Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns women’s basketball team fell in overtime in Sun Belt Conference action on Thursday, dropping a 72-67 decision, to the Georgia St. Panthers, at the Cajundome.

Georgia St. led at halftime, 37-36, capitalizing on a 16-1 run, from the 7:51 mark to the 2:59 mark.

At the 4:28 mark of the second half, Sylvana Okde hit a jumper, giving Louisiana a 60-56 lead.

That would turn out to be the last field goal they would hit in regulation, as the Panthers came back to tie it, 62-62, at the end of the second half.

Georgia St. scored the first four points of the overtime period, and went on to the five-point win.

The Panthers finished the game out-shooting the Cajuns from the floor, 45%-38%, and also finished with a 43-32 rebound advantage.

Ashlee Logan and Brittany Cole led the way for Georgia St., scoring 16 points apiece, with Logan also pulling down 15 rebounds.

In a losing cause for Louisiana, Brooklyn Arceneaux had 16 points, along with nine rebounds, while Okde scored 14 points.

With the victory, the Panthers improved to 8-10 overall, and 4-2 in Sun Belt Conference play, while the Cajuns fell to 10-7, overall, and 3-3 in league play.

Louisiana returns to action on Saturday night, when they host WKU in the back-end of a day/night, women’s/men’s doubleheader.
