Middle Tennessee Turned Away By FIU 71-55February 2, 2002 · MT Media Relations
The Lady Raiders watched a two-point deficit (49-51) balloon with a 20-6 run by the Golden Panthers in the final 10 minutes of the game. Middle Tennessee shot only 37.5 percent from the field in the second half, and FIU shot 48 percent and the Lady Raiders were out rebounded by the Panthers 48-24.
"The game was really taken over at the backboards," said MT head coach Stephany Smith. "We were getting the looks we needed, but if the shot didn't fall we weren't getting a second chance."
Middle Tennessee will have a three game home stand starting with Sun Belt Conference foe Arkansas State on Thursday Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. in Murphy Center.
