The Presbyterian College women’s basketball team had plenty of reason to feel slighted in its Big South Tournament game Thursday night at Radford – so much so that Alaura Sharp didn’t see the finish
Sharp received two technical fouls, the last in the game’s final 90 seconds, and was ejected to cap off a frustrating night as the Blue Hose suffered a 60-49 loss to the top-seeded Radford Highlanders in Virginia. The loss ends PC’s season with a 7-24 record.
PC was called for 30 fouls in the game, compared to 11 for Radford, and the Highlanders attempted a whopping 50 free throws (hitting 38). The Blue Hose, in comparison, shot just seven free throws – hitting all of them.
Tess Santos had 13 points off the bench to lead Presbyterian, while Trinity Johnson had 12 points.
