WBB: St. Aug Succumbs To Livingstone In Second Half

Posted February 21, 2013

Saint Augustine’s University led at halftime, but Livingstone College turned the tables in the second half for an 84-64 CIAA women’s basketball win over the Lady Falcons. The contest was played at Trent Gym on Livingstone’s campus on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013.

The Lady Falcons (11-13 overall, 4-5 Southern Division) took a 32-26 lead into halftime but the second half was a different story. The Lady Blue Bears outscored the Lady Falcons 58-32 to hand St. Aug its second consecutive loss. The 58 points are the most by an opponent in the second half against the Lady Falcons this season.

“We didn’t stick to our game plan and it cost us,” St. Aug Head Coach Rachel Bullard said about the second half. “Livingstone came out ready to fight and we couldn’t shake them.”

The trio of Autumn Smith-Faulkner (Sr./Charlotte, N.C.), Porscha Walton (Fr./Chesterfield, Va.) and Ebony Spencer (Jr./Chesapeake, Va.) each scored 11 points for the Lady Falcons. Smith-Faulkner scored all 11 of her points in the first half to spark the Lady Falcons to a six-point lead at the break.

Tyesha Tharpe scored 14 of her 20 points in the second half to ignite the Lady Blue Bears (4-11, 2-7 Southern Division). Jasmine Murray scored 17 points and Tiffany Evans added 13 points including 11 in the second half.

The Lady Blue Bears outshot the Lady Falcons 59 percent to 27 percent in the second half. For the game, the Lady Blue Bears hit 49 percent of their shots compared to 32 percent for the Lady Falcons. Led by Tharpe, the Lady Blue Bears scored more points in the paint (42-20).

The Lady Falcons’ bench scored half of the team’s points. In addition to Spencer’s 11 points, Lakiya Rouse (Fr./Greensboro, N.C.) and Regime McCombs (Fr./Greenville, S.C.) both added six points and Terri Jacobs (Fr./McDonough, Ga.) added five points to lead the reserves, who outscored Lady Blue Bears’ bench 32-19.

The Lady Falcons will host Fayetteville State at Emery Gym in their final regular-season game on Saturday, Feb. 23, at 2 p.m. The team’s two seniors - Smith-Faulkner and Temperance Jacobs (McDonough, Ga.) - will be honored.

“We will regroup and get ready for Fayetteville State,” Bullard said.
