FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA – After two straight victories, Florida Tech women’s basketball looked to extend its win streak to three. Sadly, the streak ended as the women fell to Nova Southeastern, 61-80.
November Morton led the team in scoring for the second straight contest as she recorded 15 points. Amanda Allen also tallied 15 points and a team-high in rebounds with six. Cheyenne Scott had a big day passing the rock as she dished out a team-high seven assists.
The first quarter was an even affair as both teams vied for control of the game. However, a Severine Uggen fastbreak layup gave Tech a 16-14 advantage with 57 seconds left on the clock. This held till the clock reached 0:00.
The second quarter did not go in the Panther’s favor as they had a difficult time keeping pace with the Sharks as they were outscored 11-22. This put the halftime score at 27-36.
The second half was similar to the latter portion of the first as the Crimson & Gray struggled to get its offense going and despite solid defensive efforts, the women could not slow down Nova.
This led to the Panthers trailing by double digits for most of the final 20 minutes.
Florida Tech will be back in the Clemente Center Wednesday, Jan. 15, for a 5:30 p.m. ET showdown with Sunshine State Conference rival Tampa.
