Cougar women have an easy time at Tulsa

Seventeen points each from Cougar seniors Kari Gallup and Barbie Carmichael did the job in BYU's 71-55 victory over Tulsa Saturday.

The win improves BYU's record to 10-11, 4-6. Tulsa drops to 8-13, 4-6.The Cougars controlled most of the game, taking a 28-23 lead at halftime.

BYU's defense was a key factor in the game, holding the Golden Hurricanes to 33-percent shooting from the field and 57 percent from the line.

"It's a good win for us. We executed well, played hard defense and made those critical free throws down the stretch," said head coach Trent Shippen.

"Kari's 3-pointer right before the half and a couple of others as Tulsa was trying to catch up were big lifters for us," added Shippen.

Lori Henry continues to be the team's leading rebounders, grabbing seven in the game. The Cougars shot 45 percent from the field and 72 percent at the line.

Gallup's five 3-pointers in the game put her just five shy of tying the school's record of 180 held by Behka Stafford White.

The Cougars return home for two Mountain Division games against Colorado State and Wyoming.
