UT comes up short against CMU

Central Michigan holds off Rockets 80-77

Despite a commendable effort, the University of Toledo women came up short today, falling at home to Central Michigan, 80-77.

The Rockets (13-14, 8-8) led the Mid-American Conference West division champions by as many as 10 points in the second half but could not withstand a stretch in which Inma Zanoguera and Brianna Jones sat the bench in foul trouble.

The Chippewas took the lead with a little more than three minutes to play and held on to improve to 19-9 (15-1).

Ana Capotosto misfired a 3-pointer at the buzzer, sending UT to its third straight loss.

Janelle Reed-Lewis scored a game-high 24 points for the Rockets, whose quest for the fourth seed in the MAC tournament took a hit. UT needs to win its final two regular season games and hope Buffalo goes 0-2. Western Michigan must also lose one game.
