PHILADELPHIA -- The Felician College women's basketball team was outscored in overtime, 15-5, in its 79-69 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference loss to host Philadelphia University on Saturday afternoon at the Gallagher center. The setback ends Felician's school-record win streak at 10.
The Golden Falcons (17-8, 14-4) forced overtime on a Que Lyles (Bronx, NY) jumper with 28 seconds to play in regulation, completing a comeback from a six-point deficit in the final three minutes. Felician, however, went 2 for 9 from the floor in the extra session and committed five turnovers.
Felician had trouble containing Philadelphia standout frontcourt player Christine Wooding, who posted 35 points (including six in OT) and 19 rebounds. Wooding attempted 22 foul shots on the day, converting 20. Jac'Quel Saunders (Trenton, NJ) led four Golden Falcons in double figures with 18 points. Destiny Barnette (Paterson, NJ) scored 14, and Lyles finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Felician played from behind for most of the afternoon, trailing, 35-24, at haltime and 48-36 at the 14:39 mark of period two before a 20-8 Felician run tied things with 5:14 to play. The Rams then canned back-to-back three-point field goals, setting up Felician's final run of regulation.
Felician, which has already clinched first place in the CACC North Division, concludes the regular season on Tuesday at Dominican (N.Y.) College.
