The Eagles were able to score 66 points during the game, but the Warhawks held them to zero in overtime.

The Warhawks escaped Fant-Ewing Coliseum Saturday night riding a three-game win streak thanks to a nailbiting 72-66 overtime win over Georgia Southern.

Head coach Jeff Dow said that the team’s hustle in the last half of the game was pivotal in the team capturing the win.

“We were just flying around. I thought we had a lot of energy, particularly in the last 25 minutes of the game,” he said.

The win brings ULM up to 8-10 on the year with a 4-5 record in the Sun Belt Conference. Georgia Southern drop to 4-13 with a 1-7 mark in conference.

Senior center Sharnice Brooks came up huge for the Warhawks. She tied a career high in points with 28.

Senior forward Christina Gray also played a pivotal role for ULM. She came up with 11 rebounds and shot 4-5 from the field. This was in addition to the many hustle plays she provided for the team.

The ability to get to the line played a big role. The Warhawks got to the line 22 times and knocked down 18 of those shots. Georgia Southern only got to the line eight times.

The Warhawks clamped down defensively, only allowing a 35.6 shooting percentage.

The Warhawks will travel to Troy this Thursday before returning home to Fant-Ewing to play Georgia State Saturday.
