Grant helps Pratt snap Lady Tigers' eight-game winning streak

Grant helps Pratt snap Lady Tigers' eight-game winning streak

Tatiana Grant, the Jayhawk West's leading scorer, poured in 20 of her game-high 31 points in the second half of Monday's game as Pratt pulled away late to defeat the No. 16-ranked Cowley College women's basketball team 78-64 in a game played at Wichita's Newman University.

Grant, who entered the game averaging 25.8 points per game, helped Pratt improve to 12-2 on the season. The loss snapped Cowley's eight-game winning streak and dropped the Lady Tigers' record to 10-3.

Pratt used a pair of 10-0 runs to lead 35-26 at the end of the first half. However, the Lady Tigers opened the second half on a 9-0 run and tied the game at 35-35 on a layup by Jessica Tinnin with 16 minutes remaining.

Cowley grabbed its first lead of the game (40-39) on a three-pointer by Tinnin with just under 15 minutes left to play and led 57-53 following a three-pointer by Jamie Johnson with 5:47 remaining.

Grant answered with a three-point play to pull Pratt within 57-56 and scored 10 points down the stretch as the Beavers closed the game on a 25-7 run.

"I didn't think we defended or took good shots there at the end of the game," Cowley head coach Todd Clark said. "We are going to have to develop some toughness."

Johnson led Cowley with 16 points, while Tinnin scored all 11 of her points in the second half.

Pratt's Elle Stein and Lanina Spence joined Grant in double figures with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Cowley will look to start a new winning streak when they play at Murray State Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be played in Tishomingo, OK. The Lady Tigers defeated Murray State 78-66 Nov. 4 in Arkansas City.

Saturday's game will be Cowley's last of the first semester.

"It would be nice if we were to come out and play with focus and energy," Clark said.
