The Tulsa women made another comeback attempt that did not come to fruition. This time it was an 82-75 setback to Louisiana Tech Wednesday night at the Reynolds Center.

The Golden Hurricane (10-13 overall, 4-8 in Conference USA), which have now lost six straight games, never led but tied the game four times including a 67-67 deadlock at the end of regulation.

A layup from Kadan Brady drew TU to within 73-71 with 1:02 left in the extra period. But Hurricane free throws sent the Bulldogs to the foul line often, where they successfully converted and stretched the advantage.

Chrisstasia Walter led the Bulldogs with 32 points. Whitney Frazier scored 23.

Tulsa was led by the 21-point effort of Ashley Clark. Kelsee Grovey and Brady also scored 12 and 11 points respectively.

One thing that hurt TU was free throw shooting, where it converted on 43 percent (6-of-14) of its shots, while Louisiana Tech (8-17, 3-9) was 82 percent (23-of-28)

Both teams finished with 43 percent (Tulsa -- 32-of-74; Louisiana Tech -- 25-of-58) from the floor. Tulsa was 28 percent (5-of-18) from 3-point range, while the Bulldogs were 45 percent (9-of-20).

Tulsa had a 41-40 rebounding edge. It just could not finish on the higher end of the scoreboard. It will meet North Texas at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Reynolds Center.
