AMERICUS – Tyisha Moore scored 16 points and Brittany Robinson scored 13, but cold shooting from the Lady Hurricanes in the third quarter and hot shooting from UNC-Pembroke led to a 16-point deficit from which GSW couldn’t recover. As a result, GSW fell to the Lady Braves 73-60 last Monday at the Storm Dome.

For the third straight game, the second quarter belonged to the road team. Brittany Grant scored to give GSW an eight-point lead with 7:36 to go in the second quarter, but a 14-2 run by the Lady Braves enabled UNC-Pembroke to take a four-point lead at 28-24.

GSW regained the lead on two free throws by Mariya Trimble, but the Lady Braves scored the last seven points of the half to take a 35-30 lead at halftime.

GSW shot 6 of 17 from the field (35.3 percent) in the third quarter, while the Lady Braves shot 50 percent, including going one for two from beyond the arc.

Kya Cochran made a jumper with 1:59 left in the game, but that would be as close as the Lady Hurricanes would get.
