LAFAYETTE, La. (2/27/08) The Ragin’ Cajuns survived a late storm from the North Texas women’s basketball team, downing the Mean Green 68-63 at the Earl K. Long Gymnasium on Wednesday.
The Ragin’ Cajuns (7-21, 3-14) surged out to a quick 10-point lead and weathered a late Mean Green run that saw the lead dwindle to just two points in the second.
ULL countered with the post play of Courtney Ratliff and Sonora Edwards. Both players registered double-doubles, Edwards with 16 points and 16 boards, and Edwards not far behind with 14 and 10.
NT had the low post game working, but the Mean Green guards couldn’t find a groove for much of the game.
The Cajuns took out a season’s worth of frustrations out on the Mean Green in the first half. ULL lead by as much as 11 points, and headed into the locker room with a 36-25 advantage.
