ABILENE, Texas — Texas-Tyler jumped out to a big early lead and HSU never recovered in an 83-55 loss in American Southwest Conference women’s basketball action at the Patriot Center in Tyler on Saturday afternoon.

Kourtney Holyfield hit a pair of 3-pointers early for HSU to give the Cowgirls a 6-5 lead at the 17:02 mark. HSU then went nearly seven minutes without a basket and

UTT pushed the run out to 16-2 and took a 21-8 lead on a Taylor Murphy layup with 9:45 to play in the half.
The Patriots ran the lead to 42-17 at halftime.

The Cowgirls played much better in the second half but the deficit was too much to overcome. HSU hit 10 3-pointers in the game, including four by Holyfield. The freshman led the Cowgirls with 12 points.
 
Murphy led UT-Tyler with 26 points and Brittany King added 11.

HSU had 24 turnovers in the contest and UTT converted them into 28 points.
