Texas Southern wins first-ever tournament title - Mar 12, 2017

Texas Southern won its first Southwestern Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Tournament Championship with a 70-66 victory over Grambling State at the Toyota Center.
A back-and-forth contest was tight throughout, but Texas Southern (23-9) tried to pull away late. Up 63-59 with 5:17 left, Grambling's Chantiara Lewis (5'8''-G) nailed a triple to bring the top-seeded Lady Tigers within one, but women's basketball tournament MVP Joyce Kennerson (5'4''-G) responded on Texas Southern's next turn with a trey of her own.
Shakyla Hill (5'7''-G) and John'Ea Thompson (6'0''-F) claimed the lead for Grambling when they keyed a 7-0 run that left Texas Southern down 66-63 with 2:29 left. However, Texas Southern responded in kind, scoring the final seven points of the game, a run sparked by consecutive baskets from Chynna Ewing (5'8''-G) and punctuated by a Kennerson free throw.
TSU started the scoring with a Kennerson three that banked off the glass just before the shot clock expired, but Grambling responded with eight unanswered points, taking a slim lead into the second quarter. After a three-point play from Hill that put Grambling ahead 30-22 with 4:40 left, Texas Southern responded with a 10-0 run that Artavia Ford capped with a short jumper to hand the No. 2 seed Lady Tigers their first lead of the game. Both sides fought to a 35-35 draw at the break.
For the game, Texas Southern limited Grambling to 37.7 percent field-goal shooting. Thompson led Grambling (18-14) with 23 points - 10 coming in the first quarter - and nine rebounds. Hill scored 21 points, pulled down 10 boards and dished out three assists.
Kennerson led all players with 29 points, one shy of her career-best. She added three assists. Breasia McElrath (6'0''-F) chipped in 10 points.
