The Cincinnati Bearcats women’s basketball team fell to 2-1 last evening, dropping a 76-72 decision in overtime to Old Dominion University.
The loss brings to an end UC’s opening homestand at Fifth Third Arena.
Cincinnati held a 34-30 advantage at the half but inconsistent shooting and a failure to control the boards cost the Bearcats the game.
Cincinnati shot a mere .319 for the evening and was pummeled on the boards 56-37. Cincinnati trailed for much of the second half but fought their way to a regulation tie. In overtime, Cincinnati native Victoria Morris took over for Old Dominion, adding six of her 23 points for the victorious Monarchs.
Old Dominion, who improved to 3-0 with the victory, was paced in its attack by freshman phenom Ajah Wayne. The 5’10 forward poured in a team high 24 points in the victory.
Next up for the Bearcats is a Friday night showdown in Pittsburgh with the Pitt Panthers. Check back with Down the Drive for full coverage of the Bearcats’ road excursion.
