Jan. 9 W-Basketball Results/Highlights

Jan. 9, 2013

IRVING, Texas - Junior forward Kayla Thornton posted her fifth double-double of the season with 23 points and 12 boards, while senior forward Anete Steinberga added 18 as UTEP topped Tulsa, 71-64, at the Donald W. Reynolds Center in Tulsa, Okla., Wednesday. Thornton scored 16 points in the first half, including hitting one of her five 3-pointers. UTEP (13-1, 1-0 C-USA) extended that advantage to as many as 12 before withstanding several charges by the Golden Hurricane (5-9, 0-1 C-USA) to lock up its eighth straight victory. The effort also keeps the Orange and Blue on pace with the 2006-07 squad for the best start in program history. UTEP can equal the school standard (14-1) when it plays host to East Carolina at 2:05 p.m. MST Sunday.

Tulsa had three players score in double digits lead by senior guard Taleya Mayberry's team-high 21 points, five assists and a block in 34 minutes on the court. Senior forward Tiffani Couisnard and sophomore guard Kadan Brady each added 14 points. Junior forward Loren McDaniel pulled down a team-high nine rebounds.
