TU women outlast visiting Voorhees

THOMASVILLE —     Thomas University outlasted visiting Voorhees College Lady Tigers 79-73 on Tuesday evening at the TU Gymnasium.

     TU, which improved to 4-5, opened up a 30-12 lead in the first half, helped by the hot shooting of junior guard Angel Roberts (eight points) and junior forward Taylor Britt (14 points). Voorhees, which fell to 5-3, stormed back with a 19-4 run to close the first half, cutting the Night Hawks lead down to three with TU taking the 34-31 margin into the locker room.

    Voorhees tied the game at 34 with a 3-point basket to open the second but TU junior guard Miracle Watts responded with a 3 of her own to give Thomas the lead right back. The teams exchanged baskets throughout the early going of the second half with VC taking a 48-47 lead at the 14-minute mark. TU retook the lead 51-50 with 12:45 and the teams once again exchanged leads over the next five minutes before Voorhees opened a 63-57 lead with 6:05 on a transition layup off a TU turnover. Watts made it a three-point game with a 3 at the 5:45 mark and hit her second in a row 35 seconds later to tie the game at 63. With 4:50 to play a putback by Roberts gave TU its first lead since the 12:45 mark. A steal and layup by Watts made it an eight-point game with 2:45 to play. The Night Hawks sealed the victory by making their free throws down the stretch, only missing one attempt in the final minute. Watts finished the game with a team-high 28, while Britt dropped 23.

     The Night Hawks travel to Brunswick to face College of Coastal Georgia on Saturday at 2 p.m., in their final non-conference match prior to opening up Sun Conference play on Dec. 7 at the TU Gymnasium
