Cleveland State Basketball Teams Fall To Walters State

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

The Cleveland State women’s basketball team suffered it's first loss in conference play on the season was a massive heartbreaker.

The Lady Cougars fell 74-71 in overtime to the Lady Senators of Walters State in Morristown,
Tenn. on Wednesday evening. They are now 3-1 in the TCCAA.

Cleveland State trailed 33-32 at halftime and led by as many as seven in the frame before they
headed into the locker room. The two teams were neck-and-neck after the break, as neither one
could gain an edge without extra minutes.

However, free throw shooting was the Achilles’ heel of the Lady Cougars in the overtime period.
Cleveland State was just 1-4 from the stripe in extra time and missed shots from the charity
stripe that would have brought them within two points at the :45 second mark and would have
tied the game with :13 seconds to go.

The offensive explosion of Asjah Harrell was a standout storyline in the game this evening.
Harrell scored a game-high 31 points while also dishing out five assists, grabbing five boards,
and stealing the ball five times. Britnay Gore also recorded her third double-double in the last
four games, posting 11 points with 16 rebounds.

The Lady Cougars will look to bounce back at home on Saturday as they host Jackson State.
Tip-off is scheduled for 2:00 ET.
