Lafayette, LA - Making 53 percent of its field goal attempts, the University of Louisiana scored a 72-57 victory over the Florida Atlantic University women's basketball in a Sun Belt Conference (SBC) game on Saturday, February 16 in the Cajun Dome.
The Owls fall to 11-14 on the season and 8-9 in conference play, while Louisiana improves to 8-17 overall and 2-14 in SBC action. FAU returns to the court on Wednesday, February 20 at 8 p.m. at the University of North Texas.
Louisiana's Kia Wilridge and Keke Veal each had 20 points to lead the hosts. Ashley Benjamin chipped in 11 points.
Florida Atlantic held a 35-33 halftime advantage, but Louisiana used an 8-0 run midway through the second half to take a commanding 58-49 lead. A pair of free throws by Turner trimmed the deficit to eight points, 64-56, with 3:49 left in the game.
