The Texas Women’s Basketball team toppled the University of Louisiana-Monroe, 77-49, on Tuesday night at the Frank Erwin Center. 

 

Junior Brady Sanders posted a career-high scoring effort and freshman Imani McGee-Stafford recorded the third double-double of her career to lead the Longhorns to victory against the Warhawks.  Sanders scored 15 points, 11 of them in the second half, while McGee-Stafford contributed 11 points and a team-leading 11 rebounds. 

 

The first half of play was marked by an abundance of fouls with both teams combining for 29.  A total of 37 free throws were shot in the first half; Texas made 11-of-15 and ULM sank just 11-of-22.  Texas held the Warhawks to 16.1 percent from the field with Monroe making just five of its first 31 field goal attempts.  The Longhorns headed into the locker room leading 35-21. 

 

Texas came out running in the second half and quickly expanded its lead.  The Longhorns outscored ULM 26-12 in the paint and 12-0 off fast break runs during the final stanza.  

 

UT also benefited from season-high scoring performances from freshman Empress Davenport (11 points) and Celina Rodrigo (six) and junior Anne Marie Hartung (eight).  Senior Cokie Reed contributed a season-high nine rebounds.

 

Tyler Holley led Louisiana-Monroe with 14 points.  Alexar Tugler chipped in 10.
