Chelsea Tieuel drives to the hoop in a defensive battle vs UTA Saturday in Arlington.

The Warhawks put up their best defensive effort in the Jeff Dow era holding the Mavericks to 35.4 percent shooting but the effort was not enough.

Coach Jeff Dow said they should have capitalized on their defensive efforts.

“The defensive effort was there. Any game where you hold a team to 40 points on their home floor, you have to find a way to win,” Dow said.

At the 8:31 mark in the first half the Warhawks took a 15-10 lead following a 12-0 run.

After opening the second half with a 23-22 lead the Mavericks would knock down two consecutive three pointers to regain the lead.

The Warhawk’s offense shut down in the last half of the game and ULMscored only nine points in the thrid and fourth quarters.

With 3:59 remaining the Mavericks took their largest lead of the night at 39-31.

On the night ULM allowed a season low seven three point attempts and two completions.

The team recorded nine blocks as well including seven from senior Stephanie Ratliff.

She fell just two shy of the school record set 24 years ago.

Senior Alayshia Hunter moved up to 17th all time on ULM’s scoring list.

The loss moves to the Warhawks to 3-13 on the year in the Sun Belt Conference and 9-15 overall.

The basketball team heads to Mobile to face the Jaguars Thursday.
