NEW ORLEANS - Toledo fell to Tulane 77-67 in overtime yesterday in the consolation game of the Tulane Women's Basketball Tournament.
Toledo's Danielle Bishop hit one-of-two free throws to put the Rockets up 64-61 with 23.7 seconds to go.
Tulane's Jami Montagnino then fired a 3-pointer from the right side which was off the mark, but Kendra Barnes snared the offensive rebound. Barnes' follow also went awry, but Montagnino swooped in to tip the ball to Jennifer Sands who took two dribbles before finding Nikki Luckhurst on the left side. The sophomore caught and fired with a hand in her face and found nothing but net to force overtime.
The Green Wave outscored Toledo 13-3 in the overtime. Bishop led the Rockets with 18 points, including three 3-pointers while Diana Reindl added 11.
