Warhawks slain by Trojans

Maggie Eubanks

The script hasn’t changed for women’s basketball here on the bayou. 

After their midweek game was canceled due to water on the court, the Warhawks were looking to find the win column in their matchup last Saturday against the Little Rock Trojans. 

Sadly, this did not happen as ULM took the loss 64-47. 

Despite the loss, freshman Kyren Whittington put on a show to score 25 points. She by far was the top scorer for the Warhawks as she scored more than half of the points for ULM.

Little Rock dominated the first half by putting up 35 points on the Warhawks. 

ULM got close in the second quarter after a steal from freshman Aasia Sam led to a 3-point play by senior Kierra Crockett, bringing the Warhawks within three at 16-13. 

But after this play, the Trojans went on a 10-0 run to extend their lead to 13.

Little Rock had its largest lead of the half with 3:13 to go in the second quarter after a layup put them up 31-15 on ULM.

The Warhawks attempted to mount a comeback but after some untimely fouls, they went into the half down by 11. 

Although ULM came out hot in the opening minutes of the third quarter, cutting Little Rock’s lead down to five at 35-30, the Trojans’ offense was once again too much for the Warhawks to handle. 

Little Rock outscored ULM 21-6 over the remainder of the third quarter to extend the lead to 56-36. 

ULM had nothing going in the fourth, so the Trojans took the win 64-47. 

The Warhawks were beaten in almost every category with Little Rock shooting 45.5% in field goals and 54.5% from the 3-point line. 

ULM shot 35.1% in field goals and 12.5% from the 3-point line. 

The only place where the Warhawks fared better was the free-throw line where they shot 6-6 and the Trojans shot 8-12. 

This loss extends ULM’s losing streak to 11 games. With only six games left in the regular season, the Warhawks have not set themselves up for a successful end to the season. 

ULM will look to end the losing streak against Arkansas State at home on Monday at 5 p.m.
