WSU women’s basketball lost 51-63 to the Indiana State Sycamores Sunday afternoon.

The game began evenly. WSU forward Michaela Dapprich made two layups under the basket, and then Indiana St. followed with two made shots of their own. 

It was 6-6.

WSU then went cold. The Shockers didn’t make a field goal for ten minutes.

In that time the Sycamores made a couple of threes and pushed their lead to 9-16 with eight minutes left in the half.

WSU head coach Jody Adams then called a timeout to calm the team down.

After the timeout, WSU fumbled the ball and the possession away.

WSU looked shaken but on the ensuing possession, WSU forward Michelle Price got a steal that led to a layup and then Allie Decker made a three from the corner.

That closed the lead to 14-16.

What followed was two minutes of sloppy offense from both teams.

With two minutes left in the half, Decker made a jumper.  Price then got an offensive rebound that led to a layup. Price led WSU with 16 points.

WSU took their only lead of the game. It was 22-21 at half.

The Sycamores started the second half hot and took the lead with a three from guard Jasmine Grier. Grier had 16 of her 22 points in the second half and led all scorers.

The Shockers matched the Sycamores basket for basket and it was 32-37 five minutes into the second half.

The Sycamores then had a 16-7 run over the next seven minutes fueled by threes and good post play. They had a 53-39 lead with six minutes to go in the game.

WSU was stagnant on offense and did not have rhythm. The Shockers committed turnovers and missed shots. They were not in the game.

The Sycamores didn’t let the Shockers get close and were ahead by double digits for most of the half.

WSU has lost two games in the past two weeks, after having a 20 game win streak. They are 22-4 overall and 13-2 in the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Shockers will play again at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Evansville.
