(New Orleans, La.) Dillard won its sixth game in seven tries with an upset victory over the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference's first place team in Talladega College by the score of 75-72 in overtime. The loss snaps Talladega's seven game win streak.
Dillard (15-6, 7-2 GCAC) was down by one point in overtime when sophomore transfer Adriiana Jackson (SO/Houston, Texas) scored a lay-up and got fouled with 15 seconds left. She knocked down the free throw to give her team a two-point lead and finished with a team-high 19 points on 5-of-11 field goals, including 9-for-12 from the foul line. Jackson also dished out four assists and one block in the win while teammate Alexia McDonald (JR/Petal, Miss.) finished with 17 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals but had six turnovers.
"The girls did a great job executing the game plan," said Dillard head coach Norbert Rome.
Post player Keona Favis (SR/Shreveport, La.) had a solid output and finished with 10 points, eight boards, four assists and three steals while Makeedah Collins (FR/Houston, Texas) came off the bench with the hot hand and scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting from the field.
As a team the Lady Bleu Devils forced 28 turnovers and produced 20 assists on 26 buckets. The Lady Bleu Devils thrived from the foul line, scoring 21-of-30 free throws while the Lady Tornadoes shot a total of only nine free throws, sinking seven of them.
Talladega's Tajanee Wells led her team with 21 points and six rebounds in the loss.
"I thought we did a good job of attacking the basket and getting to the foul line," said Coach Rome.
