Crimson Tide Women’s Basketball Rolls into WNIT Quarterfinals with 72-64 Win over Tulane...

on Friday, March 24, 2017

Crimson Tide Women's Basketball:

Junior Hannah Cook led four teammates in double figures with 18 points on 70 percent shooting to lift the Alabama women's basketball team to a 72-64 victory over Tulane! 

With the win, the Crimson Tide (22-13) advances to the quarterfinals for the second time in program history, and first time since it became a 64-team field, and will play at Georgia Tech on Sunday, March 26 at 1 p.m. CT.

"I appreciate our community,"
said Alabama head coach Kristy Curry. 

"What a great crowd on a Thursday night and we hope that everybody that was here will come back and see us in the future. We really appreciate them; so many coaches within the department, athletes and departmental personnel. It was great to see so many faces in the crowd, and again we really appreciate everyone's support. I'm really proud of our team for finding a way to win. Each one of them."

"We talked after the game about what we could take away and continue to learn from tonight, and I thought they had some great points," added Curry. 

"It was composure and little things as we went throughout each one. I thought that down the stretch, we had great composure against a very well coached Tulane team. My hats off to Leslie Vorpahl for a great career there, just an outstanding leader, you can tell. They are just a very well coached team and Lisa Stockton does a great job. We were fortunate to have a few more plays that we made." 

For the game, Alabama shot 48.9 percent (23-47) while Tulane finished at 43.1 percent (25-58) from the floor. The Tide outrebounded the Green Wave, 39-27, and had 16 assists on 23 made baskets.
