Tulsa got into a hole and could not overcome 25th-ranked Middle Tennessee despite making a comeback in a 67-57 loss to the Blue Raiders on Saturday at the Reynolds Center.

Kelsee Grovey produced a career-high 23 points for TU (10-8 overall, 4-3 in Conference USA). Mariah Turner also scored 13 and Ashley Clark netted 10.

Ebony Rowe led Middle Tennessee (18-3, 7-0) with 18 points, KeKe Stewart scored 12 and China Dow finished with 10.

Tulsa, which never led, trailed by as much as 21 points when Stewart drilled a 3 to make it a 37-16 game with 3:20 left to go.

The Golden Hurricane answered with a 15-0 spurt that carried over into the second half, ending with a trey by Grovey with 18:13 left in the game. That brought the score to 37-31 and would be the closest Tulsa would get.

The Blue Raiders outrebounded TU 41-33 and converted on 32 percent (18-of-56) from the floor, 33 percent (8-of-24) in 3-pointers and 70 percent (23-of-33) from the free throw line.

TU connected on 42 percent (20-of-48) of its shots, 27 percent (3-of-11) in 3-pointers and 74 percent in free throws.

Next on the agenda for the Golden Hurricane is road trip to Old Dominion. That game tips off at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
