    UL Basketball

    Seems like we had some Southland Conference rejects. Or could it be some Sun Belt rejects?:confused:

  3. UL Basketball Lady Cajuns blow past Pan Am


    EDINBURG, Texas Don't look now, but the Louisiana women's basketball team is starting to pick up a little steam.

    After a conference win over North Texas last Thursday and a respectable effort against Denver on Saturday, the Lady Cajuns delivered a 66-41 road victory over Texas-Pan American on Monday in a non-conference affair.

    Solid defense and 16-of-30 shooting in the second half led to the victory.

    Louisiana (5-14) allowed a season-low 13 points at the half to enjoy a 26-13 lead at the break.

    The Cajun women upped their lead to 44-20 in the first eight minutes of the second half thanks to a 13-2 run.

    UL Basketball Lady Cajuns getting better

    Advertiser-Dan McDonald

    UL The record may not show it, but Louisiana women's basketball coach J. Kelley Hall doesn't hesitate to talk about how much his squad has improved its play over the last two weeks.

    "We're playing good defense,'' he said, ""and our rebounding is so much better. If we can just get our offense fine tuned ...''

    The Cajun women have won two of their last five outings heading into Saturday's Sun Belt Conference clash at New Mexico State, and Hall said that the squad had a solid chance to win the other three.

    UL Basketball Lady Cajuns welcome ASU

    Advertiser-Dan McDonald

    UL The home court may be just what Louisiana's women's basketball squad needs.

    So, too, may be Arkansas State, the squad that the Ragin' Cajuns host tonight in the next-to-last home game of the 2002-03 season.

    The Cajuns have played eight of their last 10 games on the road with only a quick two-game break to face North Texas and Denver snapping that road swing.

    "That wears on you a little bit," said head coach J. Kelley Hall of the extended time away from Long Gym. "We've been looking forward to getting back home."

    UL had some success in that brief break from the road three weeks ago, taking a 58-57 upset win over North Texas and playing Denver close until the final two minutes in a 69-59 loss.

    And, since then, the Cajuns (5-17, 1-10) have stepped up their play, taking one win in a four-game road swing and playing Sun Belt Conference West Division leader South Alabama to a four-point 55-51 game in Mobile.

    UL Basketball Lady Cajuns Hurt from perimeter

    Arkansas State knocks down six 3-pointers in win.

    UL Louisiana head women's basketball coach J. Kelley Hall knew that Arkansas State could shoot the 3-pointer, so he wanted to limit the Indians' attempts outside the arc here Thursday night.

    That the Ragin' Cajuns did, with ASU getting off only seven shots. The problem for the host Cajuns was that the Indians made virtually all of them.

    The Indians hit six treys, and Catriece Webster did the rest of the damage as ASU posted a 68-57 Sun Belt Conference win at Long Gym.

    Casie Lowman hit 4-of-4 and Rachel Porter hit 2-of-3 outside the arc. Indian leading three-point shooter Amber Abraham didn't even get one off, but she didn't need to.

    "We defended the three pretty well for the most part," said Hall. "But we couldn't guard 23 (Webster), and we didn't do a good job on 10 (Lowman) in the second half."

    UL Basketball Farewell to local Lady Cajun trio

    UL The threesome had distinct roles before the start of the 2002-03 Louisiana's Lady Cajun basketball season.

    Charlotte Green controlled the tempo and provided the outside shooting threat.

    Sarah Richey blocked shots, rebounded and did the inside scoring.

    And Brooke Williams did the "dirty" work, drawing the key defensive assignments, battling inside and doing the things nobody else truly wanted to do.

    J. Kelley Hall changed all that around, looking to bring success for that trio in their senior years and at the same time bring success to the Ragin' Cajun women's program for the first time in a decade and a half.

    Although there are indications of improvement this season and for future years, it didn't happen this year. The Cajuns stand at 5-18 heading into tonight's home finale against Arkansas State.

    And Hall feels their pain.

    "If there's one thing that I'm disappointed about, it's those three," he said. "I feel bad that the seniors won't be here to experience the success that we expect to have in the future."

    Green, Richey and Williams will be honored prior to tonight's 7 p.m. game at Long Gym, wrapping up basketball careers that began nearby and never took them very far from home.

    Default Lady Cajuns WIN Home Finale

    Cajun women pull out victory,
    send three seniors out on a high note.

    UL It was just like old times Saturday night.

    Charlotte Green got two key steals and converted them into layups, sparking the offense for Louisiana's Lady Cajun basketball team.

    And in the closing seconds, Brooke Williams turned in the game's biggest defensive play against the game's hottest scorer, enabling the Ragin' Cajuns to survive in a 55-53 Sun Belt win over Arkansas-Little Rock.

    Green and Williams were two of the seniors honored prior to the final home game of the season, along with Sarah Richey, and it was only fitting that both turned in key plays after Richey had fouled out in the game's final 3:03.

