OVC HOOPS: Turnovers doom Lady Colonels in San Juan

RICHMOND — Turnovers doomed the Eastern Kentucky University women’s basketball team in a 68-64 loss to Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Sunday during the final day of the 2012 San Juan Shootout.

The Panthers turned 22 EKU turnovers into 19 points.

Jade Barber and Jalisa Bryant led EKU (3-2) with 15 points each. Brittany Coles added 12 points and a game-best nine rebounds.

Angela Rodriguez finished with 19 points for the Panthers (3-2).

Back-to-back baskets by Raechele Gray put the Lady Colonels on top 62-60 with 1:15 left in the game. Kimee Chandler answered on the other end to tie the score for the 11th and final time.

After Gray missed a shot, Ashley Green went to the free throw line and made both attempts to give UWM the lead for good. A lay-up by Coles with nine seconds remaining made it a two-point game.

However, Rodriguez made both free throws at the other end to seal the game.

After starting the game 5-for-14 from the free throw line, the Panthers finished 9-for-10 at the stripe, including all six in the final minute.

Milwaukee made 7-of-13 three-point attempts in the first half, but went just 1-for-10 from deep while shooting 29 percent from the field in the second half. EKU shot 52 percent in the first half, but made just 35 percent of its second-half shots.

The Lady Colonels will return to action on Wednesday when they travel to face No. 6 Louisville. Tip-off against the Cardinals is scheduled for 7 p.m.
