Pitt State Women's Basketball Falls at UNO

Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. -- Senior Laura Glenn and Y'Cedria Devers tried their best to put the Gorillas on their backs in the second half, but their efforts would fall just short as the Pittsburg State Women's Basketball team fell to Nebraska-Omaha, 78-73, on Saturday afternoon at Sapp Fieldhouse.

Devers and Glenn combined for 23 of the team's 44 second half points. Devers finished the game with a career-high 16 points, 14 of which she scored in the second half. Glenn added 15 points, including nine in the second half. Glenn also added a team-high 10 rebounds for a double-double. Drew Roberts added 10 points. Lauren Brown came off the bench to pull down nine rebounds.

UNO had five players score in double figures. Jamie Nash led the way with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Paige Frauendorfer added 15 points and nine rebounds. Jessica Zabruba added 13, Amanda Woodring, 12, and Heather Pohl, 10.

UNO led from the 18:52 mark in the first half. They built the lead to 12, 41-29 at the half.

In the second half, the Lady Mavs reached a game-high 16-point lead with 7:10 to go. Pitt State went on a 10-0 run to cut the lead to six with just under four minutes left. A layup by Devers with 2:02 reminaing, brought the score to 72-68, but everytime the Gorillas would get close, the Lady Mavs found a way to extend their lead, eventually closing out the game with the loss for Pitt State.

The Gorillas will begin post-season play on Friday, March 4 in the MIAA Tournament at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo. Pitt State will be the No. 5 seed in the tournament and will face either Missouri Southern or Emporia State at 2:15 p.m.