    "I'm glad for our three seniors,'' said Cajun head coach J. Kelley Hall, "and glad we could send them out on a positive note.''

    UL Basketball Lady Cajuns WIN

    For the first time in more than two years, Louisiana's Lady Cajuns overcame a halftime deficit to earn a victory. Louisiana, without leading scorer Charlotte Green, topped North Texas 65-59 on Thursday night.

    The Cajuns 65 points marked their third best scoring output of the season.

    Thursday's performance was the exact opposite of the last two times UL visited the Super Pit in Denton, Texas. Last season, Louisiana was blown out 88-34, trailing at the half by a score of 43-15. The Lady Cajuns shot only 24 percent and committed 27 turnovers in that game. UL fell 92-49 at NT during the 2000-01 season.

    This time, the Cajuns shot 45 percent, committing only 17 turnovers to 20 by North Texas. The two teams committed a combined 21 turnovers in the first half, which saw the Lady Eagles lead 26-21 after 20 minutes.

    The win helps the Cajuns sweep the season series with North Texas.

    A basket by Sharee Glenn with 12:15 remaining gave the Cajuns their first lead of the second half, 37-35. Three points from Emily Britt recaptured the lead for the Lady Eagles, but a 10-footer from Ashley Blanche and a trey from Glenn gave UL a 42-38 advantage.

    North Texas came back with a 12-4 spurt to take a 50-46 lead with less than eight minutes to play. A pair of free throws by Brooke Williams with 6:45 remaining started a 10-0 Cajuns run that was capped by a three-pointer from Bernette Tolston with three minutes left.

    Mian Williams and Heather Trout came back with three points apiece to tie the game at 56-56 with 1:59 remaining.

    A triple from Tolston with 1:09 on the clock gave UL a 59-56 edge. Blanche's free throw put the Cajuns up four with 40 seconds left, but Britt banked home a three with 27.5 seconds on the clock to make it a one-point game. Blanche and Anna Petrakova hit a pair of free throws each to seal the win for the Cajuns.

    Williams led the Cajuns with 15 points and nine rebounds. Four other players reached double figures as Glenn added 13 points, Tolston 12 points and Blanche and Sarah Richey each added 10 points. Blanche added a game-high five assists.

    Britt led North Texas with 21 points and six rebounds in only 22 minutes.

    A 7-0 Lady Eagles run to start the second half gave the hosts a 33-21 advantage. The Cajuns came back with a 14-2 spurt to tie the game at 35-35 with 13:10 left in the game.

    Williams got Louisiana started with a three-point play. Glenn's basket and Tolston's three-pointer pulled the Cajuns closer, before the pair struck again with the same combination to trim NT's lead to 35-34. A free throw by Glenn would knot the score at 35-35.

    Both teams struggled from the floor in the opening minutes, as NT held a 10-6 lead eight minutes into the contest.

    As the Cajuns continued to turn the ball over, North Texas started to find their shot. Nahogany Brown and Britt drained three-pointers to up the hosts advantage to 16-6.

    Down 19-9, UL generated a 6-0 run to close within 19-15. After four unanswered points by North Texas, the Cajuns outscored the Lady Eagles 6-3 to end the half down five.

    The Cajuns finish the regular season on Saturday at Denver.


  11. UL Basketball Coach Hall's team Finishing With a Bang

    Streaking Lady Cajuns now high on optimism

    UL Who can blame Louisiana's Lady Cajuns for a touch of euphoria heading into the Sun Belt Conference Tournament?

    Coach J. Kelley Hall's squad won three straight games, two on the road, and notched a first-ever victory over Denver, to wrap up the regular season on a high note at 8-18 and 4-11 in league play.

    Now, as it prepares to face Florida International in an 8 p.m. Thursday first-round game in Bowling Green, the Cajuns are eager for more.

    "Some of our players have been asking, 'After we beat FIU, who do we play?' " said Hall, whose team lost 78-49 at Florida International on Jan. 18.

    That's obviously taking a quantum leap in self image, but it does reflect what winning can do.

  12. UL Basketball Lady Cajuns peaking at the right time

    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. It seems like such a simple thing to average over 60 points per game as a basketball team. Sometimes, as Louisiana's Lady Cajuns coach J. Kelley Hall knows, that's easier said than done. Twenty-one times this season, the Ragin' Cajun women have been held below 60 points. Nine times, it was under 50.

    It's no coincidence that the Cajuns finished 8-18 overall and 4-11 in Sun Belt Conference play.

    But a trio of victories at the end of the season have Hall optimistic heading into today's 8 p.m. meeting with Florida International in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament hosted by Western Kentucky.

    "We've played our best basketball over the last 8 or 9 games," Hall said. "Our offense is getting into the 60's now. Denver scored 61, and that's the only time we've allowed over 60 and still won."
