The Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns women’s basketball team came back from a six-point deficit and staved off a late comeback to defeat the Savannah State Lady Tigers, 63-58, at historic Earl K. Long Gym on Friday evening.
Despite shooting only 37 percent (22-of-59), Louisiana (6-5) forced a season-best 33 turnovers as the Ragin’ Cajuns clinched their seventh victory over Savannah State (4-6) in the past nine seasons. Louisiana has forced 30-plus turnovers in two contests this season, marking the first time this feat has happened within the last seven seasons.
UL trailed 52-46 with 7:25 remaining in the game, but the Cajuns went on a seven point run to take a 53-53 lead at 4:35. Louisiana would never relinquish the lead as they picked up the most victories at this point in the season since the 2006-07 campaign. However, the Lady Tigers pulled within two with 34 seconds remaining, but a missed three-pointer sealed the victory for UL.
