The Cougars led 27-25 at the half and then 41-35 entering the final quarter.

“The girls have been trying to put together 32 minutes of basketball. We had a good win last week against C. Milton Wright and tonight was a chance to build on that,” Cougars coach Johnny Woods said. “The girls were challenged by a good Tech team and responded well behind our three senior guards, Jillian Crawford, Allie Book and Molly Mullaney. We still have work to do, but this was a good win towards continued growth.”

Then they were able to make free throws down the stretch to be able close the game out,” Tech assistant coach Dan Goodsell said. “We know we let this one slip away from us in the second half and we will see what type of team we have with how we respond moving forward.”

Tech head coach Brad Hunt was not able to attend the game due to an emergency.
