UTEP Saddled With OT Setback At UCF

Sports
Sunday, February 17, 2013 - 6:31pm

Kayla Thornton (26 points, 11 rebounds), Anete Steinberga (18 points, 11 rebounds) & Chrishauna Parker (11 points, 11 rebounds) all registered double-doubles but UTEP was derailed in overtime at UCF, 76-69, Sunday afternoon.

The Miners (18-6, 6-5 C-USA) led for most of regulation only to have the Knights (11-14, 5-6 C-USA) force the extra session after 58% free-throw shooter Erika Jones sank a pair of tosses at the charity stripe to tie the tilt at 66 with 0.8 seconds left.

UTEP aspired to regain momentum in OT but the home side scored the first 10 points of the period before Cameasha Turner drilled a triple with four seconds left to account for the game's final points.

Jones & Gevenia Carter each tallied 21 points to pace UCF, which was held to 32.3 percent (21-of-65) from the floor while also being out rebounded by a count of 52-44.

It overcame the downfalls in those areas in part due to a big day at the free-throw line. The Knights made 31-of-45 at the charity strip, including a combined 17-of-27 in the second half and overtime.

The Miners nailed 17-of-22 free throw tosses, but did have three misfires in the final 26 seconds.

UTEP connected on 36.4 (24-of-66) from the floor but it was ultimately done in by the discrepancy in free throws, turnovers (23, which led to 26 UCF points) and a lack of depth.

Aside from Parker, Steinberga & Thornton, no other Miner scored more than four points.
Irene Gari had four points while grabbing five rebounds before fouling out for first time of her career.

Kelli Willingham hit a triple, as did Turner.

UTEP will return to action when it plays host to Houston at 7:05 p.m. MST Thursday.
