Thursday night in Norfolk, Va.

The Golden Hurricane (10-9 overall, 4-4 in Conference USA) turned the ball over five times in the first four minutes while falling into deficits of 17-2 and 31-9. They would revive and with a run a drew within 38-31 at halftime.

Old Dominion, however, expanded on the advantage in the second half, leading by 19 points at 57-38 after a 3-point play from Odegua Oigbokie.

Kadan Brady led Tulsa with 17 points, including five treys out of nine attempts. Stevi Parker also had a big game, grabbing a career-best 12 rebounds, 10 coming on defense.

"We preach about being in the help position and tonight Stevi Parker was a warrior," Tulsa coach Matilda Mossman said. "She took six charges, had 12 rebounds and three blocks. She worked hard out there, especially on defense. I am also excited for Kadan Brady, not only for her five three-pointers, but for how she played offensively."

TU shot 36 percent (19-of-53) from the field, 33 percent (6-of-18) in 3-pointers and 64 percent (9-of-14) from the free throw line.

Old Dominion (11-12, 4-5) was led Shae Kelley’s 27-point effort. Stephanie Gardner and Chelisa Painter also got 10 points each for the Lady Monarchs, who also converted on 36 percent (24-of-67) shooting, 15 percent (3-of-20) in treys and 70 percent (14-of-20) from the foul stripe.

TU will be at home to host Florida International at 2 p.m. Saturday.
